Want to ski/board for Australia at next Olympics?

If you think you have what it takes to represent Australia at the 2018 or 2022 Winter Olympics then raise your hand and your voice before April 16.

Word is after Sochi’s athlete and parent funding outcries there is an athlete funding allocation shake up in the hallways of Australia’s snow sports institutions.

Both coaches and athletes are looking nervous as to who stays and who goes.

But as always, results are what counts and results will supposedly drive both funding and team support personnel choices. So state your case if you want some financial support to get you there.

Here’s the OWIA Winter Sport Program Review and Planning Process flow chart and details on how you can apply. You can also download it in full PDF format here.
