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:
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:
- Best handicap from a 2019 NASTAR Regional Championship event
- NASTAR National ranking handicap from the 2018-19 season (3 race days needed)
- The best handicap and medal earned by March 27th, 2019 will place participants in their division (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze)
- Late qualifiers: NASTAR racers that compete at Squaw Valley March 28-April 4 to qualify will be placed in a division based on their results.
After registering for the event, participants have the option to move to a higher division than their qualifying division.
Participants cannot move to a division below the division in which they qualified.
