This camp at the AcrobatX center is for athletes ready to commit to freestyle skill progression for next season. Camp is coached by 2 world known coaches who will help you achieve the goals you bring to camp. Each camp day begins with dryland conditioning (run, stretch, body weight exercises). Athletes have two trampoline training sessions and two pool training sessions each day. Campers will need to bring a wet suit, bathing suits, life jacket, helmet, mouth guard, ski boots and twin tip skis that they are NOT planning to use next season.

Ski Boots: You can use your winter boots unless you plan to do more than 10 days of ramping.
Isothermal suit (wetsuit): The isothermal suit protects from the cold and helps with buoyancy. It is highly recommended for the youngest to allow a comfortable and effective training. We suggest a thickness of 5mm for maximum comfort on cooler days.
