Moguls Development

 After the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team is named in May 2014, based on the final NorAm Grand Prix standings for the 2013-14 season, the top five men and women in moguls/dual moguls will be named to the USSA freestyle moguls/dual moguls development group. The top four men and women on the final FFSP, not currently named to the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team or the EADP will be nominated for the freestyle aerials development group. This will guarantee these athletes’ starts on the NorAm tour. All freestyle development group athletes must participate in all event days the U.S. Selection Events. If a freestyle development group athlete is injured and unable to compete in U.S. Selection Events, the athlete must provide medical documentation stating they are unable to compete. Once medically cleared to compete, they would retain their NorAm start. An athlete who is named to the freestyle development group has until June 1, 2014 to accept their spot in the USSA freestyle development group. Once the USSA office has been notified that an athlete is retiring or the deadline has passed with no acceptance, the next athlete on the NorAm Grand Prix standings in moguls/dual moguls and the next athlete on the final FFSP in aerials will be added to the freestyle development group.
