CXC Cup Seeding Rules


Here are the seeding rules for CXC Cup that have been given to the race OCs:

 U16 Seeding:

  • In Midwest only Junior National Qualifier, racers will be seeded by the following (in priority order):
    • USSA Points
    • Midwest JNQ Points
    • USSA General licenses or otherwise unpointed CXC members
  • If a combined Midwest/Great Lakes Qualifier racers will be seeded by the following (in priority order):
    1. USSA Points
    2. USSA General licenses or otherwise unpointed CXC members


U18/U20/U23/USSA or FIS Licensed Seniors/Masters:

  • Seeding based on best of USSA, FIS or CFIS(College Points)
  • USSA General licenses or otherwise unpointed CXC member U18/U20/U23/Senior will be assigned 990 points



Thus far we have been having joint JNQs, thus U.S. Ski & Snowboard points are the only seeding method we have available. All others are in the random draw.

We should all be advising athletes that if they are concerned about seeding, anybody who is going to want to be seeded properly needs to purchase a competitor license. Taking the route of not purchasing a U.S. Ski & Snowboard license has the consequence of not being seeded with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard licensed skiers.

Everybody has to understand that it is hard on race organizations and the timing companies when the athletes who want good seeding are not purchasing U.S. Ski & Snowboard Competitor Licenses prior to Oct. 15 if a renewal or prior to registering for the races if a first time license purchase.

RUNNING/SEEDING OF SPRINT QUALIFYING AND INDIVIDUAL START RACES

  1. U.S. Ski & Snowboard NRL pointed skiers/FIS pointed skiers: seed groups TBD based upon number of registrants;
  2. U.S. Ski & Snowboard competitor licensed and no NRL points, USBA licensed skiers and no U.S. Ski & Snowboard NRL points: seed groups TBD using Midwest JNQ points as a preference and then random draw those with our points; A ~1 minute gap;
  3. CXC only competitor members with Midwest JNQ points: seed groups TBD using Midwest JNQ points.
  4. CXC only competitor members with out JNQ points: randomly drawn; A ~2 minute gap (provided the race jury does not have concerns with this group impeding or obstructing lapping skiers);
  5. Anybody else participating in an “open” class not officially part of the CXC Cup, “Open” racers are not eligible to move on to sprint heats, as sprint heats are CXC Cup events requiring CXC Membership.
