    Billy and team USA Nordic,
    I applaud the leadership, collaboration and resulting decision to merge wsjusa into USA Nordic. Well done.

    I’m interested in the specific goals of the organization.
    Specifically, we need the right fundraising expertise to help the best athletes graduate from club teams to national camps to international comps.
    We need to engage Mr. Shaw at every opportunity to get USSA support and help him understand how a united ski team across all ski disciplines aligns with USSA values, messaging and corporate donor opprortunities. There are stories of grit, determination, and athletic achievement beyond alpine skiing that will resonate with Olympic audiences.
    We need to continue fly girls and similar youth development programs.
    We need coaching, fitness and wellness expertise to flow down from World Cup level to the club level. The club coaches may have the best of intentions, but the development programs must be science based. No over training!
    Friday afternoon school programs in every snow town.
    Again, I’m excited about the future of Nordic skiing!

    Good luck ladies. When I was jumping years and years ago, no one ever thought that women would/could jump. Yea for title 9!
