Points and Rankings

USSA Snowboard competitor members receive national points for each USSA-scored competition in which they finish without disqualification.  Competitors begin their points profile with 0.00 points and may increase these points to a maximum of 1000.00.  Points are used to rank competitors nationally on the USSA Snowboard National Ranking List.

The list provides competition organizers with the data to establish a start order for competitions.  This also allows competitors to compare their performance against the performance of riders in other parts of the country whom they may not compete against.

The USSA Snowboarding National Ranking List is based on a "place-points" scale.  This simply means that for every scored competition sanctioned through USSA, points are awarded from 1st place to a maximum of 100th place.

The exact calculations of the points awarded to each finish place is determined by the competition level, and the average points of the best five riders starting the event.  Once the competition level and average points have been determined the event is the applied to the appropriate points scale.  For more information on how points are calculated, see Chapter 2 of your USSA Snowboard Competition Guide.

To assure that your membership is processed for inclusion on any list, your membership materials must be received by USSA at least seven days prior to a closing date. Registrations are not considered received until they are complete. It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure that his or her USSA and/or FIS membership registration is received; you can contact USSA member services (435.647.2666) to check the status of your application.

To compete in a USSA Sanctioned Event, an athlete must be a member of USSA. To compete in a FIS Sanctioned Event, an athlete must be a Competitor member of USSA and have a FIS number by being inscribed with FIS.

USSA and FIS points are not continually being updated; they are recalculated for each new list. For more information on how points are calculated, see Chapter 2 of your USSA Snowboard Competition Guide.
