All participants wanting to compete in the Interschools Snowsports competitions require an active Snowracer registration, which gives you a SnowID, to compete.
Participants who have competed before in Interschools in the last few years will already have a SnowID but you need to make sure that you have activated (renew) your Snowracer registration for 2019. You would have now received an email to activate your Snowracer registration for 2019.

SSA strongly recommend participants at all levels undertake baseline testing. This education and baseline screening is of the same standard and the same process that professional athletes complete. More details are available here.
Volunteer course officials are required at Interschools events to create fair and safe courses for the competitors.
For every 8 entries that a school enters into the Interschools Championships, 1 volunteer course official must be supplied by the school. Schools must register volunteers in the online entry system where they submit the volunteer names for the school and indicate the courses and position that they are able to volunteer on.
Volunteers must be registered in the Online Entry System before entries close.
All volunteers must complete a volunteer waiver by June 28 for all Regional Championships.
Interschools events are open to students in Kindergarten to Year 12.
Competitors from all ability levels are encouraged to enter, with an emphasis on fun and participation in the initial regional championships. As the competitions move into the State and then the National event, the level of competition and the degree of difficulty increases.
Interschools is a team-based competition for students attending the same school, although individuals can enter when insufficient competitors are not available to form a team (except for the Cross Country Relay which is a team only event).
Teams and Individuals compete in their school divisions: Division 1 Years 11 & 12, Division 2 Years 9 & 10, Division 3 Years 7 & 8 , Division 4 Years 5 & 6, Division 5 Year 4 and below.
Students can enter Division 6 in Alpine and Ski Cross. Division 6 is for students in Kindergarten to Year 2.
Competitors can compete up a division to make a team. However, a primary school competitor can not race in a secondary division. Females can compete in a male team.
The top 3 teams and individuals are awarded in each event, except the Cross Country Relay where only the teams are recognised. The top 5 teams and top 10 individuals from an event are considered for an invitation to the next competition round.
To achieve a team score, teams need to include:
3-4 competitors for Alpine. Fastest 3 times in each run needed to achieve team result.
2-3 competitors for Ski Cross, Moguls, Snowboard Giant Slalom, Snowboard Cross and Ski and Snowboard Slopestyle. Fastest times/scores in each run needed to achieve team result.
3 competitors for the Cross Country Freestyle and Relay. Aggregate of 3 team member finishes used for Freestyle team place.
School students from all ability levels are encouraged to enter, with an emphasis on fun and participation in the initial Regional Championships. As the competitions move into the NSW State and Australian event, the level of competition and the degree of difficulty increases.
It is advised that all competitors must be able to execute link turns and ride a chairlift/T-bar confidently, prior to competing in Regional Level events.
