2019-20 Membership Season Opens July 1
It may be sizzling outside, but the 2019-20 ski season officially gets underway on July 1 for U.S Ski & Snowboard membership. For those athletes attending summer/fall camps or competing in the southern hemisphere, renewing your U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership early should be at the top of your to-do list.
For the 2019-20 competition season, all U.S. Ski & Snowboard adult members and athletes, excluding short term and some alpine masters members, are now required to complete periodic background screening and annual SafeSport training.
“Renewing members are encouraged to get ahead of the curve by registering early - before the snow actually falls!” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Director of Member Services Sheryl Barnes. “That way athletes can get their SafeSport training and background screening completed and still have time for summer fun.”
Renewing athletes can get a jump on the season by taking their annual SafeSport training prior to renewing their membership by visiting www.SafeSport.org and signing in to their account and completing available courses. Just make sure to affiliate your U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership by providing your 7-digit membership number when you log into SafeSport. By doing this, SafeSport will provide U.S. Ski & Snowboard Member Services with updates on your progress and online course completion.
Seventeen-year-old athletes who will be turning 18 during the upcoming season may also complete their SafeSport training and get a jump start on their background check by registering early too. When you renew your membership, you’ll find a link on the final page of online registration. If you miss the link, Member Services will send an email with instructions within 1 business day of renewal/registration.
All renewing athletes are also eligible for a host of member benefits, including significant discounts on top winter, and summer, sports brands through U.S. Ski & Snowboard partners, and through U.S. Ski & Snowboard ExpertVoice platform.
The early deadline for membership renewal is Oct 15. To renew your 2019-20 U.S. Ski & Snowboard Membership now simply log into your U.S. Ski & Snowboard account. You’ll find a link to register for background screening on the final page of online registration after payment. Don’t worry if you miss the link we’ll email instruction on both SafeSport training once your registration is complete.
