Welcome to the 2014 Season!

How Do I Qualify For Nationals?

 A) Win the Maine Mountain Series Regional Series Title in your division, or B) get invited through the National Ranking System.  The first place finisher in each age/gender group in the Maine Mountain Series, based on the highest point total from up to 3 of the Maine Mountain Series events offered in each discipline, will receive an automatic invitation to the USASA National Championships.  NOTE: Ties for Regional Champions will need to be broken for purposes of awarding the automatic Regional Champion Nationals spot... First Tiebreaker: Highest score from most recent event. Second Tie Breaker: Top two Regional Event Scores. Third Tie Breaker: Top single Regional Event Score.  All other invitations will be awarded through the National Ranking System.  Please review the information contained in the Nationals section of the USASA website for additional information on the National Ranking System.
