Surf Sports & Competition

A new Level 1 Competition Official’s Course has been planned for Saturday, 8 October 2016 with the venue most likely to be at the Branch HQ at Vuko Place, Warriewood. It will be a one-day course commencing approximately 9:00am and finishing around 3:00pm.

The Club will cover the costs of $95 on the proviso that the attendee agrees to do the practical part of the course at Carnivals this season and in the future. Morning teas and lunch/drinks are provided as part of the package.

Those interested should contact SNB Branch Office direct on 9913 8066 and speak to either Marcial or Nick to book their place. Should there be any general enquiries on the course place contact Gary Cook on either Email [email protected] or Mobile 0418 296 180.

The Club needs additional Carnival Officials to cover those who are no longer able to assist as well as covering our increasing number of competitors and spreading the load of longer serving officials.

Being active is part of the Australian way of life. The Surf Life Saving movement encourages members to be active, to do more and to be more.

Our sport forms a significant component of who we are as an organisation. From nipper to elite Ironman and Ironwoman, all our members have the opportunity to participate in local, regional, state, national and international surf sports competitions. Unlike other sports, the purpose of our competitions is to improve lifesaving skills to keep our beaches safe. There are many disciplines to cater for everyone’s interest. From swimming events to board or ski paddling as well as events that don’t even require you to get your toes wet such as beach sprints and beach flags events. Off the beach, surf lifesavers are also required to refine their swimming skills in the pool and participate in pool rescue competitions.
