The 2005 World Finals for Junior Ski competition will now accept riders as young as 10 years old, according to the American Power Boat Association (APBA) and the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA). In 2004, racers were permitted to participate in all APBA events, including the APBA Watercross Nationals, from the age of 12. However, the IJSBA set the age limit for the World Finals at 14. The new rule applies to Freestyle and three Junior classes in the ski division only. The Junior Ski 10-12 Stock, Junior Ski 13-15 Stock and Junior Ski 13-15 Limited classes are eligible to compete at both the APBA Watercross Nationals and the World Finals. Junior racers are not allowed to participate in the Runabout class, and the age limit for that class remains at 16 years old. More details on qualifications and registration will be available shortly, and Junior Ski racers are advised to contact their local race promoter for confirmation.
