4) The ADJUSTED 2011-12 USSA Mid-Atlantic JN Team ranking list will be based on the following:

·   Athletes must complete 3 eligible points races.

·   Athletes must complete a minimum of 3 Mid-Atlantic JNQ races.

·   A minimum of one freestyle and one classic points race will be used in the athlete’s point average.

·   Athletes will be allowed to substitute 1 out-of-region race points from either the 2012 US Cross Country Championships or from a current season NENSA JNQ, which occur prior to the final Mid-A JNQ.

·   Athletes are responsible for submitting out-of-region race points to the Mid-A Competition Committee for verification.

·   The USSA points calculation system will be used to score the Mid-A JNQ races.

·   If an athlete finishes in the top 5 in a Mid-A JNQ, the athlete’s USSA 2011 list 8 overall points will be used to score the Mid-A JNQ. If an athlete finishes in the top 5 in a Mid-A JNQ and does not carry USSA 2011 list 8 overall points, the athlete’s points from the 2010-11 Mid-A JO Team final ranking list will be used first and if those are not available, the athlete will be assigned 350.00 points for calculation purposes.

·   J1/OJ athletes will be scored and ranked together. J2 athletes will be scored and ranked separately.

·   An athlete’s point race average must be below 350.00 to qualify for the 2012 USSA Mid-Atlantic Junior National Team. 

5) Results from Mid-A JNQ races will be posted to the website within 24 hours after finish. Results from Mid-A JNQ races are final 48 hours after finish. Points for the Mid-A JNQ will be posted to the website within 72 hours after the finish. Points for the Mid-A JNQ are final 96 hours after the finish. It is the athlete’s responsibility to verify that their Mid-A JNQ results and points are correct.

6) College skiers may qualify by any of the above listed methods for all skiers, or by one or more of the following methods:

a)  Automatic qualification for the top 5 juniors on the final NCAA East, NCAA West or NCAA Central ranking lists 

 (USSA rule 70.1.4). These skiers can enter JN’s as part of the team above the quota from their home division.

b)  Automatic qualification for any college skier who places in the top 20 overall at 2012 US Cross Country Championships.

c)  Automatic qualification for any college skier who qualifies for NCAA championships.

d)  Have qualified for the USSA Mid-A Junior Olympic Team previously and are racing on their college carnival team with at least two carnival finishes in the top 50 in an EISA carnival.
