Goals of the Jumps and Bumps program:

The goal of the Jumps and Bumps pro­gram is for the young ath­lete to learn all the basic freestyle ski­ing skills. The ath­lete will learn jump­ing skills and sim­ple tricks like grabs, twisters, spreads, 180s, 360s, etc. They will work in the ter­rain park to learn ter­rain park eti­quette, how to nav­i­gate and make route selec­tion in the park accord­ing to per­son­al abil­i­ties, and how to approach a box and a rail. In the moguls, the ath­letes will learn how to pick a good line, how to effec­tive­ly absorb the bumps and how to con­trol their speed. When an ath­lete grad­u­ates from this pro­gram, they will be ready to enroll in the Freestylerz pro­gram, the next stage in the freestyle pro­gres­sion for more advanced/older ath­letes (9–12). Build­ing strength and sta­mi­na by being active in oth­er sports is encour­aged; activ­i­ties such as gym­nas­tics and tram­po­line com­pli­ment the ath­let­ics required in freestyle ski­ing.
