Coolum Beach SLSC
Surf Sports is an integral part of the culture at the club. We have competitive teams in beach events, water events, surf board riding, surf-boats, IRB, surf rescue competitions and march past events. Getting involved in surf sports is a great way to enhance your lifesaving skills, maintain health and fitness and make lifelong friends.
All surf sports related events at the club are coordinated by the Surf Sports Officer who has a number of area captains and team managers as part of the team to help coordinate the various disciplines.
Members are encouraged to first compete at the Club Championships prior to competing at Branch, State and National level.
Members who wish to compete in carnivals must be active, proficient and financial members of the club and must also have satisfied their patrol obligations as defined by Surf Life Saving Queensland.
To be eligible to compete, a member must have completed their allocated patrols and have documented 25 patrol hours within the calendar year from the 1st January to the 31st December. This requirement is less for Reserve Active and Long Service patrolling members, please contact email@example.com if you require any clarification.
As per SLSA guidelines, members who do not complete the minimum required patrol hours during this period will not be eligible for competition rights and any subsidies and club benefits may be reviewed.
