Tentative Event Schedule/Information

LEAD - Youth Athletes (Youth C, B, A, Jr)

Please refer to the Provincial Standings on the ACA website to find current rankings.
Provincial ranking is determined by a climber's best two local competition results plus their results at Provincials.

The ACA is entitled to send EIGHT male and EIGHT female climbers to Lead Nationals in each of Youth C, B, A and Junior (there are no Nationals for Youth D). The top-8 ranked ACA climbers per category are automatically eligible to attend but MUST register by the deadline. Occasionally, other provinces don't fill their quota, so we can send more athletes. As well, sometimes athletes in the top eight are unable to attend so we can offer spot(s) to climbers ranked lower.

If you are NOT in the top-8 but want to attend, you must register by the deadline as well; you will be notified within a few days of the registration deadline whether there is a spot for you. If not, your registration fee will be reimbursed. 

LEAD - Open Athletes (those born 1998 or earlier)

Open (adult) athletes do NOT need to qualify for Lead Nationals, but do need to register by the deadline. A nationally ranked membership is required to participate.

SPEED - Youth and Open Athletes

Athletes do not need to qualify for Speed Nationals, but do need to register by the deadline. A nationally ranked membership is required to participate.
