The 2012 ERSA Summer season is very close to starting and with the success of ERSA over the past year we have yet another busy time ahead of us. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into the planning over the winter and pre-season. During the summer season we also have many jobs that need doing.
After a mixed start to the winter season, a win at the BARSCS, illness at Andorra with the GB team and then a back injury at Bormio, Meg has finally come through to complete a race and gain 2nd place in GS at the Inter Schools Championships in Les Houches. The Inter Schools proved a useful race to see if the break from training and painful physio had paid off. At the end of the same week she and the BSA crew were off to Villars, Switzerland for the Aiglon School Cup. Here Megs was back on form adding a 1st in the GS and a 2nd in the SL.
We would like to welcome Zaini hats on board for the ERSA races. They design and produce bright, baggy and colourful beanie hats as worn by Ben Kilner, Fin Bremner, Alain and Noel Baxter, Chemmy Alcott and many other snowsports stars.
This year there are five club nationals taking place in the region and which hope that as many of you will be able to support them. ERSA is sponsoring a GS event which will take place after each club national and the more club nationals you take part in the better the chance of individuals winning or your club. Full details can be found here.
- SSE are currently writing the Sport England13-17 plan to submit to Sport England for our funding for this time. We realise there are a lot of surveys but please know it is to help shape the future of snowsport in this country.
