INFO BELOW FROM THE EASTERN HANDBOOK
Thirty Eastern athletes per gender will qualify to represent the Eastern Region at the U14 Can-Am Races.
30 Eastern athletes per gender will qualify to the Can-Am from U14 Eastern Championships
Winners of individual events contested at the U14 Eastern Championships (SG, GS, SL) or whatever events are able to be contested, followed by rankings based on each athlete's best 2 single run and/or overall results from the series. First place(s) will receive 1 point; second place(s) will receive 2 points, etc. The results of out of region athletes who are given entrance to the U14 Championships under the discretionary quota of the Eastern office are purged. Ties will be decided by the next best place (third result/place). Athletes must choose U16 Nationals or U14 Can-Am and must notify the Regional Director within 48 hours of completion of U14 Eastern Championships.
Seeding at the Can-Am will be done separately for each event, and will be based on the same place points system from the U14 Eastern Championships used to qualify for the Can-Am. This means that the seeds will likely vary for each discipline.
Scoring and other Special Can-Am Rules
Scoring information and other special rules specific to the Can-Am (such as course setting regulations) can be found on the Governance page of the Eastern Region website.

Points will not be used for any U14 selections, or seeding at any non-scored U14 race.
No out-of-Division scored racing for U14s prior to the conclusion of U14 Eastern Championships.
No out of region scored racing for U14s, except at U16 Nationals.
