New This Year - Online Registration!
Registration is now closed for the Championships on Sunday.  We had 141 racers register in advance, so thanks to everyone for registering (and don't forget to check in to be sure we have all of your information correct)!  See you on Sunday!
Please check in on race day morning to be sure we have your correct information.  We are testing this system this year to help make race mornings go more smoothly (the more racers who sign up in advance, the better) and we need ALL RACERS TO CHECK IN THE MORNING OF THE RACE!  If you don't check in on race day, you don't race!  Please note that race day registration is available at every race this year as well!

Overview

The NJRS is a series of fun local ski races, where young athletes test their developing skills. Races are generally held every Sunday, beginning with the first Sunday in January.  Local ski areas and clubs take turns hosting the races. There is no charge for the racers who are a member of a NJRS club.  (Non NJRS club members:  See the FAQ section for details on how to participate in NJRS races.)  Participating NJRS clubs:

NJRS Format

Each race consists of two race runs, usually Giant Slalom.  Slalom was added in 2009 at select races for racers ages 8 and up.  Kids under 8 years old will still race Giant Slalom only.  Times for each run are added together to determine the racers' standings within their age groups.  There are both boys and girls groups for the following ages: (5 & Under)  (6-7) (8-9) (10-11) (12-13) (14-15) (16+).  Awards will be given to the top finishers in each group. See FAQ page more information.
