SURF SPORTS SUNSHINE COAST TRAINING CAMP REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN
The Point Leo Surf Sports Program aims to develop our members’ skills, fitness and confidence in surf lifesaving related sports. This year we are running a dedicated training camp for nippers through to masters.
Over the week long camp you will have the opportunity to be coached by some of the countries best athletes including Jamo Porter, Lana Rogers, Jett Kenny, Cooper Williams and Alexandra Headlands Head Coach Jack Hansen. Coaching caters for all standards of club members wanting to improve their surf sport skills, have fun, make new friends and for interested athletes work on high level training/competition skills. Coaching will be focussed on board, ski, swim and iron.
The program includes fully programmed daily coaching sessions run by elite coaches, transport fees for one board per participant, and green fees for a barefoot bowls social event. Optional social events such as a team welcome dinner, bbq dinner at the barefoot bowls event and daily social swims for parents.
Our base will be Alexandra Headlands SLSC (known by the locals at ‘Alex’) which is an outstanding facility situated directly on the beach with a large indoor and outdoor area with great views.
Starts: Monday 27 September
Ends: Friday 1 October
