2018 Overall Championships

SKIJORING AMERICA ChampiONship  sERIES

Upon joining SKIJORING AMERICA, Competitor Members will begin accumulating points for the Skijoring America Point Series Award. Points will accumulate throughout the year to determine the Champions in the Open and Sport Divisions. Ski Joring America points will not be awarded at non-member races.

Points

● This point system will allow Sport competitors to move up to the Pro/Open division without giving up the points they have earned in the Sport. However Open points cannont be transferred to Sport.

● Competitors will only be awarded points for their best placing of the day. For example if a competitor places 1 st and 4 th they will only be awarded the first place points. The competitor that places 5 th will still receive 5 th place points and will not get bumped up.

● In the event of a tie, both teams will receive the same points for the place. For example, if there is a tie for 2nd all six competitors (Horse, Rider and Skier) will be awarded 40 points each in the open and 24 points each in the sport.

● Competitors are not allowed to compete in the Open, Sport, or Novice divisions unless they are a SJA member in good standing.

● SKIJORING AMERICA Point Series Awards will be given to the top Open, Sport, and Novice Divisions.

 

Awards

The SKIJORING AMERICA Series Point winners will receive the following awards.

● Human Competitors will receive embroidered Championship Jackets and Championship Belt Buckles.

● Prizes will be given to winners in the Glacier Region, Open Spaces Region, and Southern Region.
