"The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding. It is the parent organization of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing. Developed to facilitate participation in national and international competition, the Olympic sports organization provides structure for competitive skiing and snowboarding. From grassroots programs to governance of sport, management of rules, competitions and athletic rankings, the USSA oversees athletic pipelines for development in the sports."
- The International Ski Federation (FIS) is the governing body for skiing and snowboarding, instituting international competition rules. FIS carries out the technical organization of six snow sport disciplines at the Olympic games as well as top-level competitions. The FIS aims to reduce serious injuries to the athletes, enforce a no-tolerance policy against doping, and ensure sustainability of skiing through policies limiting damage to the environment. The FIS Rules of Conduct are recognized worldwide as the "laws of conduct on the pistes." These include:
- • Act responsibly
- • Show respect
- • Be professional
- • Cooperate with others
- • Apply ethical values
- • Communicate clearly and frequently
- • Look to the future
Our sponsors are an integral part of the team. Their support makes it possible for us to provide local athletes with the skills necessary for them to reach their full potential. We are the only alpine race team in the Western Black Hills, and are proud to provide a pathway for young skiers to compete on a national level and possibly even an international level.
