Officials, many of whom are volunteers, play a critical role in young athletes achieving their goals and dreams.
Snow Sports NZ sanctions over 100 competitions annually and provides training for Race Organising Committees (ROCs) to ensure that competitions run efficiently and fairly by the rules.
Those competitions would not be possible without the dedicated officials and other competition volunteers who help organise and run events. Volunteers staff the race office, help in the start and finish areas, work as gate keepers and assist with timing, slipping and course setup. They are responsible for the safe conduct of the event and the accurate timing, judging and scoring. They also play a key role in ensuring that the spirit of the sport and competition is maintained. In the end, officials are responsible for providing the best possible experience for our athletes.
Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the country. Please contact your local club if you would like to help with a Snow Sports NZ race or competition.
