Age Groups

Racing Age Groups – NENSA / USSA / FIS

NENSA & USSA have adopted the “U” age class system with ‘U’ or ‘Under’ replacing the ‘J’ system for our competitive junior age groups. Age categories remain in two year increments, and the classifications are the same, only the title changes. For example, 18-19 year olds are now U20, 16-17 year olds are U18, and so on.
Your Age Group is defined by your age as of December 31st.

Racing Age Groups:
U16 (14-15 year olds)
U18 (16-17 year olds)
U20 (18-19 year olds)
U23 age group (20, 21 & 22 year olds)
Senior Age Group (23-29 year olds)
