In 2013 the USSSA Board of Regional Athletic Delegates (BORAD) adopted what is being popularly being called the “Schwam Rule”. This new policy allows the top three finishers in each age group from the 2014 national championships to earn automatic eligibility for the 2015 national championships in Wisconsin. This policy was first proposed by BORAD member Marcy Schwam of Massachusetts. Schwam, a world renowned ultra-marathoner and longtime snowshoe racer and advocate, proposed this rule last year and the BORAD voted to adopt it.

It is hoped this new policy will serve to deepen the fields at the annual national championships. The following list of snowshoe athletes includes, the first “national class” of athletes to benefit from the “Schwam Rule”, certainly reflects the talent and depth that competes each season at the national snowshoe championships.
