The 2018 Victorian Interschools Event rules have been published. All new rules or adjustments are highlighted in blue in the rule document. Below is a summary of changes for 2018.
Division 6 Alpine Race Suits
Race suits are permitted in Divisions 1-5 Alpine events. Race suits are however not permitted in Division 6 Alpine events.
Ski and Snowboard Cross clothing start protocol
The staff member (normally the assistant chief of course) responsible for the start area line up will assess if competitors clothing meets the Jacket and Pants clothing rules. If they do not they will be told to change to compliant clothing before being permitted to start the race. Failure to change into compliant clothing will result in a disqualification prior to the start.
Slopestyle top 15 qualification to Nationals
From the State Slopestyle Championships, up to the top fifteen individual competitors from Division’s 1-3, having received a minimum acceptable score, will be eligible to compete in the Australian Interschools Championships. There will be no team invites. For State Slopestyle competitors a minimum acceptable score (for National Championship progression) will be determined by the Interschools Committee following the 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. No National Championship points will be awarded to Slopestyle event results and only individual medals will be awarded at the National Event.
Ski & Snowboard Australia is committed to protecting the health and well-being of everyone that participates in snowsports. It is for this reason that SSA has introduced the concussion guidelines in conjunction with HeadSmart with the aim of providing information and advice for non-medical people who are involved with skiing and snowboarding at any level. These guidelines apply to the care of snowsports participants from beginners and intermediates through to recreational experts and sub-elite or elite competitors. Everyone’s brain is equally important and deserves the benefit of concussion management according to current international scientific guidelines.
Additionally, the guideline allows for the Ski and Snowboard Australia community to access the same high standards of care that are available to full-time professional athletes. Our common goal is to achieve a successful return to sport, with full recovery and readiness for competition, minimising short-term risks and long-term health consequences. It is written for the benefits of athletes, parents, teachers, coaches, peers, and any program directors or support staff.
