The selection criteria came from the end of year Championships to consist of 10 1st Year U14's for each gender and 15 2nd Year U14's for each gender.  These are invitations and not slots.  If a racer opts out, the next alternate in the same year and gender will be selected.

Additionally, each region, i.e., Eastern Massachusetts, Western Massachusetts, and Connecticut Youth Ski League has 6 discretionary slots, divided evenly for 3 boys and 3 girls.  These discretionary slots included both 1st and 2nd year U14's for the 2018 race season.
