Team Overview

SVSEF’s Snowboard Devo program is the developmental snowboard program for SVSEF Baldy-based teams. Devo is for “Baldy- Ready” kids, meaning athletes who can ride the lift and are ready for the challenges of longer, more advanced runs, off-piste & groomed, and who understand safety rules and mountain etiquette. We practice all-mountain basic riding, jump and park skills, bump skills and racing techniques with a strong FUN-damental emphasis. SVSEF’s Devo program is designed to introduce and refine skills required to advance within SVSEF’s snowboard program. The SVSEF Devo program is staffed with professional coaches who teach age-appropriate skill progression inline with SVSEF and USSA team building and skill development philosophies. Snowboard athletes in the Baldy Devo program will be grouped with fellow riders at the beginning of each session.

Holiday camps (Christmas and spring break) are included as a part of the Devo team experience, and offer specific opportunities beyond regular weekend programming. Times and dates for holiday camps are based on creating safe and appropriate practice opportunities based on crowds, practice space, and conditions.
