Rocky/Central U16 Junior Championship Selections

Central Division selections for the Rocky/Central U16 Jr Championships

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Central Division has a quota of 50 athletes to the R/C U16 Junior Championships. For the 2021-2022 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 at the Central Division Bob Hosking U16 Championships. The series will run from Friday through Sunday. Races will include 1 SG, 2 GS, 2 SL races. The best 3 of 5 races will count to overall scoring. World Cup point scoring down to 60 athletes will be used to rank athletes. First tier of 25 athletes will qualify for Rocky/Central Jr. Championship, Steamboat, Colorado March 7th-11th.

A second tier of 20 athletes per gender will qualify for secondary Rocky/Central Jr. event in Crested Butte, Colorado March 3rd-6th, 2022. (SG Tr 3rd, SG 4th, GS 5th, SL 6th.)  Athletes can move up a tier, but cannot drop down.  The series will consist of 1 SG, 2 GS and 2 SL National scored races. National points will seed athletes for these events. 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, and using a double blind selection board. All rankings will be determined by using a modified World Cup Points (top 60). Rocky Central SYNC Junior Championship Jackets will be available for purchase for both events.

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 for RC U16 Jr Championships will be as follows:

  1. The first seed of 15 will be determined based on national points and shall be randomly drawn.

  2. A special seed will follow the first seed such that each division’s top eight nationally ranked skiers will be within the first seed or the special seed. If either division does not have at least eight skiers in the first seed, then its remaining top eight ranked skiers will start in the special seed, in national point order. For example, if there are 8 Central athletes and 7 RMD athletes in the first seed of 15, there would be 1 RMD athlete in the special seed. Or, 10 RMD athletes and 5 Central athletes in the first seed, there would be 3 Central athletes in the special seed.

  3. The remainder of the field will be seeded by national points following the special seed.

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 discretion 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.

Please contact Patrick ASAP if you are attending these events but do not plan on going to Colorado

The Foreign athlete will be seeded based on his/her location on the Regional qualification list.
