Information for Schools
Are you a teacher? Are you interested in skiing? Are you interested in how competitive skiing can improve your pupils' skiing?
ESSkiA (English Schools' Ski Association) aims to encourage skiing as a sport within schools, and wants to encourage as many students as possible to enjoy it at home and abroad. Each year they hold a series of Regional Qualifiers and the English Schools Championships, leading to selection for the British Schools Championships. See the ESSkiA web site for details. Note that schools from the LSERSA region compete in several different ESSkiA regional qualifiers.
Kent & Surrey Schools
Each year LSERSA runs the Kent Schools Championship Races on behalf of RAKS(s) (Race Association of Kent Schools (Skiing)) and revived the Surrey Schools Championship races in 2010. The benefit of these events over ESSkiA is that they are open to non member schools, including Primary Schools, thus making it more inclusive.
The London Schools Championships began in 2014.
If you would like to know more about ESSkiA, RAKS(s) and other Skiing Activities for Schools, please contact Gwenderlyne Southall (ESSkiA representative), Andy Proudlove (Sports Development Officer (Kent)), Chris Macaulay Sports Development Officer (Surrey)) or Sally Woods (Race Secretary).
