All U10 team members are expected to join the United States Ski Association. USSA is the umbrella organization for the sport of skiing in the United States. USSA sanctions (and insures) the majority of competitions and events that U10 skiers will take part in this season. You can become a member online at http://my.ussa.org/membership/start
U10’s should get a youth membership. This costs $80 (we have some inside information that this MAY go down next year). You may see some notes about “late fees,” but there are no late fees for new members or “youth” members. Upon completion your skier will get a USSA number and a PDF of a membership card. You will need this to register her/him for some of the races we will attend this year, and at many you will need to bring a print out of the PDF to attest that your child is a member.
