Kids Specialty Programs

The Hotham Snowsports Centre

The Hotham Snowsports Centre is home to a range of specialty programs to make sure your kids are challenging themselves on the snow. We have a range of ski and snowboard programs that are designed to improve kid's abilty, technique and confidence in their snow sport of choice.

Hotham Snowboarders Inc

Hotham Snowboarders INC. was formed in 2012 and is a not-for-profit SSA Pathway development snowboard club with programs designed around the core principle of snowboarding; HAVING FUN!

Last season we saw some of the best results for our HSI Athletes in the history of the club. We had multiple podiums at Interschool’s, Nationals and abroad. All of our Athletes saw great progression last season with the introduction to dry land training, athlete specific goal setting and more time on course.

We want to continue to build on this success and help our athletes reach their full potential whether it be as a competitive snowboarder or an all-round shredder.

We offer a number of different programs including:

  • Development Program (30 day structured SSA Pathway coaching program that runs over the season.)
  • Multiple school holiday programs
  • Drop in days on the weekends
  • Interschool/National race team training for schools and Colleges

Private coach hire where our expert coaches can design a program around person goals.

Hotham Snowboarders are pleased to be partnering with Haileybury College again this year in providing all of their snowboard athlete’s specific training sessions. Our expert coaches have devised a tailored program to prepare its athletes to succeed with on and off snow clinics. All members of Hotham Snowboarders are provided with on-mountain benefits as well as linking them into a Ski and Snowboard Australia accredited club.

We ride together, train together, progress together and make life-long shred buddies in the process.

We ride the whole mountain – park, powder, groomers as well as specialized race training sessions for SBX and G.S both on and off snow.

With the guidance of our professional coaches and structured programs we introduce our riders to snowboarding in competition and work towards achieving their individual goals – whatever they may be. To book a program or find out more information please visit our website:
