U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Club Minimum Standards

Mission, Values and Code of Conduct

All clubs support and align with U.S. Ski & Snowboard's mission, values and code of conduct.

Membership Requirements

Ensure those in a position of authority over or in regular contact with athletes are members at a level which triggers background screening and SafeSport training, and in good standing. This includes board members, staff, officials, volunteers and adult athletes.

IF club has less than three BOD members: At least three (3) members of the club must be identified as leading or having authority over the ski and snowboard activities of the club and must form an athlete safety committee and are also members of U.S. Ski & Snowboard

All club coaches regardless of participation in U.S. Ski & Snowboard events must be members and in good standing.

Club must provide a list of board members for auditing purposes. The only exemptions provided are those listed below. Unless you have received an exemption your entire Board of Directors must hold a minimum of the Club Volunteer membership which includes SafeSport training and background screening per U.S. Center for SafeSport policy.

  • Board members of 501(c)(3) Foundation or Booster Clubs that are separate from Member Clubs and would not be considered an LAO because they do not have any role in managing or delivering programs or have any In-Program Contact (as defined below);

U.S. Ski & Snowboard Club Liability Insurance Program (CLIP):

Through its relationship with Lockton Insurance, the U.S. Ski & Snowboard's insurance broker, we are able to offer many ski and snowboard clubs the opportunity to purchase a general liability policy in conjunction with club membership. Not every club will be eligible. The program is designed for those entities that would be unable to obtain insurance or to do so at a reasonable price. 

Please note, U.S. Ski & Snowboard clubs that are owned or operated by a parent entity (from which insurance may be obtained) such as resort competition centers, resort-run clubs and universities, municipalities are not eligible for CLIP.
