What is USSA, and when is membership required?

The United States Ski and Snowboard Association is the governing body for the sport of Freestyle Skiing, Alpine Racing, Snowboarding, Cross-Country, Nordic Jumping and Disabled Skiing for Olympic, international and domestic competition. The USSA sanctions hundreds of snowsports competitions, as well as hundreds ski clubs, across the country. These clubs are the foundation of winter training programs and ski academies across the country. Freestyle America is a USSA member ski club. It is through this sanction that Freestyle America camps enjoy programs at the Blackcomb/Whistler ski area, and at the US Olympic Training Center and the Olympic Jumping Complex in Lake Placid. The United States Ski and Snowboard Association is the governing body for competition in the United States as recognized by the FIS and IOC.

We encourage all athletes to join USSA and participate in Competition Programs.  As of July 1st, 2013 USSA Membership is no longer prerequisite to participate in our programs.

Please take careful note of the dates of your camp. Membership expires annually on June 30th. If any portion of your camp occurs on or before June 30th your athlete will need to have a current 2012-2013 membership.  In early May, 2013-2014 memberships are available online at USSA and result in IMMEDIATE memberships. If you do not have a 2012-2013 membership before May 1st, you must contact the USSA Membership Services Department directly at 435.649.9090.  No need to send us a copy of your card.
