The 2021 USASA Annual Silent Auction is all about our USASA community. It’s a celebration of our athletes, our perseverance, and the light at the end of the tunnel.

For the second year in a row, the USASA National Championships have taken a back seat to the pandemic. Through this experience, we have proved that we are flexible and together we can rally around the regional communities of USASA. To culminate the experiences we have shared we are launching our second annual USASA Silent Auction to celebrate what we have all been through and set the stage for a brighter future for USASA.

The funds raised in this Annual Silent Auction will support the Mission and Vision of USASA. We have several new initiatives in light of the past season and the need to provide additional support to our regional series who have been greatly impacted by COVID-19.

The USASA gives athletes of all ages, genders and abilities an opportunity to develop their competition skills, build confidence, find community and flourish in an environment that nurtures creativity, progression, and inclusion.

The USASA Memorial Fund is an opportunity for families to celebrate a loved one with a gift made in their honor, a lasting legacy that will have an impact for years to come.

The Journey Begins Here
The USASA supports the Olympic and athletic dreams of over 5000 USASA competitors, coaches, judges, and officials.  The USASA is represented by 31 regional series that host events from coast to coast. These events give athletes of all ages and levels an opportunity to hone their skills, build confidence, find community, and flourish in the safety of an environment that nurtures creativity, progression, and inclusion. The USASA also provides vital programs that are the foundation for the development and education of coaches, judges, and officials. Whatever your journey is, it starts with the USASA.

The USASA is a Guidestar Platinum rated 501(c)3 non-profit organization with over 30 years of trusted experience. As a not for profit organization, the USASA relies heavily on membership revenue and fundraising to support our $1.8 million dollar operating budget.  Without your help, we wouldn’t be able to fund all the various programs and initiatives provided by the USASA.  

Some examples of resources provided by USASA :

  • Membership subsidies for our youngest competitors- Free memberships for our youngest rippers and a scaled cost structure.

  • Membership discounts for our US Active Military and Veterans- A fixed $50 membership for all active or retired military service

  • Education development programs for coaches, judges, and officials.  USASA delivers all 100/200 level programs for coaches, judges and officials.

The USASA invests every fundraising dollar raised back into snowboarding and freeskiing and also helps to support the organizational fixed costs. With your support, the next generation of athletes, coaches, judges, and officials will have a place to thrive in their development creating access to Olympic dreams and a whole lot more.
