U16

U-16 competition (YOB 1999 and 2000) is seen as the transitional step between children’s racing and seeded competition. U-16 athletes who wish to earn points in the USSA points system – or advance to state championships or eastern region events -  must be Competitor Members with USSA.
The Eastern U-16 Finals and U-16 Eastern Championships are major season long goals.  These will lead to further high level racing at the U-16 Can Am event where selected racers will compete against athletes from Alpine Quebec and Alpine Ontario.
USSA will also be holding a U-16 Assessment project  in late March, early April.
