Officials Certifications

USSA and USASA work in conjunction to host education for judges and officials in the US.  The education pipeline follows the progression of athletes.  Officials get their start at the grassroots level with USASA clinics and then move their way up to the USSA level with international clinics.

Judges Education

USSA and USASA both work with The International Judges Commission (IJC) to educate judges across the country. The IJC was formed to bring a high degree of professionalism and structure to freestyle snowboarding.  Through the establishment of a global educational forum, the IJC set forth the primary goal of training judges worldwide, through a unique and comprehensive training program, and protecting the interests of freestyle riders, through fair and accurate judging and progressive contest formats.

If you are just getting started in judging, check out the regional USASA clinics.
