Alpine Programs

Regions

Regions are geographic, structural units that exist within the USSA alpine athletic program in order to organize and manage the sport of competitive alpine ski racing below the national level. Regions are confederations of divisions or states that address the needs and purpose of the athletic pipeline between the divisional/state level and national. The regions have several functions but are primary to:

  1. Acting as a collective governance organization for a group of divisions and/or states in common cause issues
  2. Calendaring and supporting international FIS ski racing below the level of the national championships and continental cups
  3. Conducting various regional championships for different age groups
  4. Management of athletic teams of USSA member athletes from those regions to national championships and FIS continental cups
  5. Creation and management within a national development network of training and other developmental opportunities for selected regional athletes who identify themselves through competition performance and a talent identification system.

Regional management rests in the hands of the alpine department staff.  While this is organized nationally, each region has a specific staff that deals with the varied means and methods of management of alpine skiing within the borders of a region, and works to facilitate efficient operations when the regions act collectively in national projects

Additionally, there are alpine governance structures, under the auspices of the Alpine Sport Committee, to represent the divisions or states on various committees and working groups to develop philosophy for the sport.
