Coaches Week 2019: Introducing Michael Slaughter JR. - National Halfpipe Coach
September 23, 2019
"Michael Slaughter, Halfpipe team coach has been one of the most all around positive additions to the High Performance Program. His attitude and coaching expertise could not be any better, he's easy to work with and has evolved our Halfpipe program in the last few years. From the veteran Derek landing on 2 podiums and a 7th at World Championships last year, to getting the Rookies working out consistently in the gym and on international podiums at the Rev Tour and Jr World Championships. These results are huge accomplishments and they keep getting better year after year." - Tyler Ashbee, Freestyle High Performance Manager
