Race Entry and Membership
Firstly, schools must become members of ESSKIA.
Once a member, you are able to enter our Regional Qualifier Race.
The races are for school teams, which consist of a maximum of FOUR skiers (minimum of THREE). Teams must be made up of pupils from the same school under one Head, and all skiers must be genuine full time pupils on the roll during the Autumn Term of the school they are representing.
The race will consist of two runs over the same slalom course. The team score will be the aggregate of the best three times for each run. If less than three team members complete a run, the team will be disqualified. A disqualified team will not be eligible to race in the finals. Teams in Categories 1 will race through stubby gates and teams in Categories 2, 3 & 4 will race through full length slalom poles. If pupils in Years 3-6 race in Category 2 with older skiers, they will race on full gates.
Age Group Races in the following categories:
Category 1 - Pupils in Years 3 - 6 (racing through stubbies)
Category 2 - Pupils in Years 7 and 8
Category 3 - Pupils in Years 9 and 10
Category 4 - Pupils in Year 11 and above.
