  • Team Selection and Qualifying procedure:  A junior ski racer can qualify for the EHSC race by competing in of the scheduled JNQ races this winter (and earn an athlete a JNQ point total under 450 points).  Additionally, high school skiers at the New York State Public High School State Championship Meet will receive an invitation to represent NY high schools at the Eastern High School Championship as well as the top 3 junior finishers at the Empire State Games. The team will be filled when 24 boys/24 girls commit to the trip.  These athletes will then have to signup on skireg before the registration deadline.  The final balance for the trip will be due ten days before the trip.
  • Qualified Athletes should verify their point total here: (points) and then register at this skireg link

*If more athletes sign up than the 24/24 available roster spots the team will be determined by: first the JNQ points totals from the qualifying races, followed by the results from the State Meet and finally the results from ESG’s.  Athletes who sign-up before the State Meet, but fail to be named to the team in this unlikely situation, will be given a full refund and encouraged to qualify next season.

The final cost for the trip will be determined by the team size.  The trip will run approx. $400.00 per athlete.

EASEF financial grants are available for 1 boy and 1 girl to participate at EHSC this winter.

**If roster spots remain open right before the trip, it is up to the discretion of the trip organizers how and if these roster spots will be filled.

U16 CHAMPIONSHIPS

A junior ski racer who is a U16 racer can qualify for the U16 Championship race by competing in 1 of the scheduled JNQ races this winter (and earn an athlete a JNQ point total under 450 points).   Any U16 athlete who completes 1 JNQ qualifier will be named to the U16 Team.  Additionally, high school skiers who are under that age of 16 at the New York State Public High School State Championship Meet will receive an invitation to represent NY high schools at the U16 Championship and the team will be filled when 24 boys/24 girls commit to the trip.  These athletes will then have to signup on skireg and pay the deposit on skireg before the registration deadline.  The final balance for the trip will be due one week before the trip.

The final trip cost will be determined once we know how many kids are going and have a plan for transportation. We estimate the cost of each trip to be ~$450.00. This will include food, lodging, transportation, and race entrance fees. We are looking for parent/coach volunteers, to either drive a rental van from their area, or bring kids in their vehicles. Interested parents should contact the trip leader prior to the event.
