Skiwerx Series 2015-16
The Skiwerx Series presented by Fast Wax features 8 Twin Cities metro area races throughout the ski season. The Skiwerx Series finishes with the Midwest Junior Championships, a two-day festival just for kids. Starred events are also part of the CXC Youth Cup.
The CXC Youth Cup Schedule and Rules:
Q: Are there different rules for the Skiwerx Series and CXC Youth Cup?
A: Yes, the rules vary slightly, so please read the relevant information. The Skiwerx Series is intended to be focused more locally in the metro and as an easier introduction (for parents and skiers) to racing. The CXC Youth Cup is regional and requires some travel. One big differnece is that the Skiwerx Series includes the U10 age group.
Q: How many races count for points:
A: Five races for U14 and Four races for U12 in the CXC Youth Cup. For the Skiwerx Series, the best four races are scored for all age groups (U14, U12 and U10).
Q: Can my child race up an age group?
A: To participate in the CXC Youth Cup or Skiwerx Series, skiers have to race in their age group (determined by year of birth). We need all skiers to feel comfortable in their age group, whether they are role models or looking up to role models.
Q: Do I need a license number to register for events?
A: No, there are no license/membership numbers. We track kids through our database.
