New Athlete Information

Are you interested in joining the freeride movement, competing, and meeting an awesome community of like-minded shredders?  The IFSA is a great place to achieve your goals.

Launch into competitive big mountain freeride by registering as an IFSA member and then sign up for events in your region. When you register for an IFSA membership you will be given a membership ID which will allow you to collect points and earn rankings amongst athletes in your age group. To start collecting points and climbing the rankings, you must simply sign up and compete at regional and national events.

IFSA encourages riders to join big mountain teams or clubs in order to benefit from coaching and learn how to safely participate in freeride. IFSA considers safety to be a top priority, and joining a team or club will teach athletes invaluable skills and good judgement. You will also benefit from learning alongside riders that are competing or looking to compete at your level. If joining a team isn't feasible, which we completely understand, then simply sign up as "IFSA Independent" when registering. We do encourage independent athletes and parents to seek information about freeride safety and judging protocol. This information will help athletes make sound line choices with safety as a priority in competition and practice.
