INDIVIDUAL RACER RANKING Methods-

Each racer’s results, during the CYSL Race Series, are recorded and used to determine their ranking within CYSL.  Ranking is done to determine who is eligible to attend the Post-Season Races in TriState, and also to select Team CT, for the Piche Invitational at Gunstock, NH. 

Each individual run, in a CYSL race, is tracked separately and the best three individual run results are used to determine the racer’s standing.  Three runs = one less than half the total race runs in the qualifying season.  The number of U14 TriState Quota Spots, allotted to CYSL, is based on the percentage of racers from each region of TriState (determined as of December 31)  The more CYSL registrants as of December 31, the more spots will be reserved for CYSL racers at the championships.   All U12 racers are invited to attend the U12 Championships, at Sundown and Mt. Southington, February 29-March 1, 2020.
