Snow Australia cancel Interschools events in NSW in early July

Snow Australia released a statement this afternoon regarding the Interschools Events for 2020 in the current coronavirus climate.

The organisation has chosen to cancel all New South Wales and Queensland Interschools Events planned for the July school holiday period (July 4 to July 19). 

“Snow Australia places the safety, health and well-being of its competitors, volunteers, parents and school communities as our prime focus” says the statement.

“We recognise the pressures that schools are currently experiencing and supporting Principals, School Snowsports Coordinators, Staff and Students is our highest priority.”

There are currently no planned changes to the Victorian Interschools Events.

Interschools championships

Snow Australia Interschools and Perisher continue to plan for the late July 2020 Southern NSW and ACT Interschools Championships. A formal announcement of either the hosting or the cancellation of this late July event will occur during May, if not before.

Snow Australia Interschools and Thredbo also continue to plan for the August 2020 NSW/ACT/QLD State Interschool Championships. A formal announcement of either the hosting or the cancellation of this August event will occur on or before the end of July. 

The qualification process to the NSW/ACT/QLD State Event, will be developed and published by mid-April.
