The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Western Region U14 Jr Championships is a championship event for U14s by Year of Birth only, from the five Divisions of the Western Region. Under no circumstance will a U12 by Year of Birth be eligible to participate. For U14 athletes to participate in the Far West selection procedures (California Challenge Series) they must hold a U14 Alpine Competitor Membership. Foreign Athletes
For “X” numbered athletes to participate in selection procedures they must hold a Far West Foreign U14 Alpine Competitor membership, petition to the U14 Age Class Chair and Far West ACC Chair prior to the first qualifying series event, and follow all Far West rules and regulations. A maximum of 2 “X” number per gender, will be allowed per season. Once the maximum number of X number athletes is selected, each consecutive X number athlete within the selection criteria will be skipped.
The quota is filled using “World Cup Points”, scored in the U14 Jr Championships qualifying, California Challenge Series. There are three weekends contesting SL, GS and SG. Each competitor’s top four WCP scores from the six qualifying races count, regardless of discipline. If any of the qualifiers are canceled, one half of the races are scored (odd numbers are rounded up). In special circumstances, a one run race may be scored for Jr Championship qualifying purposes, if approved by the team captains at the event. In the event of a tie, the athlete’s best result using WCPs is used even if that was previously applied in their original qualifying score.
Racer A: 100, 80,60,50,0
Racer B: 80, 80,80,50,0
In the example above both athletes have a best of 4 total of 290 points. Racer A would be the higher rank due to the higher WCP finish. If a tie still exists, the next athlete selected will be the racer with the next best WCP score and so on until the tie is broken in any of the U14 Series events.
Once finalized selections are announced, athletes will have 72 hours to respond and submit payment.
