We've compiled the results from the weekend.
On the sheet that is linked below:
There are many tabs across the bottom. Be sure to use the small arrows on the bottom to scroll over to find all the tabs. Do Not hit the PLUS SIGN (+)
For Kandahar Championships - Athletes highlighted in green are qualified to Kandahar Championships. There is no need to confirm on decline. We assume everyone will be going (Piche athletes see below)
The Piche Qualified sheet includes all atheltes who have qualified for Piche.. These athletes have a choice of attending either Piche or Kandahar Championships. If athletes accept their spots to Piche, we will add additional athletes on the corresponding sheet to Kandahar Championships. Athletes who are just below the group of highlighted athletes should check back on Tuesday afternoon to see if there have been changes.
Piche Qualified Athletes. U12's who won a run (4 possible chances) or U14's who won a Race (2 possible chances) You must Confirm or Decline your spot to Piche by MONDAY, MARCH 13 at 9PM. Before confirming you should check with your coach. NYSSRA will not have any representation at Piche and you must have a qualified coach represent you at the event.
U10's to Kandahar Championships - the first tab is a list of U10's who had at least 2 top 15 results in the overall of a run. (4 possible chances). These athletes are invited to Kandahar Championships. No need to confirm, we assure they are going.
On the Confirmation Sheet:
Use the bright pink column to select either Confirm or Decline using the small down arrow.
NOTE: If athletes appear on both lists, they must choose one or the other. They cannot do both. For this reason Alternates should confirm also because we do not know where athletes will choose. Alternates who wish to be considered for these projects MUST confirm also so we can adjust as necessary after tomorrow night.
Left side shows athletes who have qualified for the U12 SL Camps (2006 YOB only). The Eastern Camp is at West Mountain and the Western Camp is at Holimont. March 31-April 1. The east camp is listed first, then the west camp below. Be sure to scroll down to see all the groups.
These projects are SL specific and are designed to teach second year U12 athletes proper tall pole SL technique which they will experience when they begin racing as a U14.
The Right side shows athletes who have qualified for the U12 Future Stars at Gore, March 24-25. This includes all U12 athletes and is the only option for 2007 YOB athletes.

Quotas for State Championships. Based on NYSSRA membership data as of Jan. 20.
Girls 39 35
Boys 35 31
Total quota is 140
NOTES: Please Read
Rankings are based on simple place points. 1st = 1 point, 2nd = 2 points, etc.....
Each run and the combined time each count as a race. If an athlete completes both runs of a SL or GS they will have 3 results. If they only complete one run, they will only have one result for that day. SG only has one run therefore one result.
An athlete's 5 best results (out of possible 13) will be used to determine who qualifies for State Championships.
Ties have been broken.
If you see #NUM! in the Best 5 column this is because the athlete does not have 5 results.
An athlete must have at least 5 results to qualify for the U14 State Championships.
Athlete names highlited in Green have qualified for NYSSRA U14 State Championships.
Athelte names highlighted in Orange are alternates.
Any athlete who has qualifed for State championships and chooses to withdraw and race in the Kandahar Festivals and possibly qualify for Kandahar Championships or Piche must notify NYSSRA Program Director by Wednesday, Feb. 14 at the latest so we can name alternates. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
