How To Qualify

How to qualify to compete in the 2018 Dion Snowshoes U.S. National Snowshoe Championships

1. An athlete must be a current member of the U.S. Snowshoe Association. The annual
membership fee is $30.00 and that includes a one year subscription to the Trail Runner
Magazine, among other benefits. Athletes must register for USSSA membership PRIOR to
competing in their regional qualifying event. Day of registration is permitted. Visit to learn how to register for membership. Or download a printable membership form HERE.

8. ALSO….the USSSA offers two other categories of participation at the National Snowshoe Championships. Active members of all branches of the U.S. Armed forces are invited to participate and compete in the All-Military Division of the Senior 10km event. These athletes DO NOT need to pre-qualify, since their active duty status may not allow the time to do so. UT, participants MUST BE current USSSA members. Individual and team awards are presented.

9. The USSSA also offers an International Division of competition in the Senior Men’s and
Women’s 10km events. Athletes who ARE NOT US citizens may compete for awards. These athletes DO NOT need to pre-qualify, BUT do need to be current USSSA members.
