About Ice Racing New South Wales



Australian Ice Racing (AIR)

AIR Inc's Board of Directors include Directors elected by the State Delegates (two representatives from each State Member) and the Chair of the Athletes Commission.

AIR is affiliated with the International Skating Union.

Ice Racing New South Wales Inc (IRNSW) (formerly The Ice Speed Skating Association of NSW Inc), in association with the equivalent organisations in Victoria and Queensland, is affiliated with Australian Ice Racing Inc.

IRNSW is the representative body for all ice racing clubs in NSW. Its tasks are set out in its Constitution

One of those tasks is to keep up to date with the latest rules for racing and to notify all skaters of any racing rule changes. You can read a brief version of the current racing rules created by the NSW Chief Referee, Andrew Morgan, in Rules for beginners.

Another task is to organise specific race meetings during the year. A member of the committee is the Event Co-ordinator and the event co-ordinator, along with other volunteers (appointed by the event co-ordinator) organises both internal NSW events as well as running national events on behalf of Australian Ice Racing Inc.

The association is responsible for maintaining the racing records for NSW and you can see the current records at Records.

The executive committee consists of 6 members. Meetings are held monthly. Each affiliated club is invited to nominate two delegates to participate in the meeting. It is the club delegate's responsibility to inform their club members of the IRNSW's plans and activities.

Several NSW Government bodies support Ice Racing New South Wales Inc. This may be by way of workshops that enable committee members to keep up to date with the latest developments on various subjects from raising funds to presentation skills and to make available health professionals to visit a club and talk to club members (the skaters).

IRNSW acknowledges and appreciates the support provided by the NSW Sports Federation and the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation. This assistance consists of:

  • Financial assistance for the development of the sport through various programs and events.
  • Advice and information on various aspects of the sport.
  • Sport development
  • Coaching development
  • Talent development
  • Sport safety with programs for participation and organiser codes of behaviour.
