Region 2 and your athlete needs you to be a parent volunteers. This year more than ever Region 2 needs parents from all clubs to become a certified official. There are many different types of certifications. US Ski and & Snowboard has increased the requirements to have certified officials in more positions than in prior years. Many of you of you have preformed these jobs in the past without a certification, but this season the rules have changed and you now need to be certified.
Not sure which certification to get, start by becoming start/finish ref. (This is the class labeled J.A)
Why become a USSA official? Taking part as a competition official is exciting--it brings you into the heart of the action! And it's a way of helping the thousands of young athletes who enter USSA competitions to have fun and to achieve personal goals. Who becomes a USSA official? Oftentimes it starts with parents of young athletes who want to be more actively involved. Former athletes are also great candidates with their background in the sport. But it can be anyone who has an interest in helping young athletes and playing an important role in their success. It's simple to get started.
