NSSA To Hold Individual Nationals

By Scott N. Atkinson | July 01, 2020, 9:17 a.m. (ET)

Molly Schaefer, 2019 national swivel championThe National Show Ski Association’s board of directors voted on June 29 to cancel Division 1 and Division 2 team nationals and instead hold a consolidated individual show ski nationals event. Following a difficult and thoughtful process, the NSSA Covid-19 Ad Hoc Committee brought this proposal before the NSSA board and it passed resoundingly. The committee priorities used to come to this conclusion were: 1.) safety first, 2.) provide opportunity, 3.) sport-guided decision making. This continues to be a fluid situation and further refinements are possible but currently the tournament details are as follows.

Important Note Regarding Spectator Capacity At NSSA Nationals

Due to the large number of entries on the first day of the Indmar 2020 Show Ski Nationals, Presented by Visit Central Florida, on Saturday, Aug. 8, and the limited spectator capacity of 225 as dictated by the City of Janesville and Rock County, the host Rock Aqua Jays will be doing everything in their power to follow the mandates handed down to them regarding safety and maximum capacity. As a result, spectators should NOT automatically expect entry at this time. 

The Rock Aqua Jays are formulating a pre-registration ticketing plan that will be finalized in the coming days and communicated to all. The event will be available for viewing via webcast and spectators are encouraged to utilize that option if attendance at the event is not an option due to limited capacity. 

Thank you for understanding and please watch for updates from the Rock Aqua Jays and the National Show Ski Association about the pre-registration ticketing process.
