US Ski and Snowboard Alpine Official’s Advancement

The Alpine racing  ski season is over in PARA. Now is the time for you to send me your request form for a US Ski and Snowboard Alpine Officials advancement in the desired certifications.

After reviewing the certification matrix and If you meet the requirements, fill-out the "attached" form "AO Personal Activity Record".  You can check your USSS AO officiating record by going to the USSS website and query the Member Lookup or the Official Certification Viewer database. You can also review your AO credentials in the same database. You will need a USSS login (MY USSS). You can contact USSS for help in creating an account. 

Please send your completed "AO Personal Activity Record" to me at [email protected] no later than Sunday, April 21, 2019. I will then review your record, and if you meet the USSS AO Certification Guidelines, I will nominate you at the Eastern Regional Alpine Officials Clinic for approval at the USSS National Congress held in May. 

Please note that for those who took and passed any US Ski and Snowboard alpine specialty certification exams (RF, JA, TC, CC, CR, RA, DM, you were already provisionally credentialed for that certification earlier this season. Further, anyone who attended a PARA Alpine Officials clinic this season, you have earned a Competition Officials Certification level 1.

If you have any questions, you can email me or text/call me 570-640-7500.  

Thank you for your dedication to PARA Alpine Officiating.
