Junior Competitions

The 2017/18 cal­en­dar is cur­rently being revised by SLSWA so we are unable to list car­ni­vals at this stage.


All com­pe­ti­tion age junior mem­bers (under 11 to under 13) will be required to pos­sess their own board this sea­son.

Under 10 Com­pet­ing mem­bers will use foamies, club bor­rowed or pri­vately owned, and do not need to lease these at this stage.

If you do not wish to pur­chase your own board for your child, you will be able to “Lease” a club board, at no cost. We will not be charg­ing a fee for leas­ing the board, only a bond/deposit, which will be returned to you upon return of the board in good con­di­tion. Any dam­age costs incurred at the time of the board’s return will be taken out of the bond. If you have repaired the dam­age your­self and the board is in rea­son­able con­di­tion upon return then the full bond will be returned.


If your child is not in pos­ses­sion of their own board or a club leased board on club days or com­pe­ti­tion days, then club boards will be made avail­able to them for their use, but these will only be the FOAM nip­per boards, not fibre­glass, regard­less of age.

PLEASE NOTE: the fol­low­ing dates are avail­able for Board Allo­ca­tions:

More dates may be made avail­able if needed, after these dates.


Train­ing is avail­able mid week to all Nip­pers – U10s to U13s in a vari­ety of surf life­sav­ing dis­ci­plines includ­ing board pad­dling and beach events – at Mul­laloo Beach. All train­ing ses­sions are split into sep­a­rate tiers that run at the same time to cater for all skill lev­els.

Please note that last season’s tier 4 board train­ing par­tic­i­pants (com­pet­i­tive juniors), your train­ing will be start­ing in the sec­ond week of the Octo­ber school hol­i­days, so make sure you have organ­ised a board by then. You must also have com­pleted your sea­son pro­fi­ciency swim, days and times can be found in the newslet­ter or on the club cal­en­dar on the web­site prior to attend­ing these ses­sions.
