Competitive Age Categories

Your competitive age category is based on how old you are as of December 31st in the current competitive season. For example, in 2013 – 2014 your age as of December 31, 2013 is your age for the entire 2013 – 2014 competitive season. Our Competition Model makes it possible for young skiers to compete in categories that are a better match for their development age if not their chronological age. For example, a Midget aged skier may race as a Juvenile whenever the athlete, their parents and coach together determine that to be the most appropriate competitive category. Skiers wanting to race in a category other than their competitive age category must notify Ron Pelletier, the competition secretary by e-mail by Dec. 16th at midnight.
