Coaches Certification

We're stoked on all of the coach cert clinics we got in this fall and early winter and appreciate you all being on the ball and filling in your coach friends. It's really important that we have certified coaches on USASA venues. We're trying to arrange more clinics for those who have slipped through the cracks.

The best way you can help get your peers certified is to help coordinate. Contact local clubs, arrange a group and venue, and contact Marie Basil at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Let's get this done ASAP as the WILL NOT be a last minute coach cert at Copper this season- we don't have a mad rush and disappointed coaches and athletes before Nationals, so let's work together now!

Safe travels

GromCo RMS Collaboration

IMG 5260The Rocky Mountain Series in a push to spread the creation snowboarding message and get kids shreding will be giving away four 100cm GROMco board binding completes.

If you win one of these boards it is our hope that you give this board to a GROM and “teach’em” to Ride!

A message from GROMco founder Jim Smith

My son was 2 and he needed a snowboard, I was not happy with what was on the market for kids rides.  It’s Hollywood/Disney snowboarding or dresser drawer stiff and wide, super edgy plank from the industry leaders. SO DIY GROMco snowboards.  

I assembled a press in my garage, started prototyping with my son and his buds and now two years later I have 3 sizes 80, 90 and 100cm kids boards with a veteran coach’s (me) design, hand built with pure creation (the essence of snowboarding) balance, base high for no edge catch, steel edge, sintered base, local wood, pine based epoxy and love in every one!  Accompanying my boards is a ”teach em” page on my website explaining how to get a super GROM on shred.

We all know some little guys and gals (cousins, nieces nephews, sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters) out there that deserve to feel the thrill of the ride, check out gromcosnowboarding.com and spread the world of creation snowboarding.

Sincerely Jim Smith DSB
