U16

U-16 competition (YOB 1998 and 1999) is seen as the transitional step between children’s racing and seeded competition. U-16 athletes who wish to earn points in the USSA points system – or advance to state championships or eastern region events -  must be Competitor Members with USSA.
The Eastern U-16 Finals and U-16 Eastern Championships are major season long goals.  These will lead to further high level racing at the U-16 Can Am event where selected racers will compete against athletes from Alpine Quebec and Alpine Ontario.
USSA will also be holding a U-16 Assessment project in Park City in late March, early April.

U14

U-14 competition (YOB 2000 and 2001) is organized at close to home areas for most of the season. Competitors must hold a valid USSA youth membership for all programs and race in non-scored races. The U-14 program begins with state racing circuits scheduled by each state association. State schedules culminate in a U-14 State Championship later in the season. There will be a U-14 Eastern Championship event in March. Top-performing second year U14s will be invited to the U16 project in Park City.  In April, the USSA Eastern Region and Alpine Quebec and Alpine Ontario will compete at the U-14 Am Can Races.
