The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has launched an online database application that was developed in partnership with Atos Origin. The application is called the IPC Sport Data Management System (SDMS). The general functionality of the online application includes the following:

  • Captures athlete biographies, eligibility data (nationality, classification, etc.), results, potential records;
  • Provides U.S. Paralympics with online reports and data for its respective athletes;
  • Calculates world and regional rankings, records and other reports (e.g. classification master lists)

For the current list of IPC licensed Snowboarders, please check the IPC Classification Masterlist

NOTE: Only licensed athletes will be eligible to have their results submitted for consideration on the IPC world and regional ranking lists as well as for world and regional record applications. Please note that athletes who are not licensed will not be eligible for the National Team nor will you be eligible to be classified at an IPC Event.The IPC license is valid from the time of application through the end of that season.  The license will expire at the end of the season (June 30th) and must be renewed each season

Snowboard athletes are required to have a current USASA membership before the IPC License can be renewed. This can be done through https://www.usasa.org/members/login

Athlete's who have been IPC licensed in previous years and need to renew the license, please complete the following:

The SDMS will issue a unique athlete identification number, which will remain with the athlete through his/her sport career.  Additionally, for each season the athlete will be assigned a unique season license number.  Please allow 48 hours for the license to be active on the IPC Masterlist.

The International Classification status will be listed as N (New) for athletes who have never completed an IPC International Classification evaluation. New athletes will be placed into the system as the highest number for the corresponding classification category. For example, an alpine skiing athlete with a spinal cord injury will be listed as a LW12 if they have never been through a classification. The classification number will be updated in the system along with the classification status after the athlete completes an approved National or International classification evaluation.

If you have any questions, please call or email Bryce Boarman at 719-866-4240 or Bryce.Boarman@usoc.org
