VSCC Entry Rules & Categories

This page contains all relevant information about entry for the Victorian Schools Cycling Competitions. Please take the time to read the relevant policies and guideline sheets as there are slight variations to entry rules for the three disciplines.


How do I get involved?

The VSCC and VICS is open to all students across Victoria and parts of NSW or South Australia. Students competing in the VSCC and VICS race as individuals. Some schools enter large groups of students and the entry is completed by a teacher. If you school is not involved in the competition you can enter directly, you will still represent your school. Cycling Victoria doesn't need permission from the school for you to enter - you just need to be able to attend the event.

Categories:

Apart from age and gender there are two categories in the VSCC: Racing and Novice.

The 'Racing' category is for students with a membership to Cycling Australia, MTB Australia or BMX Australia. 

The 'Novice' category is for students with no cycling membership* - insurance is provided through Cycling Australia temporary cover.

The 'All Abilities' category is open to any student from mainstream or specialist school who has an intellectual disability. This field will be run as one grade but may be separated depending on entry numbers.

*Students with membership may enter Novice if a) they have held their license for 6 months or less on the day of the zone event or b) they are racing in a different discipline, i.e. a BMXA member racing in Road or MTB can choose Racing or Novice.
