SunSmart Surf Premiership Series

Surf Life Saving WA's SunSmart Surf Sports Season will kick off the summer with the 2016/17 SLSWA SunSmart Surf Premiership Series. Healthway is the principle sponsor of this series of competition which is designed to provide members the opportunity to maintain their skills and fitness and engage in healthy competitive and team activity. This season we have $17,500 prize money on the line for Open Athletes with the most points accumulated from the competitor’s results in their chosen discipline across the series. There’s $700 for 1st place male and female, $350 for 2nd place and $200 for 3rd place in the Board, Ski, Swim, Ironman, Sprint, Flags and 2km Run events. In addition to the Open prizes, the 1st place U14, U15 and U17 male and female competitors will receive a $100 Engine voucher, with 2nd place receiving a $75 voucher and 3rd place receiving a $50 voucher.

We have reviewed the way we deliver events and have implemented a model which aims to increase the competitive opportunities for competitors in specific age groups whilst lessening the time on the beach. We will target each event at specific disciplines such as swims, boards, beach sprints and others so that competitors have some options for participation across the season. The following lists a summary of how each type of series will be run:

  • Senior Ocean programs: U14 and U17 8am-10am, U15 and Open (U19 race as Open) 10am-12pm
  • Senior Beach programs: 7:45am-8:30am 2km Run, 8:30am-9:30am Sprints, 9:30am-10am Relays, 10am-11am Flags
  • Lifesaving programs: March Past and R&R (Junior and Senior age groups) will be run traditionally however First Aid and Champion Lifesaver will be modified to just the essential elements
  • Water Ocean Teams programs are to be confirmed, however will have an 8am start with two water arenas.
  • The Country Carnival is being run over two days. Beach events will occur at Middleton Beach on Saturday from approx. 2/3pm onwards. Water events will occur at Middleton Beach on Sunday morning (~8am-12pm) - Program TBC
