Skiwerx Series and CXC Youth Cup FAQS:
Q: Are there different rules for the Skiwerx Series and CXC Youth Cup?
A: Yes, the rules vary slightly, so please read the relevant information. The Skiwerx Series is intended to be focused more locally in the metro and as an easier introduction (for parents and skiers) to racing. The CXC Youth Cup is regional and requires some travel. One big differnece is that the Skiwerx Series includes the U10 age group.
Q: How many races count for points:
A: In the CXC Youth Cup, Five races for U14 and Four races for U12 age groups. For the Skiwerx Series, the best four races are scored for all age groups (U14, U12 and U10).
Q: Can my child race up an age group?
A: To participate in the CXC Youth Cup or Skiwerx Series, skiers have to race in their age group (determined by year of birth). We need all skiers to feel comfortable in their age group, whether they are role models or looking up to role models. In rare instances, when there is not a seperate U10 category, those skiers will race with U12.
Q: Do I need a license number to register for events?
A: No, there are no license/membership numbers. However, your skier needs a MyXC Skiwerx Membership, which is usually included in your winter club registration (Skiwerx and Trail Kids programs).
