All SNSC athletes will automatically get an RMN (Rocky Mountain Nordic) race license for the season. In addition, all athletes who plan to race MUST get a USSA license.
Please make sure you get a COMPETITOR'S LICENSE (no matter your age). This license will allow your USSA points to be tracked year to year, which is important.
You will need to choose your are class based on your birth year — the can be a bit non-intuitive so use the chart below to figure out which age class your athlete will race in. This is dictated by USSA and FIS and there is no flexibility.
Birth year (age in 2019) Class
1999 – 2000 (18 - 19) U20
2001– 2002 (16 - 17) U18
2003 – 2004 (14 - 15) U16
2005 – 2006 (12 - 13) U14
2007 – 2008 (10 - 11) U12
2009 – 2010 (8 - 9) U10
2011 – 2012 (6 - 7) U8
When you register with SNSC for races you will need to have your USSA number. It is used to track your results and rank you on the national ranking list. You will not be able to race without having this number.
