COMPETITION

I am so excited about another great year of competition. The momentum is building, and I can’t wait to see our teams bigger, better and smashing more goals. Another season brings more opportunities for the competition team to grow and increase interest. This is not possible without the key help from Team Managers and Coaches.

The following are the positions available for the upcoming season.

Team Manager x 3
One required per Team:
Summer Junior competition team
Summer Senior Competition team
Winter IRB Competition Team
The Team Manager is responsible for the logistical aspects of competition endeavours. You will work with David Morris to ensure the team is organised and ready for competition, including communicating effectively with athletes, parents and coaches.

Team Coach x 3
One per Team:
Summer Junior Competition team
Summer Senior Competition team
The Team Coach is responsible for the learning and developing skills required for competition. You will need to hold a current LSV appropriate level qualifications for Active Membership and Level 1 coaching qualifications relevant to lifesaving. However, if you are interested in completing your coach’s qualification, please reach out as we would be happy to support you to gain the relevant qualification.

Carnival Officials
Competitions cannot run without the help of officials. Officials can participate in various activities from judging lanes, starting races, helping set up courses etc. Athletes cannot compete without a specific amount of volunteer officials from each club, so we must have enough so our teams can compete. If you are interested in acquiring your official qualification, please contact David Morris.
