Competition carnivals are a huge part of Surf Life Saving. Not only does the competition of Surf Sports keep everyone fit, active and at the top of their game, but it brings life savers together generating a strong community atmosphere. Carnivals are held at all levels for all disciplines for all ages. There are Nipper Carnivals, Open and Masters Carnivals for Boaties, Beachies, Craft, Rescue and even a combination of each. We have carnivals within the Club, Branch, State, Country and all the way up to World Titles.

On this page, you will find links to Carnival Rules and Regulations (Carnival Information), The latest Carnival Calendar detailing the event dates and locations as well as the Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club Carnival Entry Forms.

Competition training is held throughout the year with a focus on the Surf Life Saving Season. Specialised skill work for specific disciplines as well as general physical skills are focused on during these sessions.

Each junior is encouraged to have fun and to achieve their full potential in a challenging and stimulating environment. The emphasis is not on winning, but on doing their best so that an enjoyable and successful experience for our children is achieved.

For more information regarding training please see the Surf Sports Coordinator, the Coaching Coordinator or The Nipper Activity Coordinator.
