Juniors and seniors may compete in all 6 designated events. Events are timed, based on elimination, or both. Time penalties are added if a rider is off course or fails to complete part of an event.

Ribbons are awarded for the top 6 placing riders, and points are awarded. The junior and senior riders with the most points at the end of the year will receive a trophy. In the pewee division, everyone gets a ribbon or a treat!
