How to enter: School Coordinators can enter competitors into Slopestyle events via the online entry system under the event "NSW State Championships".
Schools Coordinators Responsibility: Each school coordinator prior to entering a student in the event must deem that the student has the appropriate level of skill and experience to compete. Questions that must be asked by each coordinator to the participant are:
• Can you execute a controlled straight air on a ‘green’ or ‘S’ (Small) category jump?
• Can you execute a controlled 50/50 (snowboard) or straight grind (skier) on a 5metre box?
• Do you have the ability to ride/ ski switch in a controlled way down a blue run?
National Qualification Rule: The top 15 Individuals only will qualify for the Australian Interschools Championships.
For State Slopestyle competitors a minimum acceptable score (for National Championship progression) will be determined by the Interschools Committee following completion of each event, and before invitations are extended to the National level of competition. Historically this has been a score which is a minimum 45% of the total attainable score (45/100) and is often as high as 55% of the total attainable score (55/100). The minimum progression score determined by the Interschools Committee reflects the Championship Division level (competitor age), the course conditions, and the skill-level and quality of the athlete field.
With all Slopestyle Events, no Championship School points are awarded at State or Australian Events. Due to scheduling of the Interschools events on August 22, students will not be able to compete in both the Slopestyle and cross country events.
