- Important — Reminder of Personal Conduct
- We wish to remind all racers, coaches, parents and spectators that appropriate personal conduct is expected at all LSERSA events. Whilst a competitive atmosphere is to be encouraged, inappropriate or unsportsmanlike behaviour will not be tolerated and can ultimately lead to sanctions, including suspension from LSERSA events. Examples of such behaviour include; equipment abuse, swearing, aggressive behaviour, discrimination of any form, heated arguments, dis-respect shown to any official or volunteer. All LSERSA events are "family friendly" environments with appropriate behaviour to be demonstrated at all times.
- Equipment Requirements
- Please note that minimum appropriate equipment and clothing rules apply at LSERSA races. You must wear suitable protection for your arms and legs including long trousers, long sleeve shirt, which must cover the midriff, and gloves. Helmets must be worn, and these must comply as a minimum to EN1077 (with a visible marking as such) and be in good condition without signs of damage. Add on items such as camera mounts, or protruding edges, spoilers or visors are not permitted. LSERSA advise the use of the manufacturers approved chin guard when racing through full gates. Ski poles with a diameter of less than 15mm must be fitted with suitable tip protectors to increase the tip diameter to 15mm. These requirements are compulsory for all racers in all groups.
- The protective qualities of all safety helmets and face guards are affected by age and use. Some older helmets and face guards that have been damaged either in racing by a fall or by other impact may no longer provide sufficient protection - even if there are no visible indications of damage. LSERSA neither specifies nor makes warranties as to the fitness for use of any particular ski helmet or face guard nor assumes any responsibilities or duties to any competitor by requiring the use of a helmet or face guard. For more information see The British Ski and Snowboard Guide to Helmets for Alpine Racing.
If you know of any LSERSA skier who has done well anywhere, or have any other news that is suitable for publication here, please email Dom Wakeling.
It's ecstasy, anguish, joy and despair. It's part of our history. It's part of our country and will be part of our future. It's theatre, art, war and love. It should be predictable, but never is. It's a feeling that can't be explained but we spend our lives explaining it. It's our religion. We do not deny it, we do not apologise for it. We know how you feel about it because we feel the same.
