The purpose of the paddler points competition is to promote excellence and encourage participation in
Ohio USCA paddle-sport races.
The points competition in recent years has had two tiers of points for races:
• For race classes with 3 or more entries, 20 points for first, 19 for second, 18 for third, etc.
• For race classes with just 1 or 2 entries, participants get 5 points
The intent of the proposed update is to close the gap between points awarded in these two situations.
The approach for this update is to award points based on overall finish time.
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.

Pretty simple – anyone who participates in one of the Ohio USCA races is eligible. Points are awarded for each race, and end of season awards go to both the man and the woman with the highest point total, as well as to the paddler who attends in the most 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.
If there is a tie for most points, the first tie-breaker is the number of first-place finishes and the second tie-breaker is the number of races entered. If still tied, then random draw for the winner.
If there is a tie for the attendance award, the first tie-breaker is the number of first-place finishes and the second tie-breaker is the number of points. If still tied, then random draw for the winner.
