Snow Sports NZ's community of dedicated officials, many of whom are volunteers, are our greatest asset. As an Official helping to organize and run events, you play a critical role in supporting young athletes to achieve their goals and dreams. 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.
Snow Sports NZ sanctions over 100 competitions annually and provides education programmes and mentoring to ensure that competitions are run efficiently and fairly by the rules.
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.
