NC/J Become A Coach

Welcome to ski coaching!  Coaches are the backbone of our clubs and make a tremendous impact on our sport in the United States.  Whether you are helping out on a part-time or volunteer basis, or you are choosing coaching as a full-time profession, the influence you have on those you coach is profound.

At the USSA, we encourage all coaches to start with some education.  USSA offers coaching clinics designed to give you a solid background in skiing and jumping skills, training and in teaching sport.

A USSA coach membership is recommended for coaches.  To become a USSA coach member:

  • Register on-line here
  • Complete a background screening (cost included in your membership dues)

Once you've completed your membership, we encourage you to pursue education in coaching through the USSA coaches certification program.  Join USSA Sport Education on Facebook or Twitter to stay connected.  Check out Center of Excellence TV, a fantastic video resource for coaches.  And take advantage of our coaching resources and get discounts with your membership at the USSA Education Shop.

To find a coaching job, contact your local ski areas or ski clubs, or some clubs post open coaching positions here.
