Please remember to renew your Snowsport Scotland Membership by 31st October 2017

When your child enters the U14 age category (ie anyone born 2005 or older), they need to have a competitor registration number in order to enter a seeded race – whether on snow or mat.
That number is issued by your Home Nation – ie for us, Snowsport Scotland.
Therefore you apply to become a member of Snowsport Scotland.
Competitor registration is currently £35 for the year (free to U12’s).

Your competitor reg number will be a 5 digit number beginning with a ‘3’.
This is the number you will use on race entries.
Don’t confuse this with your membership number which will begin with ME.

Contact Emma Devine or Veronica Morris at Snowsport Scotland.
