Points and Ranking
The ability to measure one competitor's performance against another is the heart of competive athletics. In a country as large as the USA, it's improtant to have measurement tools to evaluate performance of skiers around the nation. Performance of USSA athletes is evaluated through various ranking lists. Athletes competing in scored competitions earn points, which are calculated mathematically to allow ranking lists to be developed. Ranking lists, in turn, are used by USSA for selection to teams, entry into higher level competitions and for development projects.
