2019 Division Rules for National Championships

The process for determining racer divisions for the Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR National Championships is based on ability. The criteria is designed to place participants in the correct division based on their ability within their age and gender group:

Platinum Division

Gold Division

Silver Division

Bronze Division


Liberty Mutual Insurance NASTAR National Championship participants will be placed in a division based on results within their race profile. The first option listed below that fits a participant's race profile will place them in their division:


  1. Best handicap from a 2019 NASTAR Regional Championship event
  2. NASTAR National ranking handicap from the 2018-19 season (3 race days needed) as of March 27th.
  3. If less then three race days are completed to earn a National Ranking, the best handicap and medal earned by March 27th, 2019 will place participants in their division (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze)
  4. Late qualifiers: NASTAR racers can compete at Squaw Valley, March 28-April 4 to qualify. Late qualifiers will be placed in a division based on their best result.

Racer divisions are set on March 27th. Participants have the option to move to a higher division than their qualifying division, but participants cannot move to a division below the division in which they qualified.
