If you're a high school-age NASTAR racer, you may be asking yourself how you might ski in college. And the answer just might be USCSA.
The United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association, or USCSA, has several divisions. The MacConnell Division is part of the Eastern USCSA conference. Schools such as Brown University opt to have their teams in this division instead of EISA, creating the chance for athletes to attend top colleges without the pressure of NCAA racing. The MacConnell Division also runs FIS and USSA races as part of its regular schedule.
SkiRacing.com traveled to a recent MacConnell Division race at Pat’s Peak in New Hampshire to ask athletes and coaches about what it’s like to race USCSA and what makes the division a great option for college athletics.
