Ski­ing pro­gram is pop­u­lar at Mans­field Secondary Col­lege

Mansfield Courier - - Youth News & Views -

MANS­FIELD Secondary Col­lege’s Snows­ports pro­gram com­menced the first week back for term three, with 82 en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pants trav­el­ling to Mt Buller for the first day of the 10 week pro­gram.

They were ably sup­ported by 14 staff and par­ents, who all joined in with equal en­thu­si­asm.

While the moun­tain served up less than favourable weather conditions, all staff and stu­dents made the most of the opened ter­rain and worked well to de­velop their skills across the ski­ing and snow­board­ing dis­ci­plines.

Skill de­vel­op­ment and safety in our Alpine en­vi­ron­ment are fo­cal points of the Snows­ports pro­gram.

Many stu­dents are look­ing for­ward to test­ing their skills against other stu­dents from across the state when they com­pete in the up­com­ing In­ter­schools com­pe­ti­tion to be held at Mt Buller in com­ing weeks.

Cross coun­try ski­ing events will be held at Mt Buller on Sun­day, Au­gust 4, fol­lowed by the alpine events com­menc­ing with the pri­mary schools’ com­pe­ti­tion on Mon­day, Au­gust 19; secondary schools events start­ing on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 21 through to Sun­day, Au­gust 25.

Stu­dents are able to com­pete across all snow­board­ing and ski­ing dis­ci­plines in skier cross, board­er­cross, gi­ant slalom, moguls and slopestyle events.

Stu­dents and staff are all look­ing for­ward to a great sea­son where fun, fit­ness, safety and par­tic­i­pa­tion un­der­pin the col­lege’s much cel­e­brated Snows­ports pro­gram.
