We are holding a bring and buy sale at the Alpine Centre in Southampton on 11 September between 10:00 and 12:00.  It is a chance or you to sell any child/junior ski kit that you may have in etc back of your cupboard and also to pick up a bargain to fill that gaping hole in the cupboard.....

You can sell any children/junior clothing or equipment except helmets,  which we are not allowed to sell.  If you have a helmet that you want to sell,  you can bring it along on the day and see if anyone is interested in buying from your directly.

Its very simple to sell - get a sellers number from Rachel (,  complete the sellers sheet with the items that you want to sell and label everything up with your sellers number and item number from the sellers sheet.

SASA is running the sale so that those with unwanted kit can make some money and those who need kit can get what they need without having to spend a vast amount on new kit.  We are not looking to make money out of this sale,  but if you do want to donate a percentage of the sale amount,  the money will always be most welcome.  You can choose to donate a percentage of an item's sale on the seller's list.

If you have any items that you are happy to donate, we will be happy to ate those - any money made will go to the club.

Finally,  the more kit that we have,  the better the sale,  so please have a good search and get as much on sale as possible!

Any questions,  please email Rachel (

Inter Region Event - Stoke, Sunday 3 July

posted 23 May 2016, 13:41 by Rachel Harrison-smith

This year the Snowsport England Inter Region event is to be held at Stoke on Sunday the 3rd July, the day after the GBR race. We would like to enter at least two teams for the event and although the invitation has not yet been published, in previous years teams consisted of 7 racers so we are likely to need at least 14 people including 4 females. To qualify for the team you must have raced in or be entered for at least one Snowsport South race this year (including the Southampton Club National) and must be Snowsport England registered with your first named club’s first named region being Snowsport South. Teams will be picked based on seed points in the most recent  oBARTS list which is likely to be 2016.2. This year we are planning to have some race shirts made for the event so we will need some time to sort this out. To this end we are looking for applications to be submitted by the 31st May.


Please do not confuse this event with the Tri Region event which is being held at Welwyn on the 15th October. The invitation for this will be sent out in August.


If you are interested in taking part in the inter region, please email me at including SSE registration number, year of birth and shirt size.
