Surf Life Saving in Australia is recognised as the most effective surf rescue service in the world, and Surf Sports is the main division of surf life saving that provides the key training for improving life saving skills, fitness and motivation for all our volunteer life savers.
This summer our junior, senior and masters surf lifesavers will line up across the state to take on the surf and sand, and it promises to be a most exciting season of sport on the beach. COB SLSC coaches are fully qualified and NCSA Accredited Surf Sport Instructors who conduct comprehensive training programs for all surf sport disciplines.
A comprehensive competition training program covering the following disciplines is available to members for competition fitness and skill development.
New members are always welcome, but please contact the appropriate coach for more details below and program requirements before hand.
See Backwash Brief Newsletter for current training program.
SLSWA Surf Sport Events
Surf Sports competitions play a pivotal role in the surf lifesaving movement and are unique in that, unlike any sport, their intent is to aid in developing the skills necessary to carry out Surf Life Saving’s core purpose, saving lives on our beaches. Every year thousands of SLSWA members use their lifesaving skills in a competitive sporting environment. The 2019 -2020 Surf Sports season has been a great success with carnivals spanning the year; at club, state and national level; giving our surf lifesavers the opportunity to use their lifesaving skills in a competitive sporting environment across a range of disciplines including Ironman, lifesaving, surfboats, pool rescue and IRB racing.
Refer to the Club calendar for the events scheduled for the 2021– 2022 SLSWA surf sports competition season.
Surf Life Saving is unique in that it provides opportunities for members to participate in the broadest range of sport activities. Members young and old, season after season, challenge themselves in Trophy Events that have a long and proud tradition in our club. All u14, u15, u17, u19, Senior, Master and Life Members who are financial are eligible to participate and challenge themselves in what is a great season of Surf Sports Trophy Events.
