2022 Junior Masters Waterski Criteria

A maximum of eight (8) competitors in each discipline shall receive invitations to the 2022 Jr. Masters Water Ski Tournament. These positions will be comprised of a maximum of five (5) single event competitors in junior men and junior women slalom, trick and jump and a maximum of three (3) overall competitors. The overall competitors may compete for individual event titles at the 2022 Junior Masters tournament. Qualifying overall skiers do not take a single event position, even if said overall skier qualified in both overall and the single event at the MQS event. If an overall skier qualifies in a single event and an overall position, the athlete with the next-best performance in that single event at that MQS event in which the overall skier qualified in the single event shall receive the invitation.  Upon qualifying for an invitation, an athlete may continue to compete in MQS Series events, but for score only, and not for placement for the purposes of Jr. Masters Qualification.

 

Selections shall be made according to the following criteria, and in the following order, until all five event competitor positions and all three overall positions are filled:
