HIGH PERFORMANCE


SLSA’s High Performance pathways program is designed to help aspiring surf lifesaving athletes reach their sporting career goals.

Supported by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and in partnership with Royal Life Saving Society Australia (RLSSA), an Australian team is selected to contest in the biennial World Lifesaving Championships and other national team competitions.

In addition to the Australian Life Saving team, there are national programs for youth aged members and elite surf boat crews.
