SSSA Schools Alpine

Last Monday (20th February) entry for the SSSA indoor primary schools race on 15th March filled within 24 hours.   As a result many primary schools have missed out on the opportunity to race this winter and we have received a deluge of requests for more opportunity to race.

In an effort to accommodate this demand the SSSA committee has decided to lay on another Indoor Primary Schools Race event on Wed 26th April which is currently open to schools that have not got teams entered on 15th March.

If the SSSA find this extra primary schools race on 26th April has not filled up by 20th March, we will then open entry up to ALL primary schools to enter additional teams if they wish.
