To: Darlene Nolting <>

Hi all – A note from Jon Nolting with USSA Coaches Education.  Please help pass this information to the parents in your club.  It should be very beneficial to them.




There are important web presentations in the next two weeks for parents of alpine racers as part of the Peak Conference Series. The first is a presentation on concussions by Kyle Wilkens, USSA Medical Director, next Tuesday at 2:00pm mountain time. This is of course targeted at coaches and clubs as well.

The alpine parent presentations will be held regionally, and cover common questions parents have about skiing time, competition, results and performance, equipment and more, and regional staff for Q&A down to the local level. Please help spread the word to your parents and club coaches.. As a reminder, the presentations will be recorded for those that cannot participate live, and they are at no cost, provided as a USSA member benefit.


Eastern parent presentation: January 16, 12:00pm EST

Western parent presentation: January 21, 12:00pm MST

Rocky/Central parent presentation: January 22, 11:00am MST
