USASA Scholarship award renamed The Chuck Allen Scholarship Award


(South Lake Tahoe, CA 3/2/11) The United States of America Snowboard Association (USASA) is renaming its annual scholarship program “The Chuck Allen Scholarship Award.” Our Founder and dear friend, Chuck Allen, passed away Feb. 14, 2011 so to honor Chuck and his dedication to the USASA and the sport of snowboarding, the USASA and Chuck’s family will proudly remember Chuck through the USASA Chuck Allen Scholarship Award.

Each year USASA members who qualify for the National Championships can apply for The Chuck Allen Scholarship by completing the application requirements. The applicants are evaluated for various criteria including transcripts, letters of recommendation, and snowboarding results.


Linda "Zippy" Neil is the new Executive Assistant

After years of tireless work and commitment to the USASA, Karen Mertl has retired as the Administrative Assistant. With the rapid growth of the USASA it was time to expand the job duties and time commitment to keep up with the demands of the organization. Karen was a huge part of the USASA family and her daily involovement will be missed. She will continue to run the North Tahoe Series with her husband and will most likely still be a staff member at Nationals.
