Dryland Acrobatic Training:
The use of dryland acrobatic training facilities has been a key component to the successful development of many elite level freestyle athletes. Trampolines, foam pits and airbags allow athletes to fine tune the body movements required to perform inverted aerial manoeuvres without risk of serious injury.
A testament to the value of these facilities can be drawn by the huge progression in the manoeuvres freestyle athletes are performing in the competitive arena over the past 10 years. These new aerial ‘tricks’ have all been developed, performed and perfected on dryland facilities before an athlete first performs them on-snow.
From pathway programs to elite level programs, these valuable dryland training facilities have now become a central component to any successful freestyle or freeride training programs.
