Yanchep SLSC Competition
Yanchep SLSC support and encourage Yanchep Nippers (U8-13), Youth (U14-19), opens & masters (30+) who wish to participate at Surf Sport carnivals & competitions.
There are a wide variety of events to participate in, whether it be in the water or on the beach that take place at various times throughout the year at various locations in the Perth Metro & some regional centres.
As carnivals come closer to date, we will publish a list of events that are available to participate in.
Carnivals entry fees are low cost & vary, which then allow you to enter into as many events within the carnival program.
Entries can be made by submitting an email to Matt, firstname.lastname@example.org prior to closing date of event.
TEAM APP will be used to communicate, so please upload this via the App Store and search for Yanchep SLSC.
