PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - Saxtons River, Vt. – Vermont Academy senior Connor Brown has been invited to U.S. Snowboarding’s Project Gold camp which takes place Nov. 1-3 in Park City, Utah. During the camp, athletes will train with U.S. Snowboarding coaches, including Peter Foley, Jeff Archibald and Ross Powers.

Each year the United States Snowboarding Association (USSA) selects a handful of up and coming athletes from the various competitive disciplines of snowboarding and invites them to participate in its Project Gold Camps. Project Gold Camps take hand picked athletes and hand picked coaches and puts them together in an exclusive training environment to help their progression and move them one step closer to a spot on the US Team for the Olympics.

Connor was picked as a result of his record in the USASA Southern Vermont Series, where he has been undefeated in his class for two years. Connor has been snowboarding since the age of seven and entered his first competition at age eleven. He competes in both Alpine snowboard racing and boardercross.

"This is the opportunity of a lifetime for Connor to expand his competitive horizon and gain exposure at the elite level," said Vermont Academy snowboarding coach John Kelly. "We couldn't be happier for him."

Vermont Academy is a private, independent boarding and day school in southern Vermont, serving grades 9 -12 with post-graduates.
