Volunteer Course Officials Info - Thredbo

Course Officials Guidelines & Briefings

It is very important that Volunteers understand the various Course Officials positions undertaken at Interschools events before they volunteer. We recommend that all Volunteers read the Course Official Guidelines and/or attend a Course Official Briefing.

Interschools is holding a course officials briefing to go though how to perform the volunteer roles and an opportunity to ask any questions;

  • Monday July 15 - 3.30pm-4.30pm at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel.

 

Volunteer Course Officials Lift Ticket Collection

Volunteers are entitled to a free of charge lift ticket on the day they are volunteering.  This lift ticket can only be used by the Course Official if they do not already have a lift pass or season pass.

Lift tickets are collected at the Interschools Race Office at Friday Flat at Thredbo between 7.15am - 9.30am each day.

 

Course Official Check In

All Volunteers must check in at the Race Office before making their way to the top of the course for the course inspection time. The Interschools Race Office at Thredbo is located at Friday Flat. You must check into the Interschools Race Office between 7.15am - 9.30am each day.

When you check in you will be given a folder, officials vest and an option to take a bottle of water and snack pack. Please bring a backpack to put these in. After you have finished your volunteers duties on course you will need to make sure that the folder and vest is returned to Interschools. 

 

What Happens if I can no longer Volunteer?

In the event that you cannot fulfil your volunteer course official’s position please make an attempt to replace yourself with another person from your school. If you find a replacement, please make sure that they are either aware of what duties they are fulfilling as course official or that they have read the course official guidelines. If you are not able to find a replacement for yourself, please let Interschools know as soon as possible. 

 

Volunteer Tips

Please be prepared for all weather conditions when you are volunteering on our courses and make sure you have clothing options for all conditions!

Gate keepers can be the most exposed to the elements and will be standing or sitting down for the duration of the course. You will be required to write notes in this position so please bring either inner gloves or similar that you can write with.
