SSE are currently looking at the feasibility of putting on three coaches to take athletes to the Landgraaf races and bring them back . It is probable if Iit goes ahead the coaches would leave from the following three areas : Hemel , Manchester and Norfolk . These races are a superb mid step to racing on a mountain and a great way for all new under 14’s to secure some early season BASS points . The project is in its infancy but it is likely we would look to take any athlete who falls into the under 14 age group in 2016 and above unaccompanied . All athletes who fall into under 12 and below would need to travel with a parent . Snow Sport England would provide snow coaches for any athletes not associated with academies or clubs who are already attending the event .
We would piggy back onto this initiative and If we can get enough interest from Hemel members the coach could almost be for our sole use. We would anticipate taking a van to transport the gear and maybe one or two cars. At present cost is unknown but when Hemel last went we had a superb time and costs were good value.
At this stage this is only an idea and if we proceed would depend on how much interest there is at this early stage . If we have enough interest we will then proceed to stage two and start working out approximate costings .If you are interested in this idea please email firstname.lastname@example.org or see her at a training session with the name and age of your child and the preferred pick up area from the three listed.
