US Ski & Snowboard Podium Club Program
Podium Level Club Certification is a reflective, mission-driven process designed for clubs that want to perform a comprehensive organizational assessment in order to verify and demonstrate their understanding of the best principles and implementation of best practices. The process is a partnership between U.S. Ski & Snowboard and the individual club, supported by education and resources, and culminates with a club interview (bronze level candidates) or club visit (silver/gold level candidates).
U.S. Ski & Snowboard Podium Certified Clubs are expected to engage in a continuous process of self-assessment, reflection and on-going improvement that enables them to stay relevant to their missions and to the athletes and families they serve. Clubs demonstrate this commitment by working continuously to improve their programs, actively participating in professional development opportunities and pursuing and maintaining certification.
If any club is interested in learning more or having a US Ski & Snowboard staff member visit Alaska and provide a club certification clinic, please reach out to Natalie Osborne, 907 223 0858 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to setup a clinic.
