BC Team Stories
September 9, 2021
The BC Mogul Team is hot coming off a big training camp in Mt. Hood last month. With international travel restrictions easing up, the team travelled down to Oregon for an enjoyable & productive block of training. After missing this camp last summer, it was a very nice change of scenery to go down south and learn new acrobatic skills and refine existing ones. Some highlights included; Josh Maga taking back-double-full to snow for the first time, George Bobyn & Cole Carey with their first back-fulls and Lynette Conn with her first front-tucks. The timing of this camp is conducive to new tricks going to snow for the first time due to a large amount of water ramping leading into the camp, which always makes it super fun… Nothing like landing a brand new trick for the first time!
The team is halfway through a water ramp & fitness camp in Whistler, where we will make our final adjustments to our jumps before the time comes to transition into the winter season fully. We’re capping off this training camp with a team-building trip to Tofino for a surf camp which we are all very excited about! Next up, we’re planning to post-up in Whistler through October to focus on making progress in the gym to ensure we’re ready to endure the physical demands of the busy competition season ahead. We’ll also have a daily trampoline element during this time to keep the acrobatic skills on point.
Finally, a quick shout-out to all prospect athletes who travelled out to Whistler early this month for their training camp. It was great to see everyone having fun and progressing their skills. The future looks bright for the Provincial Team with the level of athletes coming up through the pathway! So keep it up, you guys!
The BC Park and Pipe Team had a great summer developing the athlete’s strength and acrobatic skills. The team started the summer by centralizing in Whistler, where the athletes received guidance in strength and conditioning, sports psychology and nutrition from the staff at the Canadian Sports Institute. This was accompanied by developing the athlete’s fundamental jumping skills at the water ramps at Whistler Blackcomb and their trampoline skills at the Air House in Squamish. The team’s summer training capped off with two separate airbag training camps at Maximise in Quebec.
In October, the Park and Pipe team are super excited to be doing 20-days of on-snow training at the Stomping Grounds park in Saas-Fee, Switzerland!
