I was landing on runway 23 at lawrence with a crosswind. My right wing was dipped into the wind and I put in adequate rudder to align the plane with the runway centerline. My airspeed was about 70 KTS on the approach. I flared at the proper time and my right wheel touched down then the left followed by the nose. After the nose wheel touched down I then started to skid/slide across the runway at which time I pointed the nose into the direction of the skid, in fear of flipping the plane. Then I maneuvered the plane into the grass, bringing the plane to a full stop. I believe that I need additional training in the crosswind landing with my instructor. Supplemental information from acn 200567. At the time of the incident the conditions on the field were as follows: 20000 ft sct 10 mi winds 270 at 10 KTS, runway 23. It is the instructor's belief that the student should have initiated a go around procedure as the landing deteriorated, but did not. It is the instructor's firm belief that the student needs to have additional training in the aforementioned areas, and cannot solo until that training has been satisfactorily completed.

Title: SPI IN SMA EXPERIENCES RWY EXCURSION WITH A LIGHT SURFACE WIND CONDITION.
Narrative: I WAS LNDG ON RWY 23 AT LAWRENCE WITH A XWIND. MY R WING WAS DIPPED INTO THE WIND AND I PUT IN ADEQUATE RUDDER TO ALIGN THE PLANE WITH THE RWY CENTERLINE. MY AIRSPD WAS ABOUT 70 KTS ON THE APCH. I FLARED AT THE PROPER TIME AND MY R WHEEL TOUCHED DOWN THEN THE L FOLLOWED BY THE NOSE. AFTER THE NOSE WHEEL TOUCHED DOWN I THEN STARTED TO SKID/SLIDE ACROSS THE RWY AT WHICH TIME I POINTED THE NOSE INTO THE DIRECTION OF THE SKID, IN FEAR OF FLIPPING THE PLANE. THEN I MANEUVERED THE PLANE INTO THE GRASS, BRINGING THE PLANE TO A FULL STOP. I BELIEVE THAT I NEED ADDITIONAL TRAINING IN THE XWIND LNDG WITH MY INSTRUCTOR. SUPPLEMENTAL INFO FROM ACN 200567. AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT THE CONDITIONS ON THE FIELD WERE AS FOLLOWS: 20000 FT SCT 10 MI WINDS 270 AT 10 KTS, RWY 23. IT IS THE INSTRUCTOR'S BELIEF THAT THE STUDENT SHOULD HAVE INITIATED A GAR PROC AS THE LNDG DETERIORATED, BUT DID NOT. IT IS THE INSTRUCTOR'S FIRM BELIEF THAT THE STUDENT NEEDS TO HAVE ADDITIONAL TRAINING IN THE AFOREMENTIONED AREAS, AND CANNOT SOLO UNTIL THAT TRAINING HAS BEEN SATISFACTORILY COMPLETED.
