Additional Event Notes:

Shalom Park is pleased to announce they will be hosting the Jr. Canadian Open, July 8-10, 2023. The field of competitors will have until May 31, 2023 to submit scores to qualify for this U21/U17 event. The 2-round, world record-capable event will feature U21 Junior Men/Junior Women and U17 Boys/Girls athletes.

Additional Rules:

The Junior Canadian Open Water Ski Championships will be a two-day/two-round World Record Capability competition with a preliminary and final round. This event is sanctioned by Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada. Current International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation rules apply in all cases, except as listed herein. The event will be towed by Nautique Boats.

There will be four divisions: U17Boys, U17Girls, U21Men, and U21Women.

Boys and Girls, U17 must have been born in the year 2005 or more recently.
Men and Women, U21 must have been in the year 2002 or more recently.

Preliminary round event qualification and seeding
There are no minimum qualifications. Each athlete must submit two scores per event performed at two separate WSWC Canadian Record Capable (CRC) or IWWF World Ranking List (WRL) sanctioned tournaments between Friday, May 1, 2022, and May 20, 2023.

Proof of performances must be submitted to: kristy@shalompark.com

Max Number of competitors in each event of the preliminary round

Slalom Tricks Jump
U17Boys 8 8 8
U17Girls 8 8 8
U21Men 8 8 8
U21Women 8 8 8
These numbers include overall skiers described in provision #1 below.

Method of filling the list:

1. The #1, #2, and #3 ranked skiers on the April 2022 IWWF Junior and U21 World Ranking Lists in overall and posted as final will be selected first and seeded in the final running order according to the average of the two scores submitted in each event.
2. The remaining positions (up to 8) in each event will be filled according to the average of the two scores submitted in each event.
3. All ties, whether for a seeding position or for the last qualifying position, will be broken by looking at the first highest individual score, then the most current published IWWF ranking list score.
4. Where there are skiers still tied for the last qualifying position, all will be entered.
5. Using the above procedures, replacements will be made due to withdrawal by the end of the 6:00 p.m. mandatory skiers meeting at the tournament site the day before the start of the event. No further changes will be made after that time.

If the event qualification process does not produce at least three (3) overall competitors in each of the four divisions for the preliminary round, additional overall competitors will be invited to compete in all three events of the preliminary round. (This may exceed the 96 total pulls for the tournament.)

These overall competitors will be selected according to the highest overall score, second highest, etc., on the World Junior and U21 Rankings Weekly rankings (last one before above end dates) in overall and posted as final until three competitors are confirmed in each of the four divisions. Overall skiers will only ski in the final round if they make the cut for that round. The overall skier’s highest event score from either round in each event will be used in the calculation for overall placement with the thousand points attributed to the top score by an overall skier only.

Final Round
The following number of skiers from Saturday’s preliminary will advance to the final round held on Sunday: U17/U21 Men Slalom (4), Tricks (4), Jump (4); U17/U21 Women Slalom (4), Tricks (4), Jump (4).

Seeding for Sunday’s final round will be based on Saturday’s preliminary round results with the skier with the best score skiing last. Ties in seeding will be based on the competitor with the higher-seeded position in the preliminary round. Ties for the last qualifying position will be run off according to IWWF rules. In the finals, any ties other than first will be awarded to the higher seed. Ties for first in slalom will be a one-time run-off where the top skier has the choice to go 1st or 2nd and whoever skis 2nd must beat whoever skis first.

All entries must be done online. All entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. MST, Wednesday, May 20, 2023. The entry fee is $285 USD regardless of the number of events.
