MNC awarded Bronze Level Status by US Ski and Snowboard Podium Certification Program!


MNC has just received recognition as a Bronze Level program by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard’s Podium Club Certification Program. MNC is the ONLY Nordic-specific club in New England to achieve this status. Along with Loppet Nordic Racing in Minnesota, Mansfield Nordic is one of only TWO Nordic-specific clubs in the country to be awarded status from the U.S. Ski and Snowboard certification system.

Below follows a press release from U.S. Ski and Snowboard:

The Mansfield Nordic Club has recently been awarded Podium Certification at the Bronze level by U.S. Ski and Snowboard. U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Podium Club Certification Program requires a rigorous, mission driven self-assessment and review of best principles and practices in eight areas of organizational performance. The Mansfield Nordic Club has demonstrated appropriate levels of performance in all areas and is recognized as an important partner of U.S. Ski and Snowboard and a leader among ski and snowboard clubs in the nation.

Statements:
Ellen Adams, USSA Club Development Manager
The Certification process not only recognizes club excellence, but also gives a clear roadmap for all clubs to become stronger organizations. This is a strategic part of U.S. Ski and Snowboard’s plans to support clubs, be a more club-based organization and better understand the challenges and opportunities that exist for clubs in every corner of the country. The process to achieve Podium Level Certification requires a commitment to excellence on behalf of a club and its constituents, and clubs have reported finding great value in doing the work necessary to complete the certification. Many clubs have found that the most positive impact was not necessarily the certification designation, but, rather, in uncovering the true opportunities they have to improve and continue to deliver sustained excellence. These clubs all set great examples, and are leading the charge for club improvement nationally.
 
Luke Bodensteiner, USSA Executive Vice President of Athletics
Working in closer partnership with our member clubs to recognize excellence and create a platform for continued improvement is the new frontier for our organization. Our clubs are our sport’s biggest asset to athlete recruitment and development, and working hand-in-hand with them will enhance their levels of achievement and will transform the performance of our athletes and teams at all levels.
 
Jon Casson, USSA Sport Education Director
The USSA Club Certification program is a valuable resource for all our clubs.  Our clubs all are working hard to be the best they can be and give all of their athletes a great experience in skiing and snowboarding.  The Certification programs give our clubs the resources they need to assess and improve their structure and programs to meet their organizational goals and the goals of the thousands of U.S. Ski and Snowboard athletes across the US.
