Effective October 2008, the USSA will launch the first level of a multi-level cross country-specific Coaches Education Certification System. The curriculum is based on up-to-date practices used by the U.S. Ski Team in the quest for Olympic medals. The course materials come directly from the Team’s coaches and several of their key partners. Instructors will be trained and certified by the U.S. Ski Team. The rollout of the certification system will occur throughout the next several seasons, and once completely launched, course content will continue to evolve with the sport.
