2018 Overall Championships

SKI JORING AMERICA ChampiONship  sERIES

Upon joining SKI JORING AMERICA, Competitor Members will begin accumulating points for the Skijoring America Point Series Award. Points will accumulate throughout the year to determine the Northern and Southern Champion in 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.

● Points will NOT begin accumulating until a competitor begins becoming a member in good standing.

● SKI JORING AMERICA Point Series Awards will be given to the top Open and Sports Divisions in both the North and South Regions.

● Points will be awarded in only one region. The competitor should declare which region they are competing in. Competitors points will still accumulate for all races for the overall points which we award in the form of a traveling trophy to the top point earning team.

Awards

The SKI JORING AMERICA Series Point winners will receive the following awards.

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

● Equine Competitors will receive embroidered Championship Blankets. ● Should Prize Money be available, it will be equally split between the Top Overall Open Skier and Rider.
