Surf Sports is an
integral part of Surf Life Saving
Surf sports competitors are skilled and
proficient surf lifesavers. Encouraging involvement in surf
sports and offering opportunities to compete for both elite and
grassroots athletes, helps provide Clubs with a steady stream of
fit and motivated patrolling members.
Major surf sports events such as the Harcourts Northern
Region Surf Life Saving Championships bring hundreds of members
together to enjoy the true spirit of competition and camaraderie,
in many cases forming friendships which last a lifetime.
Each year events including Club, Regional, National, Pool
Rescue and IRB Championships involve many volunteers, months of
preparation and rely on the skills and experience of hundreds of
officials, coaches and team managers to be a success.
Encompassing all different
disciplines, we have a comprehensive framework of training and
support for everyone from kids competing in Junior Surf through to
adults and masters.
Athletes from age 7-13 participate in Junior Surf Sports events
and once an athlete has turned 14 and attained their Surf Lifeguard
Award they can then compete at Surf Sports Events.
