Having a Successful and Event-ful Season

Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2015

As we head into the final days of 2015, our season is just getting started, so we thought it was only fitting to do a post on hosting events.  While we aren't going to get into any advice for the events you may be hosting in your homes this time of year, we've got quite a bit of information on hosting events at your club.  The USSA Club Resources page on Logistics houses a variety of guides and templates to help answer any questions you may have about hosting an event.

The Clubhouse: Our final webinar for 2015 in the USSA Club Excellence Series was on December 17th, so now is the best time to get caught up on any webinars you may have missed this season!  You can find all of the past recordings, and a sneak peek at what's in store for 2016, here.
To go along with this post's event them, we are featuring the official USSA Event Organizer Handbook.  This handy guide covers everything from job descriptions to safety, so be sure to check it out!

Coaches Corner:  Coach Development Manager, Jon Casson offers some insight on the Benefits of Hosting Competitions.

Clinic Schedule: Here are the most up-to-date clinic schedules by discipline: Alpine, Cross Country, Freeskiing, Freestyle, Nordic Combined/Jumping, and Snowboarding.

Parent Perspective: As we head into the competition season we focus on what it takes for athletes to perform at their best - here is a great resource offering what it takes for Parents to be at Peak Performance

US Ski and Snowboard Team TV Schedule:  Did you know that you can watch World Cup footage on NBC and Universal? After hitting the slopes, grab some hot cocoa and cheer on the US Ski and Snowboard Teams as they represent Team USA this season. You can find the entire schedule here, so you won't miss any of the action.

Featured Athletes:  All of our athletes have officially been named for the 2015-16 season. Here are the announcements for the Alpine Ski Team, Nordic Combined Ski Team, Cross Country Ski TeamFreestyle Aerials Ski Team, Freestyle Moguls Ski Team, US Freeskiing Team, and US Snowboarding Team

Do you want to be featured on our blog?  We want to kick of 2016 with a bit on New Year's Resolutions, and who better to offer some insight on the subject than you, our dedicated clubs and coaches.  What are some things that you are looking to do as a coach or club member in the next year to make this the best season yet?  Please take a moment to tell us your plans for 2016 and you might just see your name in the next Sport Ed blog post!  Thank you in advance for your participation - we can't wait to hear what you have to say!
