The Provincial Snocross Championship features 7 rounds in as many different administrative regions in Quebec. The rounds take place over one or two days depending on the location. In all categories (classes), each day is a complete race program with qualifications and finals. The results of the two days of racing are fully independent and count as two entries to the championship.

Depending on the total of athletes registered, it is possible that a class may be separated into two groups in order to meet the maximum limit of 12 athletes on a starting line. Otherwise, if a class has few athletes registered, it is possible, according to some rules, to merge two classes during the same race to enhance the show and make the action more interesting for the fans.

The transition, junior 8-10 and 10-13 categories are subject to restrictions on power and maximum speed of the snowmobiles. In order to make the sport more accessible and affordable, athletes in the junior categories must use a used snowmobile that is at least 1 year old.

In all other categories, the type of snowmobile is the same regardless of brand and year and cannot be modified except for the suspension and clutch, which cannot be purchased from a dealer. Snocross snowmobiles are only available from manufacturers (Ski-Doo, Polaric, Arctic Cat) or second hand from an individual or an athlete who acquires a new one. Only the « Beginner » category allows athletes to use « trail » or « backcountry » type snowmobiles in order to try out the sport.
