Grand Prix Invitation Criteria

The Sprint U.S. Grand Prix series always brings the best of winter action sports to the USA. 

Entering its 19th season in 2014-15, it is the USSA’s longest-running domestic series. The series began in 1995, giving athletes like Shaun White and Kelly Clark the chance to compete on home turf while moving through the rankings to become the superstars they are today. Athletes must meet minimum criteria for invitation to participate in the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix, which will also serve as part of the Olympic selection process.
