U.S. Ski & Snowboard has recently updated their guidelines for the upcoming 2020-2021 season regarding COVID-19 awareness and safety, including a guide to returning to competition after testing COVID positive. Please check out the documents below and check out the rest of the US Ski & Snowboard site if you have any further questions.
Dear NYSSRA Members,
As the days grow shorter we traditionally begin to turn our minds to the next season of ski racing across the state. I’m sure this year many are just wondering how and who will be educating our children. But as we think about skiing the equipment comes out of storage and we size up our athletes to see who has grown and who can get one more year out last years “stuff”.
With the onset of COVID -19 that cut our season short last year, the NYSSRA Board has been busy throughout the summer with the appointment of a new Alpine Sports Director, Steve Mergenthaler, a new Administrative Director, Alicia Farone, a new website (check out NYSSRA.org ) and continual work from our various committees (development, coaches and COVID-19) drafting plans, (A, B and C) that will help lay out what will no doubt be a different kind of ski racing season across New York State.
As you may notice we're undergoing some new construction this summer at NYSSRA - welcome to our new website! Feel free to look around: check out our new map of Member Clubs, see tabs for all age groups (U12-, U14, and U16+), as well as Coaches, and Officials, too! We'll be adding more content as summer progresses so check back often. Schedules will be released by the first week in September or sooner for the upcoming season. In the meantime, don't forget to REGISTER and JOIN NYSSRA today! Click 'JOIN' on our main page to register for the 2020-2021 season. Enjoy your summer and start that ski conditioning early!
Want to thank all of our Athletes, Members, Programs, Areas, BOD, Committees, Sponsors, and support groups for the super season in 2019-20.
We are all still reeling from the effects that the COVID virus brought on us, and are moving ahead to plan for any adaptation to Local, State, Regional, and National directives. We will keep you updated on this as we move forward, but at this point NYSSRA is planning full steam ahead! We will be getting information out during the month of August and September regarding early season fundamental projects and Coaches education clinics.
As stated above the new website is a fluid project, very cool content will be added as we move through the next month or two. But in general this is a great new addition to NYSSRA! Want to thank the Board of Directors, Development Committees, and other key players, this effort will be a step into the next phase of communication with all athletes, members, coaches, officials, sponsors, and all support pathways. Cheers!
Ski fast, laugh much!
