Option 1 – General Membership: AGE 0-17 // PRICE $20
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard general membership is a great option for your athlete to train with his/her club throughout the season and may be competing in both U.S. Ski & Snowboard and non- U.S. Ski & Snowboard competitions without earning points or ranking on the National Ranking list.
Option 2 – Competitor Membership:
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Competitor membership includes participation in U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned events and scoring to the national points list for scored events. You may upgrade your child to a competitor membership for his/her age class by calling Member Services on 435.647.2666. The $20 paid for the general membership and any applicable division dues will be applied to the upgrade. Additional division dues may apply.
