State Championships: This season, every ski team will compete in five scheduled conference races, two slalom and three giant slalom. These five 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 .?00 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. With the exception to the first slalom and the (tbd), 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 first slalom and (tba) will points be awarded against all teams competing including those within the same conference as Sparta. Not applicable this season -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 top two girls and boys team who finishes first and second 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 5 league races.
