I live in southern Texas and I love snowboarding. Is there any way I can improve without moving up north?

So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?


1Hey Coach,
I live in southern Texas and recently I fell in love with snowboarding. I only get to board - at most - twice a year, and I'm afraid I'm never going to be able to get to the level I want to be. Is there any way I can improve without moving up north?

Hey Whit,
The chances of becoming a great snowboarder if you live in southern Texas are about as great as a kid who lives on corn farm in Nebraska becoming a world champion surfer. You need to live near snow in order to snowboard and the chances of a snowstorm hitting southern Texas are about as likely as 98 Degrees (who?) hitting the charts again.


Don't give up your dream of becoming a better snowboarder - but be realistic. Here's a few ideas for you and any other snowboarders who want to become better, without moving north.

  • Save up some money or ask your parents for some help and go to a snowboarding camp for a few days over spring break.
  • Try sandboarding. Sandboarding is good training for snowboarders and is also a lot of fun. For more info on sandboarding locations in Texas, head to www.sandboard.com.
  • Build a snow mountain in your backyard using slushies from 7-11 and ice from your freezer.


  • Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
