Snowboardcross and Skiercross - U16, U18 & MASTERS competing in either Snowboardcross or Skiercross can opt to compete in the OPEN category but MUST INFORM REGISTRATION upon collection of their Bib.
U12’s are not allowed to forfeit their age group and compete in the Open.
IMPORTANT: If the final result is taken on timed runs, then the athlete will be eligible for both their age category (inc U12's) & overall titles regardless of whether they opted out of their age group prior to the competition.
N.B. The Overall category is where the National Champions are crowned and cash prizes awarded.
Slopestyle and Halfpipe - U12,U16,U18 & MASTERS competing in Slopestyle and Halfpipe will automatically be placed in both their "Age" category and "OPEN" category. Making it possible to win both.
Studying the procedures and criteria behind judging and then putting these skills into practise is a very complex matter which demands attendance at judging conferences and workshops and takes years of experience to hone, however, in the interest of transparency we are working with our fully qualified Head Judges to create an overview document to inform athletes as to what is rewarded.
All competitors MUST wear a helmet when practicing and competing at the BRITS
No lycra or speed suits, cling film allowed.
