The skiing program in Term 3 includes the GGS Cup, the Victorian Cross Country Interschools, the Victorian Snowsports Interschools and the Australian Interschools (if competitors qualify). To compete in these events competitors should be at least of a confident intermediate standard and be able to ski a blue run comfortably, except for Moguls where a high standard is required. A training day for primary students is organised on the day prior to the GGS Cup. Age eligibility does vary, so please consult the Online Handbook for further information: www.ggssnowsports.wordpress.com

GGS has an excellent Cross Country Ski Team and is a great opportunity for students to learn a new discipline. The Snowsports Club provides the equipment and training opportunities.

Families participating in the GGS Junior Skiing Program will be charged a levy of $200, per family, to cover the costs associated with organising and staffing these events on the mountain, subsidised training and team dinner and trophies. This levy is an annual charge that will cover participation in all or any of these events and is per family. The amount will be added to your school account in Term 3.

Through the School’s fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF), donations to Geelong Grammar Snowsports are tax deductible.
The Club does need funds to continue to provide equipment, improved coaching facilities, social functions for our parents and supporters, and trophies/badges for our players. This can only occur with your donations and we are grateful for any help you may be able to provide.

So please show your support for Snowsports at Geelong Grammar by donating today via this link.
