Our History

The Scots Race has been running since 1995 and is one of the largest races of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. The Scots Race is an important race fixture on the snowsports calendar and is traditionally one of the first races of the season. With the aim of serving the entire snowsports community, The Scots Race welcomes participants from all over New South Wales and Australia.

The Scots Race is often the first race experience for many competitors, some of whom have gone on to reach the highest level. The Scots Race was the first to introduce a Division 6 category for children in Year 2 and younger, which provides a wonderful opportunity to experience competition in a fun environment.

Snowsports at Scots

Snowsports at Scots began in 1980 with on-snow activities which evolved to the College being represented for the first time in the NSW Interschools Snowsports Competition in 1988.

From those early days more and more boys every year have represented Scots in snowsports competitions. Today, The Scots College has one of the largest and most successful school Snowsports teams in Australia. Our Senior and Preparatory School teams are currently the Interschools Snowsports National Championship title holders for Senior and Primary boys school teams.

The College offers a variety of Snowsports programs. Over the years there has been increased focus on development pathways including on and off snow programs. Focal to The Scots College Snowsports pathway is The Scots College Snowsports Academy, an on-snow campus which provides opportunities for a full academic and Snowsports training program for groups of Scots Senior School students.

The Scots College Snowsports Association supports the College’s snowsports activities through a variety of social events, fundraisers and community events such as the annual Scots Race and the Secondhand Clothing and Equipment Sale.
