Surf Sport forms a key component of who we are as a club. All our members have the opportunity to participate in surf sports training and competitions with the motivating factor to improve fitness and core lifesaving skills to keep our beach safe. Competition is available from nippers through to masters (over 30) competitors. More information can be found on each of the areas of Surf Sports in the tabs below.
Whether you aspire to be a more competent lifesaver or represent your State or Country, Surf Sports at Coogee SLSC has pathways to help you achieve your goals. We have coaches in all Surf Sports disciplines and hold regular training sessions.
For all inquiries, please contact the Competitor Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
All members who wish to compete at any State or Australian Championship must be financial, proficient and carry out their rostered patrol duties for the club for which they are competing.
The minimum number of personal patrol hours for an Active member must not be less than twenty-five (25) hours for the preceding calendar year (i.e. 1st January through to 31st December). The minimum requirement for Active Reserve members must not be less than twelve (12) hours for the preceding calendar year. Long Service members are exempt. In addition to the above, members must observe the SLSA Constitution and the Coogee SLSC patrol regulations which will specify a minimum level of patrol hours and other requirements that entitle a member to compete. A member that is behind in their rostered patrols may be considered to be in patrol default and this situation needs to be corrected prior to the member being entered into any surf lifesaving competition.
Regardless of the minimum competition requirements set by SLSA, all rostered members are still required to meet Coogee SLSC’s patrol expectations, including attendance at all rostered patrols. Arranging a substitute is acceptable if a member wishes to compete at a carnival, so long as the substitute turns up to the patrol, and the member competing is not in patrol default for their total hours for that particular date.
