Applicants must be 16 years of age or above to participate.

This event can be used for update credit for any discipline.

Price includes coaching by PSIA-E/AASI Education Staff and ORDA coaches, trampoline usage, facility storage, pool fees, and handouts.

Lodging: There is plenty of lodging nearby; search “Lake Placid Lodging” on the web where you’ll find a lot of places to suit your style and wallet.

Schedule: Training Time period will be 9am–4pm each day, with a 1-hr lunch break. Feel free to bring lunch. There is a snack bar with lunch at the pools, and it is a short drive to town.

Snowboarders: You must be at least AASI Level II. If you have participated in the past events, and are not Level II but could negotiate the ramp-sliding portion effectively, please contact Mickey Stone via e-mail at: cpage3@aol.com. Wrist guards, kneepads and full clothing from head to toe is required for your safety.

Preparation: You will be training on trampolines for at least half of the first morning. Wear clothing appropriate for working out. No shoes allowed, so wear appropriate socks. Also, jewelry and sharp objects need to be taken off. These trampolines are outside, so you’ll need to dress for the weather. For the pool you will need: Boots that can get wet for Telemark, Snowboard or Alpine. Skis or boards, preferably short, 150-175 cm. It works best with less shaped skis. So your straightest, shortest pair would be the best. Helmet a must. A Pro Tec or ski helmet preferred; no bike helmets because you need some type of soft or hard earflap in case you don’t quite land right in the water. Strap must be worn. PFD approved personal flotation device; not a seat cushion over your shoulders. Mouthguard found at any sports store (Play it Again, etc). One you put in hot water and form to your mouth. Optional Wet suit, shorty, Lycra suits, etc. Whatever you will be comfortable in during the temperature of the day. The water is not heated; it is in the cool 70s. Towels, sunscreen and cameras or video.

Schedule Day 1 8:15-8:45 Meeting/Organization/Handouts/Waivers 8:45-Noon Framing Safety and Training Groups * Warm-up flexibilities * Trampoline etiquette and instruction * Landing/turning/twisting/height * Advanced moves for those with past training * Viewing National Teams who are there Lunch 1:00 – 4:00 Afternoon Gear prep/ Waxing/Safety on jumps/Into the water * Approach/Take-off/Maneuver/Landing * Adding tricks Day 2 Repeat and continuation of the above. Trampoline to warm-up and into the pool when ready. The goal is to become more accurate with the basics and to add some tricks. This is an excellent event to begin your freeride career. It allows you to learn how to become more aware of your body in the air, and what movements affect you during approach, take-off, performing the maneuver, and landing. Basic trampoline maneuvers will be performed before any tricks are added. The basic and simplest maneuvers will be experienced before adding more difficult ones.

Why is it that snowboarders have to have some kind of credentials but non PSIA skiers can show up and just pay an extra $25?  I did a week long freestyle camp as a teen.  I can testify that every part of it, tramps, diving boards, etc in addition to the actual water ramp jumps is a blast. But, the training is totally necessary and you still might get a little dinged up.  Why not let non AASI Level II snowboarders share in that pain with non PSIA skiers??th_dunno-1[1].gif

Everyone is welcome. I think the fact that it is a little harder to negotiate the ramps on a board is why the conversation with Mickey beforehand. There were more boarders there last year than skiers so it really is open to everyone. ( Mickey was flipping on tele gear).
