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.
USSA offers licenses from the USSA website:
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SIGNUP FOR USSA AT HYLAND. PLEASE REMEMBER TO OBTAIN YOUR USSA LICENSE BEFORE THE EVENT AND TO PRINT AND BRING PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP TO REGISTRATION!!!
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!
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’ll be a part of the fun with Midwest Freestyle Association this season!
There are plenty of opportunities to compete in Freestyle skiing. Just take a look at the 2017 Schedule found on this website. You will need a USSA License to compete.
Each meet will have an event registration fee, but they’ve been kept low again and will range in price depending on the event.
Central is the only division that does not charge a division fee at the beginning of the season.
