Team Mentality

Joe Forte, the Director of Blue Mountain Learning Center and Director of Adventure Camp and founder of the Freerider program, believes in the importance of training athletes “without a competition or performance-based focus. We found out that allowing kids to drive themselves and motivate their own goals really showed a lot of success. We went to nationals 6 yrs in a row, sometimes taking home 12 medals, 7 of which were gold. The key is not forcing them into distinguishing. I carry that same vision into our summer programs. Group mentality. Positive attitude. Support the team's weakest link. Help bring each other up when they are down. Keep thoughts positive. Encourage each other.”
