Q. Boardercross (snowboardcross), How do I try it?

Q. Lauren,
I was just reading your webpage and came across some info on Snowboard Cross. I have been an avid snowboarder for years however, I never heard of snowboardcross until I saw it on the Olympics. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was something I wanted to get into, however, I have come up with nothing on how to get involved with this sport. Nothing on competitions, classes, or anything. As far as I can tell, this seems like a pretty big snowboard secret. Can you tell me how to get involved with this sport? Something in New England or New York would be preferable because I live in Castleton, Vermont.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Mike

A. Hi Mike,
Your question is good, and timely. For once I know the answer, without having to consult my team.


You can learn to compete in snowboard cross or boarder cross by joining USASA. I know because I competed with USASA last year and might try boardercross myself there this season.
The USA Snowboard Association, (USASA) is the largest grassroots snowboard competition organization in the world. It's like Little League, for snowboarders - of all ages. And it's FUN!!
Check out http://usasa.org/

Remember the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah? The athletes who swept the snowboarding events for the USA all got their start in the USASA!
USASA is a great way for amateur snowboarder's to learn how competitions run - because the pro competitions work the same way. I wrote about usasa last winter - more here.

See you out there!
Lauren
