Rules and Procedures

NEW for 2021-2022 season.  Updated as of 9/23/2021.

Alaska Division requires proof of COVID vaccination for coaches and athletes (12 years of age and over) who are traveling as a team, out of the Alaska Division, on an Alaska Division trip.   Proof of vaccination records should be sent to and will kept on file for the 2021-2022 season. 

This does not pertain to athletes traveling independently.  Athletes traveling independently will need to remain distanced from the travel team at the venue, except for on the hill or outdoors.  This is to ensure that the traveling team can maintain their bubble.

Coaches Level 100 On-Snow Clinic

  • We need to have dates set for the clinic trainer to come up so please fill the form as soon as possible.
  • The online portion of the course (the level 100 portfolio) needs to be preferably completed before the on-snow clinic.
  • If coaches demonstrate competence and are working as coaches all season, they can access the level 200 right away in the spring without waiting for another season to do the next coaching education step.

NOTE:  All coaches need to be certified at least at a level 100 by 2022.
