Volcom Will Be Outfitting The U.S. Snowboard Team Through The 2022 Olympics


Yesterday via a press release it was announced that Volcom, a clothing brand specializing in action and snow sports, has become the official apparel partner of the U.S. Snowboard Team. This includes outfitting the Snowboardcross, Slopestyle/Big Air, and Halfpipe teams through the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games.

“We are so excited to be the official outfitter of the U.S. Snowboard Team. To have the Volcom stone be worn by the best athletes, on the highest of stages in this sport is an honor,” said Todd Hymel, CEO of Volcom. “As we celebrate 20 years of Volcom Outerwear, this partnership ushers in a new era of our history. Performance and innovation are the foundation of everything we do at Volcom. We look forward to working closely with all the athletes to gain insights, so we can continue to create best-in-class, elevated product.”

Volcom will be outfitting the entirety of the U.S. Snowboard Team. This will include both the men and women athletes, coaches, and support staff.

“Volcom is a brand that has strong ties to snowboarding,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President and CEO Tiger Shaw. “We have an opportunity to embark on the journey to the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games together, and I believe that’s powerful. Alongside a strong and balanced roster of riders as well as an elite coaching staff, the Volcom partnership lays the groundwork for the athletes to perform at the highest level and continue to push the boundaries of competitive snowboarding.”

This outfitting partnership will be for any and all international competitions, including World Cup, World Championship, and National events, as well as official training camps globally leading up to and during the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China. 

There was one other outlet, however, that Volcom used to announce the partnership. Through the company's YouTube channel, Volcom released a video announcing the partnership. The video has more than a few U.S. Snowboard Team members and a guest appearance by NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.
