BRITISH SKI ACADEMY CHAMPIONSHIPS

13-14 March 2024

The British Ski Academy will host the BRITISH SKI ACADEMY CHAMPIONSHIPS in CHAMPÉRY, SWITZERLAND

Team Captains’ Meetings

The first TCM will take place at 1800 on 10th March 2024 via Zoom. Bibs will be available at the finish area of each day’s event. Race bibs for all events will be collected at the end of the second run in the finish area. Bibs not returned after the race will result in a £80 penalty to the guardian of the athlete. As soon as possible after each day’s racing we will hold the TCM inside the Portes du Soleil Restaurant. After Tuesday’s and Thursday’s races we will hold an award ceremony outside the restaurant for the British Interschoools and BSA Champs respectively.

Race Entry Details

All British competitors must either be registered with their respective Home Nation (Snowsport Scotland, England or Wales) or have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian. All competitors must have a current insurance policy that covers them for ski racing. The Organising Committee may require proof of insurance such as a valid governing body race licence or an independent certificate of insurance. No insurance = No Racing All entries should be made via the official online entry system on www.britskiacad.org.uk/events Fees = £60 per day / £200 for all four days. An Entry List will be published on www.gbski.com. Bulletins and Zoom links will be circulated via GBSki, BSA social media pages and, from 8 March, an event WhatsApp group.

Online entries will close on 28.02.2024

Refunds

In the case of withdrawal from any event due to injury (prior to the championships) refunds will be available on production of a doctor’s letter. Refunds will not be available for adverse weather or snow conditions that result in the cancellation of races. The organisers & hill team will do their upmost to ensure that all of the races are run in full.

Volunteers and Support

Whilst we have a team travelling from the UK for the race, we do require additional help to run the races smoothly. The resort provide gatekeepers so we only require a handful of parents to help with roles such as finish board and marshalling. Please email: malcolm@britskiacad.org.uk

Catsuits for U10/U12 if the weather is fine

The TCM will consider the weather forecast each day and decide whether or not to allow the U10/U12s to compete in catsuits. Be prepared. If the weather turns foul, Mini racers arriving at the start in catsuits will not be permitted to leave the gate. Racers are reminded that helmets for giant slalom must conform to GB rules, i.e. no soft sides, soft vents, and remove slalom chin guard.

Conduct

The resort have asked that competitors ski in a safe manner on the public pistes, or with due regard for the safety and enjoyment of other hill users. In particular please slow down well before joining the lift queue. Racers caught skiing dangerously may be excluded from the races. Keep ski-passes with you. No ticket, no lift. And finally, please, no littering.
