SMS Freestyle travels the world for the best mogul training venues!
The SMS Freestyle Program trains on the best mogul venues around the world. In the fall our FIS team heads to the glacier in Zermatt, SUI to kick off the competition season training schedule and continues their prep period at Apex Resort, BC in Canada with our regional athletes in early December. During the winter competition season our athletes train right at home on World Cup, a dedicated FIS-level mogul training venue at Stratton Resort. In the summer we host training camps at some of the top resorts in the world - Mt. Hood, OR, Whistler/Blackcomb, BC and Perisher Resort in Australia. We will go whereever we have to go to get the best on snow training for our athletes!
SMS Freestyle Strength and Conditioning
The SMS Freestyle Strength and Conditioning program is supported by a member of the NSCA.
Trampoline Sessions in AAC
SMS Freestyle athletes have structured trampoline sessions in the Air Awareness Center - two to four times a week, depending on the season. Athletes follow a structured program, based on learning fundamentals and proper progressions.
Sport Performance Education
SMS Freestyle Coaches include sport performance education in the program curriculum. Athletes learn how to set goals, proper nutrition and sport psyche concepts to help them achieve their full potential.
SMS Freestyle Coaches plan enriching activities for our athletes on all trips and camps. The athletes can find themselves on a tour of local waterfalls, hiking on a scenic trail to the peak of a mountain with awesome views, seeking out Geo-caches or just about anything that provides a great experience and, of course, an “instagrammable moment.”
SMS Lacrosse and Soccer Teams
The full time academy schedule also allows our SMS Freestyle athletes the ability to play the fall and spring sports that they are passionate about, while still maintaining a solid, sport-specific strength and conditioning training program with the freestyle coaches in the shoulder seasons.
