Central Collegiate Ski Association CFIS

The Central Collegiate Ski Association (CCSA) is the premier collegiate cross country skiing conference in the United States, consistently producing podium finishes at both the U.S. National Championships as well as the NCAA National Championships.

CCSA competitors race head-to-head with some of the best skiers in North America, as the CCSA's NCAA qualifying events are often combined with SuperTour events. The season culminates with the CCSA Regional Championships in mid-February. The top ranked individuals from the CFIS point lists compete in the NCAA National Championships in March.
