The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) announced Thursday (April 12) that longtime cross country coach and former racer Joey Caterinichio has been named the organization’s nordic program manager.
With the primary responsibility of serving as administrator for the cross country, nordic combined and ski jumping programs, Caterinichio will operate the nordic domestic system, manage internal projects and coordinate nordic sport committees. She comes from a long history of ski racing and coaching both international and domestic projects.
“I am thrilled to join the USSA staff,” said Caterinichio. “My goal is to complement the existing staff and awesome coaches who are doing an excellent job with our domestic and international programs, as well as continue to aid or implement quality programs, increase communications and quality racing opportunities for our entire nation to succeed at the highest levels. Current U.S. results are at an all-time best. What a great opportunity to join the USSA at this time.”
Caterinichio joins the team from a lineage of nordic racing and coaching, most recently coaching for Alaska Nordic Racing.
