2020/21 US National Team & Worlds Team Selection Process – CANCELED
Due to uncertainty in being able to hold safe and fair qualifying races, the USSMA has made the tough decision to NOT have a USNT for the 2020/21 season. This was a decision we didn’t take lightly and involved many hours of discussion and the input of many people, and with safety being the priority. Many races domestically and internationally are unknown at this time and travel anywhere is increasingly being limited. A USNT plan will be determined and communicated at a later date for the 2021/22 season.
Any athletes looking to race an ISMF sanctioned race (World Cups / World Championships), please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss obtaining an ISMF license.
Due to the lack of a USNT this year, the USSMA is working on a high performance training and education program / group, that will be available for interested competitive member athletes to sign up for. It will likely include periodic education meetings and/or presentations around training, nutrition, rules & regulations, anti doping, etc. The goal of this program is to keep interested athletes engaged, learning, building relationships and camaraderie, and continuing to progress as elite skimo racers. Stay tuned for more information, as we hope to roll this out before the beginning of the new year.
