Points Series

Ohio USCA Points Series

The points competition is intended to promote attendance and competition at the races.  For races with 3 or more entries in a class: 20 points for 1st place, 19 for 2nd place, 18 for 3rd place, and so forth.  For races with just 1 or 2 entries in a class, participants receive 5 points.   At the end of the paddling season, a prize is awarded to the top man and woman paddler, as well as to the paddler who attends the most races.  Only Ohio USCA races count for the points and attendance awards.

How to join?

In order for the USCA to continue to support, promote, and grow paddle sports, we rely on annual membership dues and support from paddlers just like you. Membership is managed at our parent website: uscanoe.com.
