NSSA Update From President Doug Ribley

I hope you all had an enjoyable Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. With all that's going on in the world, it couldn't be more appropriate or important to honor those men and women in the United States Military who lost their lives defending our freedom. Over the weekend, there were some new developments for the sport of show skiing. Both the Midwest Region and Wisconsin State made very difficult decisions to cancel the team competition of their Regional/State Tournaments. The NSSA recognizes and respects individual, team and region/state decisions that are intended to ensure for the safety of their constituents. The difficulty of these decisions for all sports, including show skiing, is understood and our complete support and empathy should be first-and-foremost as we rely on unique priorities and considerations to help us maneuvering through this pandemic.
