The new PSIA-AASI National Team will set the standard for snowsports instruction and embody the ski and snowboard experience. PSIA-AASI hand-selected the 37 team members – 8 coaches chosen last season and 29 team members named today – for their range of skills that allow them to serve as inspirational leaders and build enthusiasm for learning and having fun skiing and riding.
“I’d like to congratulate all of our members who participated in Team Selection, and to the 2021-24 National Team that will lead PSIA-AASI into the future,” said PSIA-AASI Chief Executive Officer Nicholas Herrin. “Our association is constantly evolving to support our members’ educational goals, and best serve guests by delivering exceptional learning experiences. I am thrilled to work with these team members as they grow enthusiasm for our profession and inspire all skiers and riders to take their skills to the next level.”
How the Team Supports Members
Under the direction of Team Coach Jeb Boyd and discipline coaches, Geoff Krill (adaptive), Michael Rogan (alpine), Matt Boyd (alpine assistant coach), Emily Lovett (cross country), Eric Rolls (snowboard), Tony Macri (snowboard assistant coach), and Gregory Dixon (telemark), the PSIA-AASI National Team members will be instrumental in charting the course of snowsports instruction in the United States. Chief among their duties will be working with ski and ride schools throughout the country, conducting clinics, and representing PSIA-AASI as the public face of the organization.
“The PSIA-AASI National Team represents our association at the highest level,” said Team Coach Jeb Boyd. “The job of the team member is to bring people together and meet the needs of our membership and resort partners. Team members work together to assist PSIA-AASI in developing and promoting educational material, programs, and activities as well as work to provide consistency for our certification standards across all eight divisions.”
Team members have many responsibilities and even more opportunities. Based on the needs of the association, team member responsibilities are to provide education support to PSIA-AASI divisions, support PSIA-AASI marketing and public awareness activities, participate in PSIA-AASI member communications, participate in national events (i.e., PSIA-AASI National Academy), support PSIA-AASI Official Suppliers, and represent PSIA-AASI at select international events. The 2021-24 team will serve a three-year term.
