Explanation of new method to confirm athletes for 2015 Eastern Regional USSA/FIS Finals.Like the ESWG, we’ll be using a new method to confirm athletes for the 2015 Eastern FIS Finals and the 2015 Eastern USSA Finals. The method uses the Google Doc links below and is nearly identical to the one Patti Nichols uses with the USSA Eastern office. The deadline for confirmation is Tuesday, March 3rd at 9pm EST. Coaches: please follow these directions to Confirm or Pull your athletes. If your athlete is not confirmed by the deadline, they will NOT be allowed to register and race in the event. Reminder: athletes that qualify to both series may participate in only one series, not both.
Below are two links to where you will confirm or pull your athletes. In the blue columns, select either “Confirm” or “Pull” from the drop down menu, type your name in the next column, and finally your email in the next column. (You can write a short comment if you want us to know something in the column to the right of the blue columns such as “GS and SL only” for tech only, or “FIS first choice” or “USSA first choice” with the athlete’s preference if qualified to both series) Note: please confirm/pull as early as possible even if you are not sure if they will qualify to the series.
At the time of deadline, the final quota will be determined and those athletes above the green line that have confirmed will be added to the quota. The final quota will be posted to this site shortly after the confirmation deadline.
