Greetings South Central Youth Triathletes!

The youth racing series in our region is back!

We apologize for the late notice, but Frank and his team of volunteers have been working hard to bring back the series for this year!  We know their are many athletes in the region that love to race and we want to provide an arena for that!

Please review the list of races below, many of them you will recognize!

The points system will work very closely to the way it has in past years, with one minor change... we will drop out each athlete's lowest scoring race!  We know families have vacations and what not, so this will allow for an athlete to miss a race without it negatively affecting their overall score!

The Points System:

1.) Points will be awarded by gender and by age group...  (6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15 ) based on finishing order:  1st Place - 100 points, 2nd - 90, 3rd - 80, 4th - 70, 5th - 60, 6th - 50, 7th - 40, 8th - 30, 9th - 20, 10th - 10 points.

2.) Each racer's lowest score will be removed, this will allow for each athlete to miss a race.

3.) The Little Buggy Kids Tri will be the championship race and will be worth double points, same as years past.

4.) If a race has an "overall winner" for an age group or set of ages or genders, that athlete will be awarded the "1st Place - 100 Points" and the athlete who finished first in the age group will be awarded 2nd place points.

5.) Awards will be mailed out after the championship race.
