Limited Entry

Postby Hans Koraeus » Sat Mar 08, 2014 4:46 am

Limited entry for events can be useful in some cases.

1. Risk that too many racers will attend.
If there is a risk that too many racers will attend the race it will affect the quality of the event. If there are too many racers attending there is a great risk that racers who take time off and pay a lot of money for travel, hotels, event fee aso will not get the expected number of runs. It does increase the risk that things will not go according to plan. There might be some rain. There might be problem with timing equipment. Things often take longer than expected.

2. Increase the level of the race
For events like World Championships, European Championships, US Nationals aso it could be a good idea to make sure there is a certain level on the racers showing up. It does not look good with beginners on such races. And even if we of course should support new racers to the slalom scene these Major events are maybe not the place for this.

3. Limited time for racing
It might be that a big event does not have all day to race. They might have a strict time schedule with many other events going on. Maybe TV-station are booked to film aso. In these cases you will make sure you have margins to be able to follow the time plan. And for this you may calculate how many racers you think is possible to do just that. And set limit of racers according to this.


Overview selection process for limited racers

When setting a limit for racers it is important that the selection process becomes fair and equal for all events. And also that it is easy for organizers to make such limitation. For this reason ISSA has created special ranking lists for the purpose. They are published on the World Rankings page together with all other rankings. They are called Limit PRO, Limit AM aso.

Racers who have raced a lot with good results have priority. Also racers who have made top placements in the big events. And we also take into account results from a couple of years back.

More details of selection process for limited racers

If an event organizer wants to limit the field they need to do this per class. Not all classes need to have limitations.
Classes are PRO, AM, WOMEN, MASTER, MASTER WOMEN, JUNIORS, JUNIOR GIRLS.

You can also set limit for a specific region or country. But note that this is just a way to publish the limit. It is not possible to exclude racers from other regions or countries for an event to count into the World Ranking.

Example with limit: 20 AM Europe
So setting a limit of for example as 20 best racers from Europe it means 20 best racers from Europe and other racers outside Europe who are better or equal to the 20th European racer in the limit list.

Also if not all the 20 best Europeans register the start list will fill up with next registered racers in line according to the limited entry list.


Registration process

The event registration of racers at the world ranking site now takes into account limited entry for classes.

When a racer register for an event with a limited class there will be a check towards the limit ranking list for that class. If racer is within the limit they will get marked as "Registered". If not they will be marked as "Wait list".

IMPORTANT!
While you are on wait list don't buy any travel or event fee's.

When registration deadline is up then all the top racers according to the class limit and limit list ranking for the racers will get marked as "Registered".

If there is also a part pre-payment of the event fee then all racers who are marked as "Registered" should also pay the pre-payment fee before the payment deadline. Those who have paid will get marked as "Confirmed". After the payment deadline the top racers with status "Confirmed" are ready for the race.

So there is always a reason to register if you want to try an qualify for the event. Even if you are not within the limit you might be so after the registration deadline. And if still not within the limit you might be after the payment deadline.

The organizer will contact racers according to the limit list after payment deadline if there are open places to fill up. When the start list is filled up and complete the racers who did not make it will be taken away from the registration list.

If a class is not filled up after registration deadline you can only register by contacting the event organizer manually.


The limit listing logic

See all the complete limitation ranking lists at the World Ranking Page.

Below you can see how the priority for racers are built up. The backbone of the limitation lists are the previous years world ranking. But there are other criteria that also come into play like previous years rankings and specific top results made in big events.

A new limitation ranking is created every year after the final World Ranking for the year is official.
