This year NYSSRA has a state quota for entry to FIS Development Races only. Our quota is 3 for each Development Race. THESE SPOTS ARE FOR ATHELTES WITH USA FIS LICENSES ONLY. ATHELTES WITH CANADIAN OR OTHER FOREIGN FIS LICENSES MUST ENTER VIA THEIR HOME FEDERATION.
To apply for these NYSSRA Quota spots the athlete Coach must complete a form for any race below. BEFORE applying for these spots, the coach or parent must also enter the athlete into the race waitlist at www.skireg.com (requires a credit card which will be charged if an athlete gets in the race) An athlete who has not entered at skireg.com will not be considered for a NYSSRA spot. If we receive more requests than avalable spots, selections will be done using USSA points in the events being contested. For single discipline events we will use the most current USSA points list for that discipline when entries are due. For multi-discipline events we will use an NTSM of USSA points for the events being contested.
After entering an athlete at skireg.com, it is possible to see where the athlete ranks for that race and if the athlete will get in the race under the regular selection system.
