Welcome to the 2020-2021 USASA season. 

We have improved upon age groups for the coming year. The USASA coaches and leadership team wanted to create a more harmonized USASA age class system to better match the international standard to meet with FIS and World Rookie Tour ages. This is especially helpful for those athletes making the jump up to The Futures Tour and other progress-driven events. All age groups advanced one year to line up with the international standard and make progression more streamlined as athletes move forward in their development. 

Age classes for both men and women, snowboarders and freeskiers for participation in Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Boardercross / Ski Cross. Snowboarder classes only in Slalom and Giant Slalom.

Progress means always putting the USASA athletes first and providing the most ethical, fair, and fun competition environment. For the 2020-2021 season, we have adjusted to a more age-appropriate class for the 6 & under group. The newly formed "Rascals" age group will experience an enhanced regional event structure that will have more of a focus on fun and inclusion.

These events for ages 6 & under will take place within the existing USASA regional competition structure and will only be available for regional points and ranking. Rascals competitors will not be eligible to travel to and compete at USASA National Championships. This adjustment is to bring our competition offering more in line with the U.S. Training Systems model and allow our youngest members more time to have fun regionally. Once athletes become Ruggies they will then be eligible to compete in the USASA National Championships.
