Ceramic Use

The following article is something that coach Richard Breese posted a few years ago about the use of ceramics for the dry slope races. A few bold statements but hopefully gives people a bit more background to the use of ceramics and the over reliance on it rather than focusing on good technique, hopefully useful for parents as well as racers.

Norfolk Ski and Boarder X

Thanks to Racer Ready for the photoLast night saw 45 racers brave the first real cold of the season over at Norfolk Snowsports Centre for the Ski and Boarder X.

There is always something special about night time races and this was no exception. 

The first part of the evening was three individual timed runs through the course and the second half everyone was split into teams for the head to head races. This resulted in some exciting racing and action.

Level 2 Officials Course

There is a Level 2 officials course taking place at the end of the month on the 28th and 29th November in Aldershot. It is a very good opportunity to learn a lot more about the running of the races, well worth attending and we are always looking for more help in the region. 

Attached are details of the course and application form. Even if you can only do one day worth looking at it. If you would like more information email chair@ersa.co.uk.
