Points Lists

USSA Fall Adders

Zeroing of National lists to FIS 2018

The USSA lists are zeroed each summer to bring them in line with the FIS points list - so that FIS and USSA points for a competitor appearing on both lists will be roughly equivalent. This is done by comparing the FIS and USSA points of the top USA-FIS racers in each sex/discipline. The zeroing factors shall be such that the average of the USSA points of these representative competitors, after the factors have been added, approaches the average of the FIS points of these competitors. The adders are applied to every USSA racer’s points.

Men 28.07 7.34 6.79 11.27 13.06
Women 20.94 8.54 7.44 15.11 17.92

Alpine Points Information

Points List Information

To assure that your membership is processed for inclusion on any list, your membership materials must be received by USSA at least seven days prior to a closing date. Registrations are not considered received until they are complete. It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure that his or her USSA membership registration is received; you can contact USSA member services (435.647.2666) to check the status of your application.

USSA and FIS points are not continually being updated; they are recalculated for each new list. For more information on how points are calculated and closing and valid dates, see chapter 2 of your USSA Alpine Competition Guide which can be found on the rules page. Closing and Valid dates for the points list are listed above.

Single Penalization Situations (sickness, injury, other obligations)

Competitors who are unable to compete in sufficient scored events to maintain their seed points because of injury, illness, studies, military obligations, or church commitments may protect their points through single penalization.  Single penalization cannot be requested for lack of calendar opportunities.  USSA and FIS membership must be renewed each year in order to maintain points, even when an athlete has single penalty protection.  For more detailed information see the USSA Alpine Competion Guide, pages 25 & 26, which can be found on the rules page. Forms for both FIS and USSA Single Penalty Protection are available below.  Single Penalty requests much be submitted to USSA for both FIS and USSA by April 15.
