Have you become a member of the Tasmanian SuperSchools Series? If so remember our State championships will be held at Easter (April 6-8) at the TEC. This will be your only chance to qualify for the Tasmanian Team to compete at the Australian EFA Schools Championships being held in Warwick Qld during December 07.
This series has been sponsored by Sport and Recreation Tasmania and EFA National, EFA TAS and Horseland.
Congratulations to all riders who attended the clinics and assessments during the schools holiday period. Some of the dates were at short notice and only those with email addresses were contacted. If you have changed your email address or have just come on line please send the details to the office so we can keep our records up to date.
Please remember to keep your completed assessments slips safe. When you have all slips signed follow the directions as per the directions on pages 21 and 51. The National Office will then post your certificate/s directly to you.
Many thanks to all Coaches, Assessors and clinic organisers for your time and commitment.
All Dressage Tasmania competition days will host SuperSchools classes when they run Associate classes. Watch their website for dates and venues.
ShowJumping Tasmania (Northern Branch) will also host SuperSchools classes at some competition days. Watch out for their schedules.

These courses are self paced. We have offered several free training and assessing days over the past 6 months and more will follow in June.
As registered members of these National courses you do not need to wait for a prearranged assessment day. When you have worked through your worksheets and are confident you can pass the Activity Slips please contact any one of our assessors listed below to arrange your assessment. If you need further assistance contact any one of our listed NCAS coaches (see Search - Coaches).
Groups (min 4 members) from schools can also arrange assessments. The EFA will pay for these pre arranged days.
Mrs Virginia Turner and Kim Traynor both completed the assessors course in Victoria late last year. They are available to assess (as well and train) any of our Superschools members. Please contact them direct to arrange a time.
Our National Coach Educators can also sign off your slips when you feel you are ready. Again contact them direct to arrange an appointment.
