Shaun White, Hannah Teter, Jake Blauvelt, Kyle Clancy, Duncan Adams, Gus Kenworthy, and Zach Leach are just a few of the list of world-class talents that Bud has nurtured, many from a young age.

02-16 From Moms of Groms2

We love hearing from our members and parents and we especially love hearing the positivity that the USASA has bestowed on young groms.  We received this awesome letter from Michele, mother of 7 year old Jacob from our Rocky Mountain Series:

"Just have to say, we love USASA, we love Paul (in the Rocky Mountain Series), and we are grateful for everything you do for these kids!  My son is 7 and has been competing since he was 5…the skills he has developed through snowboarding (getting along with others, waiting his turn, learning to trust other grown ups (other team’s coaches) even if he doesn’t know them, and learning to both win and lose gracefully) have given him a tremendous boost in life.

Thanks for all that you and your team do!

Sincerely,
Michele Knight, mom of Jacob “

We would love to hear from YOU!
