The Center for Alpine Gliding Studies (CCSVVA) Championships are composed of the CSVVA Distance Championship, the CSVVA Speed Championship and the Sergio Noce Trophy. The purpose is to promote distance and speed flying among ACAO members, designate CSVVA champions and award the Sergio Noce Trophy.

The CSVVA Distance Championship is a single-class handicap race with drivers divided into 4 categories according to experience.
