Points and Rankings

The ability to measure one competitor's performance against another is the heart of competive athletics. In a country as large as the USA, it's improtant to have measurement tools to evaluate performance of skiers around the nation. Performance of USSA athletes is evaluated through various ranking lists. Athletes competing in scored competitions earn points, which are calculated mathematically to allow ranking lists to be developed. Ranking lists, in turn, are used by USSA for selection to teams, entry into higher level competitions and for development projects.

USSA Ranking Lists
USSA ranking lists utilize finishes from USSA scored competitions.
FIS Ranking Lists
FIS ranking lists utilize finishes from FIS competitions worldwide, including those in the USA. 

The USSA freestyle/freeskiing points system has been developed to provide a measurement tool for U.S. freestyle/freeskiing competitors. It is an important tool for personal evaluation and team selection at many levels. The Points and Ranking chapter of the USSA Freestyle/Freeskiing Competition Guide outlines the basics of the USSA Freestyle/Freeskiing points system (FFSP) and how you can use it as a tool to measure your performance.
