The following list is a nation-wide look at the U.S. Ski Team’s Level 100 technique clinics offered for the 2009 season. All clinics are taught by U.S. Ski Team coaches or USSA-trained instructors. Participation in a Level 100 technique clinic satisfies one of several basic criteria established for a USSA coach to become certified at the 100 level. See the following link for details. Clinics are offered for all coaching levels, regardless of whether or not Level 100 certification is a priority. http://www.ussa.org/magnoliaPublic/ussa/en/formembers/athletes/education.html?tab=xc
