Our aim when setting up Kent Freestyle was to break down barriers and promote an open culture so that newcomers to the freestyle scene could learn from our experience… when we first started, competitions were a mystery and getting into them was baffling – information was hard to get hold of and even if it was available it wasn’t readily/willingly shared.
We joined Snowsport England and affiliated ourselves with Chatham Ski Slope in the hope of increasing our membership further.
Since then, the competition scene has opened up considerably, information is now free-flowing (partly due to sites like ours we hope!) and many of our members are enjoying success both nationally and internationally. However, our plans for coaching sessions at Chatham didn’t quite work out and although we held a couple of sessions and ran two very successful “Strawberry Jams”, it’s time to draw a line in the snow and move on…
So, going forward we are becoming an online-only club – we will continue to post news, advice and blogs and new members are always welcome (no annual fee from now on but any donations towards the running of the website are more than welcome.)
We are no longer affiliated to Snowsport England so if you need a club affiliation for national pathway purposes we would strongly recommend our snow buddies at Southern Freestyle based out of Bracknell.
Keep your eye on our website as we update it over the next few weeks.
