QLD Qualification Rules - from the Interschools Rules of Racing

7.7 - From the Northern NSW & QLD Championships, subject to competitive times/scores, QLD teams that place within the overall top 5 team placing’s, along with QLD individual competitors that place in the overall top ten individuals, from Divisions 1-5 in all disciplines, and Division 6 in Alpine and Ski Cross, will be eligible to race in the Australian Interschools Championships. (subject always to the discretion of the NSW/ACT Interschools Committee).

7.8 - Where the National Event is preceded by a State qualifying event, each team participating in the National Event must have one original team member from Skier Cross, Snowboard Cross, Moguls, Snowboard GS, Cross Country Freestyle and Relay, and two original team members from Alpine that qualified in the State event. Schools may enter competitors into the National event that did not compete at the Regional and/or State events as long as they are placed in a qualified team, before entries are closed. When teams do not have the required number of original members, or do not have the required additional competitors to register as a team, they will no longer qualify and cannot compete.

7.9 - For mogul competitors a minimum acceptable score (for Championship progression) will be determined by the Interschools Committee following completion of each event, and before invitations are extended to the next level of competition. Historically this has been a score which is a minimum 40% of the total attainable score (24 / 60), and is often as high as 50% of the total attainable score (30 / 60). The minimum progression score determined reflects the level of the Championships (Regional or State), the Division Level, the course conditions, and the quality of the athlete field.

7.10 - Only teams and individuals that are included on the official State and National invite lists, or have been officially advised by the NSW & ACT Interschools Committee, are eligible to enter and compete in the NSW State and / or Australian Championships.
