Attention all parents of skimo athletes 16 and younger!

New for the 2021/2022 season, USA Skimo is excited to announce a new youth development program (Devos) focused on providing more resources, coaching, and age group divisions to skimo athletes 16 and under. By joining the program, you show your interest, support, and commitment to age group skimo racing in the United States.

2019/2020 National Team member and Silverfork Skimo Coach, Sarah Cookler, is leading the youth development program. In the inaugural 2021-2022 season, the program’s top priority is adding under 14 (U14) and under 16 (U16) youth age divisions to USA Skimo-sanctioned races and the National Cup Series. The program also intends to facilitate community communication channels, race meet-ups and options to purchase race suits, jackets, and hats.

USA Skimo youth divisions are now officially included in the USA Skimo National Cup Race Series, where national rankings are based on cumulative points at designated USA Skimo-sanctioned races.

This program is welcome to all age-eligible USA Skimo members and strives to be inclusive and welcoming to provide recognition to top youth racers, and be a source for ongoing engagement and communication.

Sign up now to join the Devo program! . All we need from you is commitment, engagement, and participation. You will need your membership number and email address to join. Once you’ve joined, we will add you to the USSMA Devo Slack channel where you can meet other youth skimo enthusiasts and get the latest information about meetups, races, and the skimo community.

Thank you for your interest in age group skimo racing!
