At the beginning of each race season, the League will assign a race category to every registered student-athlete. This assignment is based on the riders prior year racing category or the default category for new riders. Should the student-athlete want to change race categories, he/she may file a Petition for Race Category Change which is reviewed by our Rules and Appeals Committee. Petitions should be rider/parent initiated along with guidance from your coach. Petitions filed by the coach may not be considered. Please note that there are petition deadlines for each race.
Deadlines for filing Petition for Race Category Change for the 2017 season area so follows:
March 31: Race 1 Petition Deadline
April 14: Race 2 Deadline
April 28: Race 3 Deadline
May 12: Race 4 Deadline
Please note that any petition filed after the published deadline will not be considered until the next race. For instance, if a petition is filed on April 1, that petition will be considered for Race 2 and the rider must race in their league assigned category for race 1.
