In addition a parent/family education evening  which is being conducted by SSA on 11th September in Jindabyne.  TSRC fully supports the SSA Skills Testing and Physical Literacy days, and recommends that all TSRC athletes attend. These activities form part of our training program – there will not be alternate TSRC training available on these days. The Skills Assessment will take a full day whereas the Physical Literacy will be an afternoon session preceded by on-snow training in the morning. Age groups are split over two days for both programs eg. for the Skills Assessment U16/FIS are rostered on Tuesday 17th with standard training for U14/U12 on that day, vice versa for the second day. Please do not hesitate to contact us at info@thredboskiracing.com if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of the above – or any aspect of the forth coming TSRC season. The weather report tells us its snowing in Thredbo – with the forecast for some cold nights ahead –  so hopefully the right conditions for the snow guns to really fire up.

President’s Preseason News

TSRC AGM 6th May Thank you to all the members who came along to the AGM on Sunday 6th May. It was a great turnout, an informative meeting and we enjoyed meeting a large cohort of new members. The meeting welcomed, as guests, members of the SSA “team”, and Adam Hosie, Snow Sports General Manager of KT. Mick Branch (SSA Alpine Director), Shawn Fleming (SSA Ski Cross Coach), Lachlan Clark (SSA National Alpine Committee Chair) , Rebecca Clark (SSA Alpine Administration) and Daniel Bosco (NSW Snowsports Chair) represented SSA. Mick provided an excellent overview of the SSA Alpine and Ski Cross Review and Roadmap. There was robust discussion and explanation for members’ queries about the new plan. Mick emphasised that TSRC has the staff and facilities to implement the pathway successfully. A special thanks to Charlotte Murphy, a TSRC athlete, who expressed her support for the new Roadmap. Her interpretation of its benefits vs shortcomings of the preceding system provided us all with much food for thought. The SSA Alpine and Ski Cross Review is essential reading for all alpine athletes and their parents and is available on the SSA website. Daniel Bosco spoke about unification, and along with Rebecca Clark their intention to engage with the NSW Universities regarding assessment of athletes’ suitability for “extra ATAR points” as elite athletes. Richard Davis, Club Captain and Joe Draxl, Head Coach, supported by the TSRC Committee, have already been working closely with Mick and Shawn to implement the strategic plan’s recommendations in our 2018 training programme. If you have any questions on the SSA Roadmap and its implications for TSRC please do not hesitate to  contact...
