Alpine Officials Contacts

Alpine Officials Certification Contacts

USSA Alpine Officials levels are tracked by a dedicated group of volunteers around the country. Those volunteers then forward the information on each individual's levels to the national office for uploading into the USSA database. If you have questions on your levels, you should contact these volunteers and they will then contact USSA if a change needs to be made.
