Program for Youth, Seniors & Masters
1. Sunday ‘Season’ Activities
Run weekly with comp points for youth & elected seniors.
Sunday 7:30am – 8:45am
A 3-part structure replicated each week consisting of Water, Beach and Relay/Team activities, with a rotating focus and even overall coverage of the main carnival competition formats. Seniors and masters may elect to participate in an open ‘senior’ club championship points system which are tallied through the year to reward consistency and performance. This is a no-pressure, no-obligation initiative to maximise participation, but young ‘seniors’ and youth ‘cadets’ are likely to respond well to the continuation of a points system and indeed is generally a club expectation
2. Beach, Sprints, Flags, 1km & 2km Run
3. Relay / Team
2. All-Discipline Activities
Run on an irregular or occasional basis.
Saturday 6:30am – 8:00am
Saturday 8:00am – 11:00am
Sunday 7:30am – 8:45am
Sees the integration of water craft and lifesaving activities on an irregular basis (eg up to 3 over the season) which are generally common in metropolitan / Perth competitions and which integrate and promote core water craft lifesaving skills and experience, in particular within the fields of IRB Racing and the Lifesavers Challenge. Based on demand and weather conditions, and requiring the support of minimum levels of separate training for bronzed members. May include indoor first aid sessions or components. May be combined with the core weekly activities eg in an ‘All Discipline’ relay combining IRB and boat race legs with traditional swim, board, and ski legs. Aims to builds on the strength of youth and seniors training and skills in water craft, first aid and surf sports, and creates opportunities for the expansion of Albany SLSC’s competition portfolio generally over 2-3 years.
