Nov 3rd weekly update.

Hey Everyone,
 This past Wednesday was our 2nd annual impact night at Burton. We had a great turnout and an amazing time was had by all. Thank you to all who came and made our night super successful. And a special thanks to Burton, Bryan Huber and Jeff Boliba for putting it all together

We have a some more exiting news to announce.

     MMSC snowboarding is proud to tell you that we will offer for the first time, a 7 week indoor freestyle training session. In partnership with, Green Mountain Gymnastics in Williston on Ave. D, MMSC Snowboarding has built a training program that will allow our riders to train twice a week in the gym on trampolines, foam pits, and a tumble track. We will work on developing air awareness, body control, and proper take off and landing techniques.
This session will begin on Saturday 11/5 from 6pm-8pm and will continue every Wed and Saturday until Dec. 21st.

Wednesday sessions will have a tumbling focus and will be held from 7:15pm-8:30pm. Wednesdays will mainly be coached by some of the best GMG coaches with input from our MMSC coaches.

Saturday will be more freestyle snowboard specific, with the MMSC coaching staff leading the way.

Fees will be as followed,

7 weeks Wed. & Sat. 14 nights for $350

7 weeks just Wed. 7 nights for $150

7 weeks just Saturday 7 nights $225

All athletes must fill out a new waiver at the start of the session.

Due to the new structure to keep things simple for GMG this first session, all payment will be made out to Scott Adam. Once the structure is set in place and GMG is prepared to deal with our program, all payments will be shifted to GMG. This is a brand new program that has just been created with in the past few months. We are the first in Northern Vermont to do a program of this kind, I am very exited to be able to present this exclusively to MMSC for the first time.

    Next, this Sunday 11/6 from 12pm-3pm MMSC will hold it's 2nd Burton rail session at the Burton Jib park next to the Skate bowls. A helmet must be worn by all riders and a new waiver must be filled out for this event.

Once again we will be looking for volunteers to help shovel and gather snow. If you have a truck, a trailer, or a shovel to help gather snow, please meet in the Burton parking lot @ 10am.

Our first snow pickup will be in Montpelier, at Central Vermont Memorial Civic Center @ 9am. Anyone able to help with this first pick up please email me.

    Last, I would like to tell you all that the calendar on our MMSC website, under snowboarding has been updated. This calendar as of today contains all of our important dates through August 2012, including all purposed summer camps.USASA dates and holiday camps. Please check it out, any changes in our schedule will be updated there.

Thanks once again to all who have been putting in time and dedication to make our program the best it can be.

I hope to see you all this weekend.
