The Grom Squad is for young kids who want to be challenged on their skis or snowboard.
The youngest age group, under 12, Grom Squad is for kids just getting into park riding as an introduction to coaching programmes. No park experience is necessary. Grom Squad is focused on fun, riding with friends & general park progression! It is all about building a solid foundation for future snow sports rockstars...
Super fresh, Groms have no or very little experience in the park, but want to be competitive. They're ready to commit to a whole season of training. They may have had trampoline experience.
Grom Squad athletes want to become competitive in local freestyle events like the Cardrona Park Attack, Piki Maunga Rangatahi & the NZ Cardrona Junior Nationals. Our Parks Squad coaches will guide you through each event. It is always a great group of kids that brave the elements together to learn & improve.
Grom Squad runs on Fridays & Sundays, with options to ride on both days or just one. This programme doesn't require a big commitment or lots of missed time from school, however the season-long programme is a great opportunity to get stuck into it & progress!
