All JHSC programs represent a long-term- athlete-development model, which ensures the highest level of both participation and performance. At younger ages, our programs accommodate any kids that want to get out and experience the sport. Around late middle school and beyond our programs focus more and more on personal and program performance based on national and international benchmarks.

Our programs and staff use the following to structure all JHSC programming:

U.S. Ski and Snowboard Training Systems Athlete-Centered coaching and programming Positive coaching methods

  • U.S. Ski and Snowboard Training Systems
  • Athlete-Centered coaching and programming
  • Positive coaching methods - see Positive Coaching Alliance

  • Technical and Tactical skill acquisition measured by on-snow skill assessments
  • Physical fitness and physical literacy measured by physical assessments
  • Open communication throughout the "athlete team": Club, Coach, Parents
