Elim Christian College snowboarding team has had incredible success at last week’s Auckland Ski and Snowboard Championships held at Snowplanet in Silverdale.

The boys, many of who were competing in their first competition, did extremely well all while learning the ropes on the day.

The girls’ team, who have been training under coach Tody Granat for the past 3-5 years, took out six of the possible top 10 places.

Last week’s success is a good sign of things to come as the team prepares to compete in the North Island Secondary School Championships and the South Island Snowboard Championships, where only one top achieving North Island team gets invited to each year.
