The GROMS program is a pre-competition snowboard development program designed for boys and girls ages 5 – 9. The program offers an opportunity for our youngest riders to explore various snowboard disciplines slopestyle, BX and racing) while doing a ton of free riding, preparing young riders to enter the competitive snowboard discipline(s) of their choice.
New GROMS should have the ability to perform basic link turns down Valley Run (a green run at Waterville Valley Ski Area). Emphasis is placed on having fun, developing a lifelong love for riding and building skills all at the same time. We foster healthy competition, good sportsmanship, team work and social interaction along with development of independence and responsibility.
We encourage parents to be part of the program by talking with their children about training, upcoming events and activities. Providing positive reinforcement for your children for all GROMS activities will help foster a lifelong love for riding and winter snowsports.
