Thanks all. It is only Interschools but all the best juniors in Oz are in the system including solo entries from all the race clubs. The boy is 10. I resisted every weekend race club this winter and we chose school rugby for winter sport instead. He was included in the ski team to make up the numbers and ended up getting the result that got them 2nd in the state.
Nolo very good advice. I have "race parent" experience from a few encounters. The boy loves any "lets go" sport and has got this far on natural talent and following me around the place and listening to the select few I let him near. He will never have the physical build to make the big technical events any sort of career but we can have some fun along the way and the bonding with the other kids in the team is pretty special. So keeping it all fun and casual and seeing what happens along the way.
Next year he may do weekend ski club but it will be with the all round ski\race\freestyle group and not the "we got all the money for racing" people.
Lets just teach him to enjoy the skiing and the atmosphere and see what happens.
Ha he is the kid in this competition that no one has ever heard of. I plan to keep it that way for a while.
