Join LSR Today

If you are interested in joining LSR please register below.

You can apply to join as an Associate Member or as a Full Trainee Membership. Entry into LSR is by invitation after passing an assessment. Once we have your details, we'll come straight back to you with our next assessment date. Your child will be required to ski from the top and is assessed on their technical skiing skill and their ability to perform controlled parallel turns on the steep section. We ideally require a minimum of Hillend level 6/7.

Trainee Members

The regular pathway for all LSR trainees starts on a Wednesday night - Introduction to Race Training, 6 - 7.30pm. There may be occasions where a child is invited straight into Thursday nights' U10/12 or U14/16 sessions, depending on their skiing ability and/or age. Masters, U18s and U21s will be assessed and invited to join Monday night. You can view the pathways through LSR here.


All members are required to pay an annual £85 membership fee plus their associated training fees for the year: 

2019/20 Fees

  • Payment for membership and training should be made via the ClassForKids system on receipt of your invoice and in all cases before training starts. To arrange BACS transfer of funds, please follow the details at checkout (Alternative Payment methods). 
  • All members pay for the whole training year up front. New members joining LSR will be invoiced pro-rata for the remaining training blocks of the year.
  • Please note that if payment is not received by the due date, LSR reserves the right to offer the place to another member or prospective member.
  • Training costs are set by the Club’s Treasurer and agreed by the Committee each year. They are set at a ‘break-even’ level to cover the Club’s projected costs over the forthcoming year.
  • If a member is unable to train for a period of six weeks or more due to illness or injury, a partial refund may be granted provided (a) you advise of the illness/injury as soon as you are aware that it might result in extended absence, and in all cases before the end of the term in which the absence started, and (b) you can provide a doctor’s note or other medical evidence. Any refund is entirely at the Committee’s discretion.
  • If a member withdraws from the Club, the Committee will only consider a partial refund of fees in exceptional circumstances. Any refund is entirely at the Committee’s discretion, if the training space is re-allocated to another trainee.
