On Feb 11 and 12, 2016, Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, was converted into the Polartec Big Air, a 140-foot tall, 430-foot long man-made snow-covered ramp and landing area covering center field to home plate.  Thanks to US Snowboarding Association, members of the USASA Series in the New England and East Coast regions were invited to come out and for National Club Day including meet and greet with competitors and view qualifying events. 

Members from our Maine Mountain Series were lucky enough to be interviewed by local Channel 4 News.  We are very proud to have past USASA members such as Olympian Ty Walker and Chas Guldemond participating in the event.  Chas’ parents, Cindy and Paul Guldemond originally ran the USASA New Hampshire Series

Great reprsentation from Northern Vermont Series and Catskill Mountain Series enjoying the qualifing events as well as our USASA booth packed with snowboard and freeski enthusiasts managed by our Massachusetts Series.

02-16 From Moms of Groms3

We are truly grateful for the awesome emails coming in from you, dedicated parents of our incredible members, sharing your testimonies and stories.  Here is a great letter from Alicia, mother of 7 year old Bennet from our Upper Midwest Alt Series.

"Hello –
Bennett has competed in the Upper Midwest Alt series for the past two years as a ruggie. Going into the series we were not sure what to expect. Lauren, Jay and the whole team were so helpful in getting Bennett set up to compete & in helping us understand how the USASA works. It has been amazing to watch Bennett's growth - competing offers so many opportunities to these young athletes. Bennett looks forward to the competitions; seeing friends and having fun are what it is all about! Big thanks to the USASA for so many amazing experiences!


Thanks,
Alicia Schneider
7 yr old Bennett’s mom"


We would love to hear from YOU!
