What’s new for Interschools in 2017?

The NSW & ACT Interschools Snowsports Championships is celebrating their 30th Anniversary as they currently have been held. There are a number of new initiatives and incentives for 2017 with a few already announced.

Division 6 Ski Cross has arrived!

Following the extraordinary success of the Division 6 Alpine events in 2016, Division 6 Ski Cross will now be introduced in 2017 at the ACT-Southern NSW Interschools Championships. The Division 6 Alpine and Ski Cross events will also be held at 2017 Australian Interschools hosted at Mt Buller on the 6th to 10th of September. The Division 6 Alpine and Ski Cross events will hold School Championship points at the Australian Championships.

Slopestyle events to be extended to Division 3

The 2017 Interschools Slopestyle Ski and Snowboard events will be held for Division 1-3 on Thursday August 24 at Perisher. The Slopestyle events will not hold any School Championship points in 2017. The top 10 individuals assuming a minimum skill level will qualify for the 2017 Australian Interschools at Mt Buller. As with the 2016 Australian Interschools Championships, only individuals qualify. No team medals or Championship points will be awarded in the Australian Interschools Slopestyle events.

Multiclass Championships

Interschools, in conjunction with Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA), will be holding the Interschools Multiclass Championships on August 26 at Perisher, an alpine and snowboard event for students with a disability in NSW, ACT and QLD.

Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a two day DWA training camp at Perisher leading up to the event on August 24 & 25. The camp is free of charge (with DWA membership) and involves 2 x 2 hour coaching sessions each day with DWA’s volunteer adaptive snowsport guides. It is a basic introduction to racing to help students understand the racing process and to become more comfortable in a race course.

Students compete for their school in their Interschools division. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 place getters in each division. Entries will open in early August through the Interschools Online Entry System and participants will need to RSVP for the training camp.

For more information on DWA and the event camp, please contact Tom at tmitten@disabledwintersport.com.au or 0487 442 237
