It’s important your athlete has the correct membership for his/her sport. Please review the options below and the Freestyle Membership & Benefits outline to determine which membership is best for your child.
SafeSport and Background Screening Requirements
U.S. Ski & Snowboard Members who are turning 18 years of age during the season or older who are in regular contact with or in a position of authority over athletes are required to complete periodic background screening and annual SafeSport training prior to being issued a U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership. (Short term members are excluded)
Option 1 – General Membership; AGE 0-17 // PRICE $30
The Freestyle general membership is a great option for your athlete (restricted to those age 17 and under) to train with his/her club throughout the season. However, the general membership does not allow for competition in U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned events.
Option 2 - Non-Scored Athlete Membership; AGE 18 and over // PRICE $100

The Non-Scored Athlete membership provides access to all levels of U.S. Ski & Snowboard scored and non-scored competitions at the local, divisional, regional and national level. However, as the name implies it does not include access to the U.S. Ski & Snowboard points list.
