Snow Australia Interschools Statement
Provisional 2021 NSW/ACT/QLD/SA Interschool Snowsports Events Schedule
Snow Australia Interschools and our NSW & VIC Resort Partners – Perisher, Thredbo and Falls Creek, are pleased to confirm our 2021 NSW / ACT / QLD / SA Events Schedule.
2020 has been a year like no other, and over the past weeks we have strongly worked together to ensure that we are well placed to restart our Interschool Snowsports Events in late June 2021.
Throughout 2021, Snow Australia will continue to place the safety, health and well-being of our competitors, volunteers, parents and school communities as its prime focus. Together with our Resort partners, we are committed to closely monitor the directives from governments, and the recommendations and policies of school systems and health authorities with regard to any possible environment of constant change and challenge due to Covid-19.
The 2021 winter-season for Interschools will see:
- The earliest July School Holiday Interschools Event period for many years, being 2021 winter-season weeks 3 & 4 and commencing Monday 28th June.
- A structured and covid-safe race operations base, and on-snow racecourse arena, with an event focus on fun, participation and friendly competition at all levels.
- A move to weekday only events for Interschool Snowsports Championships moving forward.
- The introduction of a 4th NSW Regional Area – the South-West NSW Region, where we will partner with South Australia Snowsports and Falls Creek to collectively host the 2021 South Australian + South-West NSW Interschool Championships in mid-July.
- Regular, clear and factual communication with our highly valued School Coordinators as we plan through the coming 8-month period in an evolving environment.
- A commitment from Snow Australia Interschools to increase our connection to the schools community through Snowsports on-line forums and education pieces on Snowsports developments.
- The launch of a new on-line Course Officials Training Course, along with a new Interschools Website in the first quarter of 2021.
- A return of the Snow Australia Community Sports Awards in November 2021.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Australian Snowy Mountains Region in 2021.
