If your school has previously entered the Interschools Championships and you are taking over the School Coordinator role in 2018; get a login for the Online Entry System by either;

  1. Asking the previous school coordinator to login to the Online Entry System and update the School Details tab with the new school coordinators email address. They can either set a new password for you or you can click 'Retrieve Password' on the login page to the Online Entry System to set a new password yourself. 
  2. Email NSW Interschools at info@nswinterschools.com.au to update the login. You must then login and update the temporary password you are given. Please update your details on the School Details tab in the Online Entry System. Ensuring that the School Details page is updated allows school coordinators to be sent SMS updates during the Championships and Interschools can contact the correct coordinator for any queries with your entries, etc.

If your school has not previously entered in the Interschools Championships you will need to register the school for the Online Entry System home page (click "register"). Please check with NSW Interschools if your school is registered for the Online Entry System before registering the school as there cannot be multiple school registrations by emailing info@nswinterschools.com.au

Snowracer and SnowID

There is one change to the Online Entry System this year involving participants Snowracer Registration and SnowID.

It is a condition of entry that all participants are registered with Snowracer (you only need to do this once…ever!!). When you have signed up for Snowracer you will be allocated a SnowID.

Only participants new to the Interschools Championships in 2018 will need to register with Snowracer to secure a SnowID.

If you competed in the last few years, you would have already registered with Snowracer either directly through the Snowracer website or as part of the NSW/ACT/QLD participant waiver form.

From 2018, Snowracer registration is no longer available through the Interschools participant waiver. Instead – all new participants to Interschools will need to register directly on the Snowracer Website.

Registration with Snowracer is free of charge and has the following benefits.

Snowracer Insurance - FREE insurance cover while competing in Australia. This insurance is for non-medical expenses to the value of $500 and covers items such as refunds for your entry fee and lift tickets, lost accommodation or car repatriation. More details regarding the policy is available here.

SnowID - Your SnowID is your unique identifier should you register for any events, make an insurance claim or upgrade your registration with Ski & Snowboard Australia.

On many Interschools courses, there is a live timing system that is available for all to see on the Snowracer website. Where an event is run using the live timing system, all competitors registered with a SnowID will appear in the results. Please note, that after an event is held, Interschools official results with all participants will be published on the Interschools website.

PLEASE NOTE

It is the participants (or their parents) responsibility to make sure that you have a Snowracer Registration before entering Interschools events. Please forward the email registration confirmation you receive from Snowracer to your school coordinator so that they have the correct information to complete your Interschools entries. 

If you have a Snowracer Registration, keep your contact details up to date. You can do this at any time, by logging into the Snowracer website. Your email address you used to register for Snowracer must match the email address you supply to your school coordinator.

If you are unsure of whether you have a Snowracer Registration and/or SnowID, you can use the SnowID look up.

Competitor and Team Manager Lift Tickets

For Team Managers to receive a discounted lift ticket, their name must be assigned to the team/individual they are looking after when entries are completed in the online entry system. No changes or additions of team manager names will be accepted after the close of entries date.

How to Register Volunteers, Guidelines and Briefings

Volunteer Registration

School Coordinators need to submit volunteer names into the Online Entry System before the close of entries. Schools need to supply 1 volunteer for every 8 entries. School Coordinators assign volunteers to a particular course to volunteer on (eg Division 1 Male Alpine).

Most volunteers prefer to volunteer on a course that they have a child in so that they can volunteer and watch their child compete. This works if there is a team manager and/or parent/guardian who can look after your child, or your child is experienced enough to not need your help for course inspection and their race starts.

Some volunteers prefer to volunteer on a course that their child is not involved in and will volunteer on a day they aren’t competing (eg on a snowboard course when they child is in the ski events).

The earlier you register the volunteers the better, as volunteer positions get filled as there is a quota for each event discipline and you may not necessarily get your first course preference.

You can assign volunteers to the 3 roles of Start Marshall, Gate Keeper and Finish Assistant. This position is not always what you will be assigned to but it does let us know your first preference.

 

Volunteer Waiver

All volunteers must complete a volunteer waiver by June 29. School Coordinators can check who has completed waivers in the online entry system.

 

Volunteer Roster

Around the same time that the Race Schedule is released (typically 3-5 days before the event starts), the volunteer roster will also be available. Keep an eye out for it on the website. The roster will let you know what course(s) you have been assigned to, what time and location the course will be held and your volunteer role.

 

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 holds two course officials briefings during the school holidays that go though how to perform the volunteer roles and an opportunity to ask any questions;

  • Monday July 9 - 3.30pm-4.30pm at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel.
  • Monday July 16 - 3.30pm-4.30pm in the Interschools Race Office in the Perisher Skitube Terminal.

 

If you have any queries about volunteers, please contact Wendy on 0422 240 483 or wendy@nswinterschools.com.au
