2019 Multiclass Event

The 2019 NSW / ACT / QLD Interschools Multiclass Championships will be held on Saturday August 24 at Perisher as part of the SSA Northern States Interschools Championships. The event is being run in conjunction with Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA). The event is an Alpine and Snowboard GS event for students with a disability in NSW, ACT and QLD.

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.
