Woodleigh Snow Sports Race Team for 2022

Woodleigh enters a team each year in 'The Victorian Interschool Snow Sports Championships' held at Mt. Buller and runs a training camp for the group before the event in the Term 3 Activities Week Camp program.

In 2022 the secondary schools' Victorian Interschool Snow Sport Championship events run from Monday till Sunday, August 22nd to 28th.

This year the training camp will be at Mt Buller. The camp is limited to 20 students. Students will travel up to Mt Buller on the afternoon of Sunday of Week 5, August 14th, and return on Friday, August 19th.

Students would be at school in Week 6 on at least Monday and Tuesday before travelling to Mt Buller for the Victorian Interschool Snow Sports Championships. Depending on the division entered and the event, some students would not need to be at the mountain till Thursday, Friday or Saturday for their races. Divisions are linked to school year levels; Div 3 – Years 7 and 8, Div 2 – Years 9 and 10 and Div 1 – Years 11 and 12. Therefore, Year 12 VCE students who choose to compete would miss very little school with Division 1 running on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. More details of the events and a provisional timetable can be found at the following website, including complimentary insurance for students competing via this snow racer link. All competitors must have a Snow ID.

This year there are only two options for students.

  1. Training camp and competition – recommended for students who are serious about improving their skill and technique and who will compete in the championships. Students must already be able to board or ski at an intermediate level to apply.
  2. Competition only – for past members of the team who want to represent the school and have been on a training camp in past years.

If you are interested in your child being part of the Woodleigh Snow Sports Team in 2022, please ask them to see Mr Higgins for an information letter and forms in Week 1 of Term 2 and to check morning notices for any of the updates and further information.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me early in Term 2.
