In sponsorshiping there seems to be no age restriction. Burton welcomes Katie Ormerod to the Burton UK Rookie Program. After absolutely killing it at the Burton Am Tour in Germany and Castleford this autumn as well as being a formidable force at many of the UK's events over the summer the 11 year old from Brighouse, West Yorkshire is racking up the results.
She will now be rocking out and looking fresh dripping in Burton, Anon and R.E.D gear. Katie will join 14 year old George Woolley on the Rookie Program and will get the opportunity to learn from the best by working closely with the UK Burton Team. In January she will head out to the Burton European Open in Laax where she will be competing in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe events so fingers crossed she'll be bringing home the silver wear after that. Look out for the mini ripper at your local slope. She'll be the one doing all the tricks you can do… but switch! Not too shaby for an 11-year old from the island known as the UK.
