A well-organized and managed club is the key to a successful sports experience for all members. Just as the profession of coaching has become increasingly more complex, demanding a broader base of knowledge and skills, so have the difficult challenges facing a club.
Whether a club is part of a school system, local recreation department, or a ski resort, clubs are being asked to be more professional and more aware of community issues beyond their clubs’ immediate mission. Overall, there are greater demands being placed on club structures and the volunteers who run them. The USSA is focusing on assisting member clubs as they strive to improve the athletic experience for all participants - athletes, parents, volunteers and administrators.
Sustained athletic success is dependent on the USSA Member Club Program. The club is the center of the athlete preparation, training and competition progression. The club is responsible for recruiting, retaining and developing young people who acquire, refine and finally master skills essential to success as an alpine competitor.
Through the USSA Member Club Program, USSA has the vehicle to service the most skiers in a cost efficient and effective manner. The ski and snowboard club is the base structure for all USSA programs and is the key to their success. USSA offers club membership tailored for each of its program areas: alpine, nordic, freestyle, freeskiing and snowboarding. Click on your sport below to learn more!
