Newsletter v.1. 2013
Hi all snowboarding lovers from the HSi committee!
Just like the snow, we are a little late this year and we have been busy!
Lots to tell you: new SSA pathway accreditation, expanded programs, Member booking platform and new member cards and more!
2012 was the founding year of the club and we are pleased to be able to continue building on the great work and efforts contributed by all members and supporters!
The 2012 season began with a target of 60 members in our first year and we finished the year with a grand total of over 200, making HSi probably the largest registered dedicated snowboard club in Australia!
A great big thank you for a massive year goes to the riders, supporters and all commercial and business partners!
The club and the coaching program would not be possible without the hard work put in by club volunteers, coaches, Mt Hotham company and all businesses who support the club and program.
EXPANDED ATHLETE PROGRAMS and SSA ACCREDITATION
HSi is super stoked to announce our program has been accredited as part
of the SSA’s Ski and Snowboard Australia Athlete Pathways program.
This makes the HSi program an official channel provider into Olympic and national selection squads.
HSi also gets access to SSA facilities, expert specialist coaches and marketing assistance. A great big big “well done” to Neil and coaching team for getting this accreditation.
Expanded Coaching programs
HSi professional snowboard coaches have expanded our tailored programs for rider development:
GROM SQUAD: 8-11 years: development program for junior riders.
SBX: 12 years+: Boarder Cross athlete training program
FREESTYLE: 12+ years: Park and Free Style focused program

Winner of the FYVE snowboard
Mel Wilson from Mider won the first draw for the awesome FYVE Snowboard donated by FYVE and Richard Neville from Snowmonkey but as one of Hotham Snowboarders Inc’s foundation sponsors she kindly offered the board back for a redraw. Thanks Mel and Mider!
Marcus Toop, singer/guitarist extraordinaire at Mt Hotham who plays in venues such as Swindlers, Zirky’s and the Isobar, also signed up as a member of Hotham Snowboarders Inc and became the lucky winner of the FYVE snowboard in the second draw. The following morning Marcus ventured down to Snowmonkey at Jack Frost, bought his first pair of boots and bindings and was on the Hotham pow by 10am.

Winner of the Burton Board Bag
Kyle Mankey signed up for his membership by email and became the lucky winner of one of the two cool Burton bags that was donated by Shane, Paul and the crew at Burton. Being in Melbourne and unable to attend our launch, Kyle was stoked to hear that he’d won when he called in to Swindlers a few days later to collect his hoodie, stickers and Swindlers discount wrist band.
Andy Phillips who is is well know and liked around Hotham Central won the other Burton Bag that was raffled. Thanks Burton!
