Inverloch SLSC in competition

In recent years, Inverloch SLSC has begun to compete. The club is now well represented in three areas of competition. Through the hard work of our passionate members, these areas of competition are providing all club members with a fantastic opportunity to experience a whole new aspect of what lifesaving has to offer away from beach patrols. Similarly, our members have been able to liaise with and gain many new friends within the lifesaving community at various Local, State and National Championships.

If you are interested in joining one of these teams as a competitor, coach or official, your enquiries should be directed to the following individuals:

1. Senior Summer Beach Competition

This team competes during summer months at carnivals in events such as beach sprints, flags, relays, surf swimming, board and ski paddling and multi-discipline events such as the iron and taplin relays. Competition includes both team and individual events.

2. Surfboat Competition

There are five competitors to each boat, four of these are rowing and one is the sweep or the person that steers the boat. The aim is to row out and around a designated buoy and back into the shore. The winner is the first boat to cross the finish line or for the boat to run aground.

3. Senior Winter Competition (IRB Racing)

Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) Racing consists of a number of simulated rescue events, with the aim of improving life-saving skills through competition.
