    Cutoff Date: 03/08/2020 / Resort Fee: $10.00 Link: https://groups.mammothmountain.com/mammothresort/rlp/WesternRegionU14Cha...

Selection Procedures:
The quota is filled using “World Cup Points” (WCP) (see Rules Governing Far West Competitors Section of this document), 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, then three count from five, three from four, two from two and one from one count. 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.
Example:
            Racer A: 100, 80,60,50,50
            Racer B: 80, 80,80,50,50
In the example above both athletes have a best of 5 total of 340 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.

Travel and Payment regulations for U14 Jr Championships

  1. All athletes, including alternates, must respond by the prescribed deadline listed at www.fwskiing.org. There will be a 72-hour response window. Payment in full will be due at this time.
  2. An alternative housing agreement must be on file in order for an athlete to stay with parents instead of the team. For Championships held in Alaska an athlete may not opt out of the team travel program. During the 2020 Championships at Mammoth the MMST athletes will not have to fill out an alternative housing agreement to stay at their home. All athletes will still be required to attend team meetings as scheduled. If a MMST athlete does want to participate in the FW Lodging package please notify the FW office upon qualifying for the Regional Championships.
  3. Refunds for U14 Jr Champs will be made only for recoverable costs, and on a case by case basis.

  2. Racers ranked by their U.S. Ski & Snowboard points, from points list #15, for the discipline (30%)

  4. In the event of a seeding tie this will be broken by the athlete with the higher WCP rank from the U14 Jr Champs Qualifying list (#1 listed above)

Once finalized selections are announced, athletes will have 72 hours to respond and submit payment.
