Australia is in need of new TD’s at both National and FIS level. The most suitable candidates are usually ex-athletes who have competed at a high level, or experienced race organisers.

To become fully FIS accredited TD’s usually need to attend two seminars two years apart, with the period of gaining experience and exposure to TD work. The first seminar allows you to work as a National TD, at NON – FIS races, or as an assistant TD at FIS races. Once you have attended and meet the assessment criteria at the second seminar, you would then get accreditation as a FIS TD. In exceptional circumstances TD candidates with appropriate high level racing or race organisation experience may be fast-tracked.
Interested persons should contact:
– Andrew Walker, SSA XC TD Coordinator – 0407 072 152
– Finn Marsland, SSA XC High Performance Manager – 0408 147 940
