How To Qualify For Nationals

 

Requirements

  • 2016 Nationals Overall & Discipline Champions are automatically “pre-qualified” for the 2017 National Championships. These champions must be current USASA members in good standing by March 1, 2017.
  • Earning the top overall points in your age division for a single discipline qualifies an athlete for the National Championships in that discipline. This means an athlete can qualify for the National Championships in a single discipline such as Halfpipe, Slopestyle, Rail Jam, Giant Slalom, Slalom, Boardercross or Skiercross, as well as any combinations of disciplines that an athlete has earned the overall points leader status. Overall points will be determined as follows:                                                                               
    • Boardercross/Skiercross – Best 4 scores from CMS events
    • Giant Slalom – Best 4 scores from CMS events
    • Rail Jam – Best 4 scores from CMS events
    • Slalom – Best 4 scores from CMS events
    • Slopestyle – Best 4 scores from CMS events 
    • Halfpipe - Best 2 scores from CMS events                                                                                                                              
  • In the event the top overall finisher is unable to attend, the second place finisher will qualify.

  • The remaining National Championship spots will be awarded based on the National Ranking System. National Ranking scores will consist of the athlete’s best 3 scores from any 2016-2017 USASA event earned at any time in any series or the previous year’s National Championships.
