US Eastern Regional High School Ski Championship

Attitash Mountain

The All-State team will be formed right after the ROC in the Vista room upstairs at Summit Lodge. Results will be tabulated (takes a while) and we will offer the top 12 in each gender.  If anyone says no, we will go down the list until our team is filled.  Sometimes we go down the list of a good bunch of athletes so if you want to attend, don't leave until you know the team is filled!!

Please fill in the Prospective ROC Athletes Form if you already know you would NOT attend if you got the invite, to make it easier to get our team together.  If you are uncertain, you have until the day of ROC to decide. You must bring a check in the amount necessary to attend race, and coaches fee, plus desired extras at the conclusion of race (see costs of race, coaches fee, jackets, lifts etc. below to know how much to write check out for.  We can also accept Zelle 908-963-8887 (NO Venmo or PayPal). You must know whether it's a yes or no right then and there and pay in full to hold your spot.  There is a tight window to pick our team, get accommodations (attached PDF), get team jackets and such, so we cannot wait for decisions.  Thanks for your understanding.  

NJISRA Race of Champions is scheduled for February 22nd, 2024 at Blue Mountain.  

Immediately following the race, NJISRA will choose an "NJISRA State Team" to attend High School Regional's at Attitash Mountain in New Hampshire.  The attachment at the bottom outlines dates and other very important info.  The top 12 NJISRA men and the top 12 women will have first choice to go and represent our state.  Some racers will not able to attend, and we will continue down the list until we fill 24 spots. These 24 racers will be selected as follows:

  • All NJISRA 2024 Conference race individual runs are scored to come up with Conference points (one run races are pro-rated). This score gets multiplied by 15%, and then added to the points earned in the ROC. The ROC shall be broken up into 4 separate runs which athletes can earn points. 2 runs of giant slalom and 2 runs of slalom.  Runs in ROC will be scored on a 30-1 basis with 30th place earning 1 point and first place earning 30 points.  Please see bylaws for further clarification.  
  • The NJISRA State team for regionals will be decided at Blue right after the Race of Champions.  Racers need to accept their invitation immediately after awards on site at Blue Mountain.  In other words, this decision needs to be discussed and made before the race. Anyone who is undecided will lose their spot and the next athlete will have an opportunity to accept. A check or Zelle for the race fee, coaches fee, optional jacket purchase will need to be made right after awards to hold your spot.  Racers name should be in payment notes. If no payment is received we will go down the list.
