Surf Sports

Surf Sports competition is a great way to keep fit, have fun and support your club at the same time. Cooks Hill are active in most areas of carnival competition and have a proud record of carnival achievements. Our Nipper team’s are consistently placing in the top two at the Hunter Branch Championships and have placed 3rd at the NSW State AGE Championships twice, in 2015-16 and again in 2017-18.

Cooks Hill have a strong competitor team from our Age (Nipper), Open & Masters categories.We encourage our members to compete at HSLS Branch Championships, out of Branch Surf Sport Series (where relevant) SLSNSW Championships and SLSA Championships. AGE (Nippers) are currently only contested at Branch and State level.

Every season we, as a club, send teams to these events along with supporters and parents. Our teams are among some of the strongest and well supported in surf life saving and certainly past results support this. There are five categories of competition, Swim area, Craft area, Beach Area, IRB and Surf Boats.  CHSLSC, currently fields teams in all categories and have a long and successful history across the State since the 1920’s.

For our Senior Patrolling members, you must complete your patrolling hours in order to compete in Surf Sports. The patrol hour regulations are enforceable by the club and SLSA. For precise and exact amount of hours required by SLSA, the relevant circulars can be found on the SLSA website or contact your sectional captain.
