Rocky/Central U16 Junior Championship Selections

Central Division selections for the Rocky/Central U16 (YOB 03/04) Jr Championships

Selection rankings will be posted below

For the 2018-2019 season, the Central Division will hold 1 qualifying series for R1,2,3,4, for selections to the Rocky/Central Junior Championships, over a 3 day weekend. The series will consist of 2 GS and 2 SL USSS scored races. USSS points will seed athletes for these events. Athletes will be selected for the R/C Junior Championships by using the combined rankings from the best three of five rankings from 1 SG/2 GS/2 SL. Rankings for the 1 SG, will be determined by using the most current SG National Points List, at the time the qualifying series events begins. All rankings will be determined by using a modified World Cup Points (top 45).

If a race or day is cancelled, best 3 of 5 still applies. Best efforts to complete 1 GS and 1 SL race will take priority. 1 run races can not be used for ranking criteria.

Using the single best result will break ties. If a tie still exists, the next best result would be used, and this process will continue until the tie is broken. If a tie is still not broken, race points will be used in the same process. All eligible qualifying rankings will be considered for tie-breaking purposes.

Seeding to the U16 RC Junior Championships events in Colorado are based on National Points seeding. There is no protected seeding.

USSA members holding an X (foreign) license that are living & attending school in the USA and training and competing in the Central Division may qualify for the R/C Junior Championships within the Central quotas. Central will then have an additional 4 quota spots total (men & women each) for the qualified X licensees.

All eligible athletes must be full time members of the Central Division and their local Region
by January 31. The full time membership names and #’s are to be reported to the Central Manager who will share with the CASC executive committee by Feb 1.

Two discretion spots per gender will be held for consideration by the Central Development Committee (consisting of the Central Coaches Chair and the four Regional Coaches Chairs). Official requests will be due 24 hours after the completion of the qualifying series. The Central Development Committee will rule on those ASAP following the 24hr deadline and report those decisions to the Central Division Manager. If there are no requests, then the 2 discrection spots will move down the list to the next ranked athletes.

The Central Division Qualifying Championships will reserve a quota of 5m/5w for Canadian athletes. They will be eligible to race, and will be apart of each race results, but will be purged for qualifying considerations and rankings to the R/C Junior Championships.
