  • The first day for season 2015 is Saturday June 27 for an 8.30am start. We meet at Falls Creek Race Club in the Gateway complex. Please be early as new groups take some time to organise. Please have your child dressed and organised prior to 8.30am at Gateway.

    As far as preparing your children, please make sure your children have:

    1. Appropriate ski helmet correctly fitted, hard ear preferable.
    2. Correctly fitted boots, skis and poles for age and ability. Skis and boards to be well maintained with good edges. Boots should be the correct size, not a size too big. If in doubt see a reputable boot fitter.
    3. Warm gloves, face protection, thermals, sunscreen.
    4. Snack in pocket, not lollies or junk food.
    5. A phone (if your child has one).
    6. Falls Creek Race Club jacket.
  • Your child will be placed in their group, their coach will exchange phone numbers with you and inform you of the meeting place for lunch pick up. Children and coaches will depart and get out on the hill as soon as possible and get to know the kids.

    After children and coaches depart we ask parents to stay behind for a short Q & A with our Program Director about what to expect over the coming weeks and of course, they are there to answer any of your questions.
