Formed in 2000
ASSA is a proud member of the International Federation of Sleddog Sports (IFSS)
The IFSS provides the foundation on which our rules were shaped. The IFSS is a large group of international organisations contributing to sled dog sports on snow and dryland events. Their members meet regularly to deliver this on an educational, scientific, or technical level.
One of IFSS main goals of foundation was to lift Sled Dog Sports to an Olympic level, which they continue to do so working with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
