Meet Description

This is a ladder meet.  The initial ladder (i.e. skater groupings) will be built using the time provided at registration.  Skaters will then move up and down the ladder (i.e. skater group) based on finishing positions.  

The ladder movement is based purely on position; i.e. first place skater moves up a group, last place skater moves down a group.  Skaters who are penalized during a race will move down two (2) groups. 

We anticipate having two (2) ladders. One for the 11 and up skaters and a second one for 10 and under skaters.

We hope to be able to record times for the skaters as well.  This depends on having enough volunteers (i.e. volunteers to be timers). 

Skating distances are to be determined.  Awards, if any, are to be determined.
