The TD Bank J2 National Championships has a long history of being one of the most exciting winter sporting events for youths anywhere. What began modestly in 1992 has grown into one of the highlights of the season for junior athletes. The four New England states and New York each qualify their fastest twenty 14-15 year old boys and girls. Four races ensue over 2 1/2 days. Seeded wave starts ensure match racing at its finest. This event will typically see invited entries from Intermountain Division (Idaho and Utah) and Canada who are scored head-to-head with New England athletes, adding to the weekend of excitement for all participants.
