Freestyle Programs

Moguls Development

After the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team is named in May 2013, based on the final NorAm Grand Prix standings for the 2012-13 season the top five men and women in moguls/dual moguls and the top two men women in aerials, will be named to the USSA development group. This will guarantee these athletes’ starts on the NorAm tour. All development group athletes must participate in the U.S. Selection Events. If a development group athlete is injured and unable to compete in U.S. Selection Events, the athlete must provide medical documentation stating they are unable to compete. Once medically cleared to compete, they would retain their NorAm start. An athlete who is named to the development group has until June 1, 2013 to accept their spot in the USSA development group. Once the USSA office has been notified that an athlete is retiring or the deadline has passed with no acceptance, the next athlete on the NorAm Grand Prix standings will be added to the development group.
