Club Education

The USSA Club Development Program is based on the principle that every organization should strive to be a "learning organization".

"Organizations learn only through individuals who learn. Individual learning does not guarantee organizational learning. But without it no organizational learning can occur."- Peter M. Senge, author of "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization"

Club education is built around the USSA Guide to Club Excellence, a comprehensive and dynamic guide outlining the principles and practices for running a successful and sustainable ski and snowboard club. This guide is available as a free resource to USSA clubs, email Ellen Adams for access.

Various Club Expert Consultants and Jon Casson, Sport Education Director and Ellen Adams, the USSA’s Club Development Manager, will conduct Club Excellence Workshop webinars. These workshops will focus on the major elements that contribute to club success by further presenting and discussing the Best Principles and Practices contained in the Guide to Club Excellence.  For more information please click here.
