State Championships: Each season, every ski team competes in six scheduled conference races, three giant slalom and three slalom. These six races determine which teams will move on to compete at the NJ State Championships at the end of the season. To qualify for States, a team must be above .500 mark at the end of the season. To qualify as a team, a team must have a minimum of 3 racers.
Scoring: Each team receives 1 point for each team it beats and 1 point for each team it loses to in a race. The first and second Giant Slalom and Slalom races are competed only against teams in the opposing conference. Points are not awarded against the teams within the same conference as Sparta. Only at the third race of each discipline will points be awarded against all teams competing including those within the same conference as Sparta. The third race is based on chronological order and will be the last race for each discipline.
Petro Qualifier: Operates as a GS tune up for those teams who have already qualified for the State Team Championship and also as a wild card qualifier for those trying to make it to the “Big Dance”. The girls and boys team who finishes first out of all teams that have not been admitted to states by their record will be granted admittance to states. Each team that is granted the wild card must have raced as a team in 3 out of the 6 league races.
