Week 31  Snow speed week.

Do your snow dance, Tuesday/Wednesday there is 10-15cm in the forecast  lets help it come. 

For those racing in Ripton, Registration is open follow this link to register, you have until Dec 17 to register. 

It is time to get your cross Country Canada Racing license. 
This license is very important for cross country skiers, in categories juvenile and up for both Quebec and Ontario athletes, biathletes you do not need this. This license allows you to collect CPL points, this is how athletes are ranked in Canada and it is connected to the Federation International de Ski (FIS) point list which is the international point list. Once you have your license and you have points on the list you can see how you rank with athletes in Canada and internationally. It is interesting and mandatory for your development as an athlete.

You get points based on how you finish in races that are provincially (Quebec Cup or Ontario Cup), Nationally (Easterns, Nationals) or FIS sanctioned (Ripton, Craftsbury). 

More importantly if you have no points,  you will always start at the back of the pack as you are seeded in races depending on your CPL point ranking. CPL points is how different teams are selected (provincial teams, talent squad, junior national team, national team etc.)

For those that are doing only one Quebec cup race (Easterns) it would be fine to have a day license which is cheaper but it will mean that you do not collect points for next year.  

If it is your first time getting a CCC license then you will need to enter you last name into the search function as CCC wants to make sure that you do not already have a license. When it does not find you then it will prompt you to purchase a license. 

Follow this link to register online for your CCC race license and for those going to Craftsbury you will need to get a FIS license.

You will need the following information
Club Official: Maurice Samm (Head Coach)

These people still have get there CCC license, you need to have a license whether day license or annual license, annual license is best for the reasons stated above.
