USSA has released an updated equipment matrix for the 2016-17 season. Check it out here.
The early alpine FIS deadline is May 31, 2016. Previous season FIS athletes and parents have been sent both an email notice as well as a reminder postcard. The USSA is also sending informational emails to first year FIS athletes and parents.
In addition, the USSA would like to take this opportunity to remind our club partners of the following requirements for FIS registration. In order to compete in a FIS race, eligible athletes must have the following: 1) A valid USSA Alpine Competitor membership, including any division or state dues and 2) A valid FIS license (explained below).
A FIS license means an athlete will appear on the FIS points list and be seeded by their FIS points. The cost of the license is $85 if paid by August 15th, $155 anytime after. No exceptions are made to the late fee. Please remind club members and parents that USSA and FIS registrations are due prior to the August 15th deadline
