New this season in the Central Division to qualify for the RC U16 Championships

The Central Division will hold 2 qualifying series. As approved at the 2014 Fall CASC meetings: Region 1 (R1) will have a qualifying series and Region 2,3,4 (R234) will have a qualifying series for selections to the Rocky/Central Junior Championships (RCJC). Thus the division will have 2 qualifying series in the Division – (R1, R234). The series should be held over at least 2 weekends (2 3 day weekends preferred).  Each series will host 2 SG, 2 GS and 2 SL USSA scored races. USSA points will seed athletes. Athletes will be selected for the RC Regional Championships by using the best three of six U16 results from 2SG/2GS/2SL races (only one of the SG’s may count).  Rankings per race will be determined by using World Cup points (top 30) in each USSA scored race. 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. 

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 championships within the quotas. Central will then have an additional 4 quota spots total (men & women) for the qualified X licensees. These X athletes are now eligible for the U16 National Championships within the RC quota.

See the Region 1 website for details on that series: 

The Region 234 (R234) series will comprise of the Shelly Glover weekend (Jan 16-18) and the Central Jr Championships Feb 20-22. Each 3 day weekend will hold a SG, GS and SL scored race for U16 qualifiing. Awards will be given each day. One run of slalom will also be held in conjunction with the SG race to score Alpine Combined awards. However, only the SG portion of the Alpine Combined may count for RC U16 qualifying. 

Eligible athletes must be full time members of the Central Division and their local Region by the first Monday following the 1st weekend of January, (this season January 5, 2015).  The full time memberships and #’s are to be reported to the Central Manager who will share with the CASC executive committee by Tuesday, (January 6, 2015) for quota allocations to the 2 series. 

Each series will hold 2 discretion spots per gender. The central coaches committee will consider discretion requests and will rule on those ASAP following the final series race. If there are no requests then the 2 discetion spots will move down the list to the next ranked athletes. 

Central Division U16 Quota = 90

Central Automatics (2) - Katie Vesterstein and Sarah Rowe (NTG European training project)
Region 1 (R1) total quota (48 - 4 discretion = 44) men quota = 24 (+2), women quota = 20 (+2)
