Snowboard Competition 3.23-3.24.19
Wednesday, March 20, 2019
I’d like to start out by thanking you all for such an amazing season. It was not easy stepping into the roll as head coach, but the amount of faith and support I had from this team is what made it all come together. We have one of the best bonds I have ever seen as a team and I’m so excited for what’s in store next year.
Coming up is the 30th annual USASA Nationals 3/29 – 4/5 at Copper Mountain, CO. We have a huge nationals crew this year consisting of 13 athletes.
* Austin Cataudo (SS,HP,BX)
* Sadie Mckinlay (HP,BX)
* Dylan Cataudo (BX)
* Taylor Robles (BX)
* Breck Bensin (SS,HP,BX)
* Robbie Raimos (HP,SS,BX,GS,SL)
* Alex Modica (HP,SS)
* Gidget Holden (HP,SS)
* Angelica Blesofsky (HP,SS)
* Anthony Demartino (HP,SS)
* Winter O’brien (SS,HP)
* Zack Savage (SS)
* John Auerbach (SS,HP,BX)
Accompanying them will be Coaches Leon Townsend, Cody Laframboise, Jmark Graham, and myself.
In addition to all of the athletes that are attending nationals, almost all of our athletes who competed in USASA this year qualified. Not to mention all that grommet jam hardware we earned this year! I’m so proud of each and every one of our athletes for coming out and giving it their all this year. Everybody got to experience progression in their own way and we had a load of fun doing it!
Shout out to our wonderful coaching staff for being extremely reliable and having such passion for the sport. Each of these coaches have a unique and very crucial role in this team’s success and they crushed
it this year, I could NOT have done it without them. We love what we do as coaches and would like to thank you all for letting us be a part of your snowboarding journey.
This coming Sunday is our last day of scheduled programs. We are going to finish off strong with a super fun weekend of free riding. Our nationals groups will be training in the morning then shredding with the rest of the team after lunch. Then group up the team for goodbyes and photos at 2:45 on Sunday at the normal meeting spot.
Nationals groups, please come prepared with your “Nationals Packs” this weekend. We will eat lunch on hill then meet up with the rest of the team after lunch.
Thank you all again for such an amazing season with the team! I hope you all have an amazing summer and I am looking forward to seeing you all next year.
Wish us luck at Nationals!
