Our Mission Statement

Helping athletes become better people through competition and education.

Welcome to the Method 4 Life Academy:

We are stoked to launch our programs for the 2017/2018 season.

After a very successful 2016/2017 season, that saw success from development to professional levels, the M4LA staff cant wait to help take our riders to the next level. One of our cornerstones is to offer elite level training to all ages of athlete, and that starts by having excellent coach to athlete ratios. For this reason, Method 4 Life Academy will be capping numbers on all our programs.

We don’t want to be a conveyor belt of kids, a child minding service or program where the kids get lost in the mix. We want to see the maximum amount of progression, building of skills and most importantly, FUN for our riders!

So please check out our programs, get back to us with questions, and get enrolled in our programs before we run out of space. Don’t forget our early enrollment discount when you pay in full by October 1st! See you on the hill!

The Method 4 Life Staff.

Our Coaching Values


Confidence

Believe in yourself when attempting a new maneuver, success is way easier and more fulfilling with the right support group.

Practice

If you love it, dream about it and enjoy working as hard as you are able on it then you will be successful at whatever you do.

Perseverance

It is not one contest or trick that makes a snowboarder who they are but the whole career that an athlete has that defines them.


Mental Preparation

When it comes to competition 60-70% of the contest is mental preparation. We encourage you to try different techniques to be grounded and ready to learn.

Passion

The approach is not being attached to the results but being driven from within to always want to become better for the love of snowboarding.

Progression

You will do great if you love what you do, this makes a self-fulfilling work environment where to be the best is a fundamental to a realizable outcome.



Get ready with us for the next Winter Olympics and beyond!

We know our athletes have the passion, commitment, and dedication to make it happen.


Our World Class Coaching Services

We offer an unique program that truly puts the athletes first.
While we are a competition-focused group of coaches and athletes, our program is different because we offer an athletic based educational program, along with year round training opportunities.

These opportunities allow athletes to explore more of the snowboard industry as well as aid and sustain the building of professional careers.
Athletes are arranged into coaching groups based on experience, ability, age and competitive goals. We strive to build groups that are progressive, safe and fun for each athlete. A positive team dynamic is essential for maximizing positive athlete experiences as well as achieving top performances. With this in mind, we keep athletes and coaches together with their group as much as possible within the demands of the competition schedule.

• Athletic growth • Respected within the community • Mutually beneficial partnerships • Sound elite athletic pipelines • Affordable elite programs
