Women’s Ski Jumping USA (WSJ-USA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was incorporated in 2003 in Park City, Utah. The organization was created to support the increasing number of elite U.S. women ski jumpers who need financial support and strong leadership to get them into the international fold and on sport's biggest stage―the Olympic Games.

Our mission is to support and run a successful and sustainable team and to grow participation in the U.S. women's ski jumping program by facilitating national development efforts that produce the best women ski jumpers in the world. WSJ-USA aims to remain an influential voice in advocating for gender equality in sport.

Women’s Ski Jumping USA runs the U.S. national team―officially called the VISA Women's Ski Jumping Team―and finances the team's coaching, travel, training, equipment. In addition, the organization administers a junior development program, known as the Fly Girls program. Over the past decade, WSJ-USA has proudly supported the VISA Women's Ski Jumping Team to back-to-back Nations Cup victories in 2012 and 2013, and has fostered the careers of World Champions Lindsey Van and Sarah Hendrickson.

We are honored and grateful to have the support of our sponsor, Visa. Today, Visa is matching your Live PC Give PC donations to Women's Ski Jumping USA.

On April 6, 2011, after a lengthy fight, which included a legal battle, the IOC finally announced that a women’s ski jumping event would be added to the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games program. The women currently have one event — normal hill competition, while the men have three events (normal hill, large hill, and team competition). WSJ-USA leaders continue to lobby to reach parity in ski jumping in the Winter Games.

Jessica Jerome, Sarah Hendrickson, and Lindsey Van participated in the inaugural women’s ski jumping event in Sochi, Russia at the 2014 Olympics, placing 10th, 21st, and 15th respectively. These women, along with their team-mates, persevered to make history!

Together with your support, and the support of our sponsor, Visa, these athletes will continue to FLY!
