Guidelines

The objective of this program is to establish college/university cross-country racing "teams" at post secondary educational facilities in British Columbia, and to support the preparation of student/athletes who wish to compete for Canada in the sport of cross-country skiing at the World University Games (Winter Universiade).

Eligibility: 

  • Athletes must be full time students according to the policies of the post secondary educational institution they are attending, and
  • Notify the CCBC Office of their student status and their interest in participating in this series (i.e. register).

        Enquiries:  contact Dudley Coulter, CCBC Office. Ph: 250 545-9600.  E-mail:  adcoord@crosscountrybc.ca.

Aggregate Awards Guidelines:

  • The six “individual” races in the BC Cup Series will be used to compile points for the Aggregate Awards. 
  • A competitor must be registered in the BC College/University Aggregate Awards Program (see above).
  • A competitor must compete in at least four of the six races.
  • The winner will be determined by points from the competitor’s four best (of a possible six) races. A minimum of two classic and two free technique events must be included among the four events selected to determine the points.
  • In the case of a tie, where the total points are the same, the winner will be decided by the number of first place finishes. If there is still a tie, a tie will be declared.
  • It is not necessary to compete in the BC Championships to win an aggregate award.
  • A competitor must have a valid CCC Racing Licence.

The Aggregate Awards will be presented at the banquet & awards ceremony at the BC Championships.
