ALPINE OFFICIAL'S CLINIC - CHANGE IN VENUE

The Alpine Official's Clinic will be held on October 27th and 28th at NUBS NOB.  Stay tuned for more information as to which classes will be held each day.  The update will be held at the beginning of each day and the other classes will be after the update.  This is a great time for you to learn more about the sport and to become licensed to work at many of the positions for which we need volunteers.    If you need more information on what is involved in each position, email Yvette at cussastarter@hotmail.com and we can determine which position is best for you.  If you are planning on taking a certain class, for example if you want to take the Timing class or the Referee class,  please let us know so that we can make sure that class is offered.

The cost for the Update and for any class is $5.00 each.

If you want to become a licensed official you must either have a coach/official or official membership.  Prior to taking one of the classes for a licensed position, you must take the online Competition Official class.   Please print the quiz, complete the quiz, and bring the quiz to the A.O. Clinic.  This must be completed prior to taking a licensed official class and it's corresponding exam. 

The first class on each day will be the "Alpine Officials Update", which lets you know about all the important changes made since last year.   Everyone  wishing to become licensed must take this update.  All current licensed officials must take this update every other year. 

Please be sure to print off the applicable study guide for all classes you will be taking.  The Competition Official study guide/test, Alpine Officials Teaching Update and Review,  and the study guides can be found by clicking on the following link:

SafeSport Training

The US Government recently passed a law called ‘Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017’ which now makes failure to report suspected child sexual abuse to police a violation of federal criminal law.  Additionally, federal law now requires that adults who have frequent contact with or are in positions of authority over athletes must receive consistent education on prevention and reporting.  Until a coach or volunteer passes the SafeSport training, their U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership will remain on pending status.   Memberships will be activated once all requirements are complete and U.S. Ski & Snowboard receives verification of completion of SafeSport training from the U.S. Center for SafeSport.  Please keep in mind coaches, officials, or volunteers noted as pending for any requirement (SafeSport training, background screening, etc.) are not eligible to participate in U.S. Ski & Snowboard events.

SafeSport education modules are found at https://safesport.org/.  You will be required to create an account using our U.S. Ski & Snowboard safesport access code which you can find in the email sent to you from USSS.  If you need assistance setting up your SafeSport account, please contact them using the following link https://safesport.org/contact or you may call them at 720-676-6417.

The U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S. Ski & Snowboard require you complete the following education requirements:  

1.     Emotional and Physical Misconduct

2.     Mandatory Reporting

3.     Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
