Please Note: The above outline represents the pricing structure for a USSA Membership, which is broken down by sport and then category. In addition to the price of a USSA Membership, there may be additional fees, which are calculated during the online membership application process, that are based on the division or state dues depending on your division/state affiliation.

What methods of payment do you accept?

The USSA accepts Visa or Mastercard online and checks (personal or cashier), money orders, Visa and Mastercard for paper applications and renewals.

How quickly can I get a membership card?

Athlete memberships are immediate through online registration. Once you have registered/renewed, you may download a membership card from your My USSA account. Manual applications/renewals may take up to several weeks depending on the time of season.

NOTE: Coaches and officials who are pending for either background screening or completion of the Fast Start Coaching Course are not eligible to participate and will not be able to print a membership card the USSA receives a green light determination on background screening and/or the Fast Start Coaching Course has been completed.

 

What is FIS?

FIS stands for the Federation of International Skiing. It is an international registration required for some upper level competitions held in the U.S. and abroad. FIS ages and deadline may vary by sport. Please contact USSA Member Service for details at membership@ussa.org or 435.647.2666.

How can I get a receipt for my membership?

Members using the online registration system will be automatically emailed a receipt. If registering by mail, fax or email and you require a receipt, please note your request on the application or renewal form. Otherwise, you may contact Member Services by phone at 435.647.2666 or by email at membership@ussa.org to obtain a receipt.

Can I sign up at an event on the day of the race?

Some event organizers do let athletes register on site, but there is no guarantee. USSA recommends you sign up online to avoid problems and delays in activating your membership. On site registration is prohibited for coaches and officials.

How long does it take to get a membership processed?

Online registration for USSA athlete memberships is immediate. Paper applications and renewals may take several weeks depending on the time of the competition season. Manual memberships are processed in the order received.

NOTE: Coach and official memberships may require successful completion of USSA's background screening and/or Fast Start Coaching Course prior to activation.Please allow several weeks for background screening (longer for foreign coaches).Screening times vary, so please register early.  

Do I need to add the rush fee?

No rush fee is required if you are using the online registration system. If you need your membership processed quickly and choose to submit a paper application, you have the option of including a rush fee of $25, which will insure processing within one-two business days.
The rush fee only applies to processing of the membership. Once processed you may download proof of membership through your My USSA account.

NOTE: The USSA can rush the processing of a coach or official membership, but cannot rush the background screening. So, although your coach or official membership can be processed in 1-2 business days with a Rush Fee, positive screening results must be received by USSA before a coach or official is eligible to participate. In addition, completion of the Fast Start Coaching Course may be required to activate some coach memberships.
 

Does everyone pay the late fee?

New members are exempt from late fees. The USSA late fee is applied to all renewing members, with the exception of those holding a youth membership, or those who hold only an official’s membership. If any other membership is held then the USSA late fee does apply. Please be advised that division and/or state organizations may charge a late fee in addition to the USSA late fee and may charge late fees to youth and official members.

Can I renew/join over the phone?

No, USSA cannot accept registrations by phone. USSA accepts applications through our online registration system, by mail, fax or email.

How do I know if I need a USSA membership?

If you are participating in a USSA sanctioned event you must have a USSA membership.

Linking members to a My USSA account

One of the many benefits of a My USSA account is that you can use it to manage any number of Member accounts. For example, if you're a parent you can link your son's or daughter's member account and thus have the ability to easily renew their membership or see their ranking. In order to manage a Member account you need to link the Member account to your My USSA account. This can happen one of the following ways:

  • Automatically: When you create a My USSA account, if the last name, date of birth, and gender you enter are the same as a Member account on file then you will be asked if you want to link the two accounts together. 
  • Manually: You can manually link Member accounts by visiting the "Link Additional Members" page and following its instructions.

Benefits of your USSA Membership:

  • Participate in USSA events
  • Access to discounts from USSA partners and suppliers see list
  • Subscription to a top ski or snowboard magazine
  • Access to select athlete and member tools
  • Directed content based on your sport and area of interest
  • Access to Center of Excellence TV
  • Access to USSA educational materials through the USSA Education shop
  • Excess participant accident insurance during USSA sanctioned events*. Click here for details.
