Course Description:

The Alpine or Telemark Eastern Team tryout is a 2-day tryout for members who are interested in competing in the PSIA-AASI National Team Selection in 2024. The Eastern Team tryout is not an event where you come "see how you stack up" or come to "see what it is all about". You should have your mind made up that you are trying out for the PSIA-AASI National Team in 2024 prior to signing up for the Eastern Team tryout.

Becoming an Eastern team member is the first step on the path to being endorsed by the Eastern Region for National team. The National Team Selection is open to all Level III Certified Members. It is not currently a requirement to be on the Eastern Team to apply for National Team tryouts. However, being on the Eastern team will be a way to prepare for the process and start to organize the content needed for National Team tryouts, both on snow and off snow. Being a member of the Eastern Team will help an individual to have the opportunity to secure a Divisional Endorsement to attend the National Team Selection. Being an Eastern team member does not, however, guaranty an endorsement for all Eastern Team members. Eastern Team members earn their endorsement through their participation as a team member, as they prepare for the National Team Selection.
