The 2013 USSA Congress was a successful event bringing hundreds of USSA club leaders, athletes, coaches, officials and experts together for education sessions, informational presentations and policy decisions at both the sport and the board level, as well as social activities and informal sharing of best-practices across programs. The six days of meetings were highlighted by extremely constructive work, with a clear goal of Best the World. Best in the World is a manifestation of focused, specific, performance-oriented work at every level of the pipeline.
Mike Brown, the executive director of the Sisu Foundation, a successful nordic program north of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, sent a note over after the USSA Club Excellence conference.
"I wanted to say thank you for the USSA’s commitment and recognition that strategic, financial and operational are not done well enough by clubs and that shared best practices are needed." - Mike Brown, Executive Director, Sisu Foundation, Willernie, MN
