East Regions Surf Lifesaving Competition


The East Regions Surf Lifesaving Competition took place on Saturday 8 September at Sea Palling in Norfolk.  

For all the students involved it was their first taste of competition at this level, and involved competitors travelling from as far away as Broadstairs in Kent.

There were just two age-groups for Juniors; Nippers (7-12 year olds) and Youth (12-16 years old).  There were a number of different disciplines to complete, designed to test the various attributes required for Surf Lifesaving.  Some of the events were completed as an individual, as a pair, and others as a team with other members of Waveney Surf Lifesaving Club.  The students achieved the following results:

Ben Every (Nippers)

1st Run-Swim-Run

2nd Sprint Relay

Joshua Stephens (Youth)

1st Tube Rescue

2nd Flags

2nd Board Rescue

3rd Beach Sprint

Samuel Stephens (Youth)

1st Tube Rescue

2nd Beach Sprint

3rd Board Race

3rd Run-Swim-Run

Owen Webster (Youth)

1st Beach Relay

2nd Run-Swim-Run

Joab Carr (Youth)

1st Board Rescue

These are very commendable results with all the students involved having at least another year in their respective age-groups.  Their thoughts now turn to completing winter training and looking forward to Nationals next summer in Poole.
