Our Vision 

‘Leaders in Sport Development and Sports Performance’ 

NSW Snowsport’s vision embraces:

  • A platform of increasing broad-based ‘grass roots’ level participation in programs and events through the subcommittees, clubs and our growing and world-class Interschools program.
  • Highly effective talent identification and development programs, along with excellent sub-elite programs aiming to produce a steady flow of talented elite athletes moving along the ‘athlete pathways’ to the NSW Institute of Sport and to National and International training and competition level.
  • Provision and support of facilities and infrastructure to assist the growth and development of the sport.
  • Development of education and support for coaches, instructors, volunteers, official and administrators to ensure the achievement of our vision.
  • Focus on gender equity, and encouragement of participation at all levels by members of identified disadvantaged groups.
  • Increase the public profile of snowsports as part of a healthy, interesting and diverse lifestyle.

The vision is underpinned by ensuring the organization has a sound framework of policies, governance, and compliance in order for the sub-committees can devote their time and energy to their operational work.
