Competition

For the competition calendar please see Tab Calendar 2016-2017

Being fit is a major part of surf life saving and the lifestyle that surrounds it. The Cottesloe SLSC members are lucky to have one of the best stretches of coast in Western Australia to utilise for exercise and training. There are numerous options when it comes to getting started:

• Using the gym, change room and surrounding facilities
• Paddling a surf ski or a racing mal (a surf board)
• Rowing a surf boat
• Beach sprints and flags
• Racing in the inflatable rescue boat (IRB or rubber ducky)

There are also a range of opportunities to compete over the course of the season:

• Club and social competition held at the club every Sunday from October to March
• State competition, culminating in the State Titles in February
• National competition, culminating in the National Titles in March
• Other events beyond surf lifesaving

Our members have access to a fully equipped gymnasium. Depending on your membership, you can access the gym via a fob key obtained from the Club’s administration office.

Equipment is available in each of the disciplines. For further information, see the individual pages for surf boards, surf skis and boards.

The Club’s training program will be available for download in the near future. Please note it is advisable to contact the individual session leader to confirm details prior to attending your first training session to ensure details are correct.

Before competing, all competitors need to ensure that they are financial and have completed the required number of patrol hours to be able to compete in Club and State Championships.  Active members are required to complete 16 hours of rostered patrol time in the current season (penalty patrol hours do not count towards competition pre-requisites in accordance with SLSA rules).
