2021 U.S. Ski Team Criteria

Dear Cross Country Community,

We have recently posted a first draft of the 2021 USST selection criteria here:

https://usskiandsnowboard.org/sport-programs/criteria/us-cross-country-team-criteria

The criteria for 2021 is almost identical to the criteria for 2020. The one significant change is this wording for A-Team selection:

· Any athlete achieving one top-6 finish and one top-12 finish in FIS individual distance or sprint World Cup races in the 2019-20 season, excluding “Winner of the Day” performances in pursuit events.

Here we clarified that the intention was to select athletes finishing in the top-6 in a non-“Winner of the Day” World Cup race, and that the athlete also must back-up that performance with an additional top-12 performance to ensure that the top-6 performance was not a one-off, but indicative of true potential or progress towards a medal standard.

When we have the date range for the 8th FIS points list of 2020, which is used to determine World Rank, we can finalize the criteria.

In the meantime, please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions or concerns you might have. Thanks, Chris
