NorCal Championship – May 6-7: Six Sigma
NorCal Championships qualifications:
From the NICA/NorCal rulebook: “Overall Series scoring for individuals is based on the best 4 of 5 in a five-race series or the best 3 of 4 in a four-race series. In other words, the lowest score is dropped. If there are fewer than four races in the series, no score will be dropped.”
Athletes who came close to qualifying may petition to compete at the NorCal Championship, space in their category permitting.
Race Results are posted within 24hrs of the end of the race. If you are confused about points, consult the rulebook first. If you are still confused, email Robert Picard.
Overall Individual results will begin dropping the lowest race result starting after race #3. In other words, the Overall Individual results for the third race will only add up two races, and drop your lowest race score.

2023 Category Placement
NICA Category placement rules are covered in the NorCal/NICA Handbook. Category placement is based on the previous season’s race results. Riders who participated last season can find their category placement in the following tables.
For new riders, or returning riders who did not participate last season, category placement is based on grade. 6th-8th graders = Middle School, 9th graders =Freshman, 10th graders = Sophomore, 11th-12th graders = JV.
Category upgrade petitions: A student can petition to upgrade to a higher category. 9th through 10th graders may only petition to race JV or Varsity; 11th and 12th graders may only petition to race Varsity. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders must race in their current grade category, and may not petition to race in other middle school, or high school, categories.
To be approved for an upgrade, students must establish that they lack competition in their present category, either through actual NorCal race results or non-league
races of similar length that preferably include current NorCal riders in the target category.
After discussing a potential upgrade with their coaches, students should fill out the petition form, including the head coach’s email address; once submitted, a separate form will be sent to the coach for their comments (so it’s important the Coach email is correct in the student submission).
