Nordic Programs

Nordic Combined/Ski Jumping Criteria

U.S. Nordic Combined / U.S. Ski Jumping

Each year, the top athletes in America are nominated to compete as a part of the U.S. Ski Team. Nominations include those active athletes who qualified based on published selection criteria in the prior season. The U.S. Ski Team announces official team rosters in the fall, naming those athletes who accept the responsibilities of being a part of the team and are planning to compete in the 2015-16 season.

Every athlete named to the U.S. Ski Team will receive a high level of world class program support, with access to athletic benefits including an elite coaching, sport science, sports medicine and high performance staff, access to the USSA Center of Excellence, and education opportunities.
