We take PSD school buses or Arrow Stage Line/CSU charter buses to our races. Skiers are required to travel to the race with the team, but may travel home with parents with the proper release signature and coach approval.
Nordic State Qualification Requirements To qualify for state championships for Nordic in a specific discipline (Classic or Skate), a skier needs to be eligible AND qualified in that specific discipline.
Eligible means that a skier must race in and finish at least two (2) races in that discipline. These races may be an individual race or a relay race in which the skier competes in that discipline.
Qualified means that in at least one state qualifier race from that discipline the racer must finish in the top 45% of the finishing field. A skier may qualify in one or both disciplines (classic and skate). If the skier qualified in only one discipline, then the skier can only compete in that discipline at the state ski meet.
*The races that count to all-state awards are the state qualifiers and the state meet. **The races that count towards season long team league awards are the state qualifiers and the relay championship.
