PARK CITY, UT (May 1) - The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and FLY Freestyle have launched a search for the next generation of freestyle talent. Acrobatic athletes ages 14-19 are invited to participate in the Elite Aerial Development Program (EADP) in Lake Placid, NY, or the Western Development Aerial Program FLY Freestyle in Park City, UT. Athletes ages 13 and under are also encouraged to apply so coaches may consider them for next year’s camps. Athletes interested in applying for aerials tryout camps can submit their videos here. Selection will be based on votes, ratings and coach’s discretion.
