There are 4 ways to earn a spot on the ADT:

  1. Top 2 Alberta Cup placings in each gender in the Midget and Juvenile categories (8 skiers)
    Selection is based on Alberta Cup Points from the best 4 of 6 races** in the Alberta Cup series.  Points are awarded as outlined in the Alberta Cup Technical Package.   Athletes can only count Alberta Cup Points in their normal age category, i.e. athletes racing up in any races will not have included any points they earn in that category.
  2. One skier of each gender from Midget and Juvenile categories not currently selected to the ADT, based on discretionary winter talent identification.  (4 skiers)
  3. One skier of each gender from Midget and Juvenile categories not currently selected to the ADT, based on discretionary dry land talent identification.  
    (4 skiers)
  4. One skier of each gender from Midget and Juvenile categories not currently selected to the ADT,  based on the top placing in a designated Alberta Cup selection race or races (4 skiers) if more than one race is used, the top placing will be the skier with the best combined time percentages.

CCA, may, in extraordinary circumstances, make discretionary selections to the ADT.  Discretionary selections will be motivated by a desire to provide equity in selections.  Any discretionary selections must be based on criteria consistent with the above. 

Should any athlete not accept their nomination to the Alberta Development Team, the next ranked athlete will be selected.

 ** Race Cancellations:  If less than 6 races take place, ranking will be based on 3 of 5/4 or 2 of 3/2.
