Tasmanian Surf Sports Development Squad

Wednesday 26 February 2020

The SLST Surf Sports Executive Committee are excited to announce the formation of a development program that allows Tasmanian surf sports athletes the opportunity to progress their development.

The Tasmanian Surf Sports Development Squad (TSSDS) will see the brightest surf sports athletes from across the state selected to enter a program aimed at maximising their growth in the sport with the aim of producing the future champions. The squad will be announced at the Tasmanian Junior and Senior Championships each year and consist of 6-8 male and female athletes from each age category from U13 to Open. Note: current U12 selected as next seasons U13s. This large squad will be provided with structured training and coaching opportunities to enhance their development. TSSDS members will be expected to attend both regional and state wide training camps together with discipline specific events that will assist their progression.

The TSSDS will form the basis of Tasmanian representative teams to be selected. These may include the Youth Pathway Cup, Interstate Championships or other national events once they have been announced by SLSA. Other interstate competition opportunities will also be explored.

Tasmanians living interstate will considered for the older age categories but our priority is to develop Tasmanian residing athletes.
