If you want to compete, you need a USSA LICENSE! Take care of this BEFORE you get to Hyland. 

All Nybora and MFA events will be sanctioned by the United States Ski Association (USSA).  That means that in order to participate in a MFA or Nybora competition event this season, the participant needs to obtain a USSA license/membership.  PLEASE OBTAIN YOUR USSA LICENSE PRIOR TO THE EVENT.  This is a competitor license that can be obtained online (info on how below).  Having USSA sanction all of our events helps ensure a consistent and safe event and allows all of our events to receive a national ranking.  National ranking is important to the division because it is through national ranking that we are able to qualify skiers for Junior Nationals at the end of the season.

Three types of licenses are available from USSA (from the USSA website):

Competitor License: if you’ve been a member of USSA in the past, this is the license you need.  You should have received your renewal earlier this year.  Cost = $150-175/season

Rookie License for 13 and up: All first time USSA members could obtain this license/membership.  Note: if a skier qualifies for Junior Olympics, she/he will need to upgrade this license to a Competitor License.  Cost = $80/season

Youth Competitor: 12 and under competitors that do not wish to be ranked and will not be eligible for Junior Olympics.  Cost = $60/season

And..once again this year, Central is the ONLY division WITHOUT a division fee!  So you just need to get your USSA License (outlined above) and you’re set!

USSA membership can be obtained online by visiting:



If you have any questions, please contact info@nybora.com.

We hope you’ll be a part of the fun with Midwest Freestyle Association this season!

You have plenty of opportunities to compete in Freestyle skiing.  Just take a look at the 2015 Schedule found on nybora.com.  You’ll need a USSA License.

Each meet will have an event registration fee, but they’ve been kept low again and will range around $45 depending on the event.  Central is the only division that does not charge a division fee at the beginning of the season.

The 2015 season should be a blast!

Thank you,
