Ten things that are new
March 2015
Updated: 2015-03-02

U18 Process below to

USSA Eastern Finals - at Gore March 14-17th 

FIS Eastern Finals - at Okemo March 8-12th

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.

• NYSSRA Championships - Check out your specific age group drop down on this NYSSRA Home Page for State Champs, Kandahar information, etc.

• Andrew Weibrecht, former NYSEF/NYSSRA Member Puts it Downhill at World Championships- 'Weibrecht was the last American down the hill, wearing bib 35, and stunned the crowd by posting the fastest splits at the top.' He earned his 9th place finish. We're all very proud of him.

(added Jan 6)  U18s Racing in U16 Cup Races - NYSSRA U18s are allowed to race in scored U16 cup races in 2015.  However, no U16 can be displaced from a race.  If a race becomes full, preference must go to the U16 athlete.  U18s will race under U16 rules, including the random seeding procedures established in the U16 section of the NYSSRA manual.  U18s will be awarded appropriately and taken out of results for qualification purposes.  NYS U16 State Championships are available ONLY to U16 athletes.
