Coaches and Officials Updates/ Clinics/ Exams

USSS Alpine Certified officials requirements are back in effect this season. The temporary suspension of the certifications requirements for CC, JA, RA and TC with only a CO1 certification has been terminated. 

All AO certified jobs for sanctioned USSS events will be required as per USSS ACR. 601.3 - 601.3.7

The new CO1 online certification is the prerequisite for all other AO certifications clinics/exams.  Although the CO1 cert is not required to attend the coaches & officials Bi-annual Update it is strongly recommended that any member over the age of 18 obtain the CO1 certification. 


NYSSRA will be hosting in person AO certification clinics & exams this fall with the schedule & registration asap. Updates & TD Workshop will be virtual again as done last year. Registration will be at Adminskiracing once the schedule is finalized.

CO1 Prerequisite
   New officials and those without a CO1 certification wanting to attend a AO certification clinic need the CO1 prerequisite for all AO certifications clinics. Members need to take this CO1 course. 

Email me for the course/exam and email the test back to me for grading and credit to USSS prior to attending an in-person certification clinic.
