Competition is not compulsory for any member.  It is up to each individual up to the time of the event commencing as to whether they wish to participate.  There is no expectation or requirement for any member to compete.  All members are however, encouraged to participate in any carnival or events that they wish to represent the club in.  We strongly support a “have a go” policy and support any individual who wishes to put their training towards a competitive environment.  


The Under 14 and Under 15 group now form the “Youth” category.  Under 14 and Under 15’s will continue to race individual races in their age group and team events can be a combination of an U14 and an U15, gender specific.  We would like to officially welcome our new Under 14’s to the senior ranks and we hope you enjoy your season.  We all work together and will support you in your future endeavours.  The senior competition run a little differently to junior carnivals with the biggest change in the nomination process.  Bonnie Richardson is our nomination officer and does an amazing job with entering all nominations for all SLSSA events. 


The nomination process is a time consuming process and the carnival entry fees are a significant cost to the club.  We have developed a nomination form, which enables Bonnie to collect your input as to what events/carnivals you wish to compete at.  The booking form is a link that can be accessed on your phone/iPad/tablet or computer and every “booking” made will result in an email being sent both to Bonnie and the member booking.  This confirms your requests have been received.  The link is published on FB in the West Beach Training Page, or please contact Bonnie via email at

Once nominated, competitors will be required to check their entries for any errors or inaccuracies.  It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure you are nominated.

Entry Fees

Entry fees for the events are determined by Surf Life Saving South Australia and these are a significant cost to the club.  Event entry fees will be covered by WBSLSC for those competitors who wish to join the Athlete Reward Program 2017-2018. For those members who do not wish to join the ARP, the event entry costs will club will invoice you for any events that you have participated in.
