MJC Results and Final MNYSS points posted below.
It's our third year sponsoring the MNYSS. This series emphasizes fun while introducing kids to racing. Do one, do them all, bring your friends. Entry fees and distances vary. Some races require pre-registration and some only have same-day registration.
J5, J4 and J3 racers earn series points with year-end awards for the top three in each division. Kids who complete three races will get a certificate. Certificates will be available at Midwest Junior Championships.
IMPORTANT: Age groups are based on the skier's age on December 31, 2011.
5 and under
POINTS SYSTEM: Series awards for J3/J4/J5 will be calculated as 1st Place (200 pts), 2nd Place (195 points), 3rd Place (190 points) by age group and gender. A racer's FOUR best results will count toward the series. If a child races out of their age group, they don't receive points.
