Opportunity to Make a Difference
Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club is creating a unique opportunity for South Australian athletes to compete on the national stage through the ‘Seacliff Surf Sport Academy’. Competitive surf lifesaving is iconic to Australia. Traditionally the sport has been dominated by Queensland competitors. We seek to change that imbalance by creating a fund that nurtures talent from the earliest age and has a structure capable of retaining elite talent in South Australia. South Australia is an extremely fertile nursery for elite sportsmen and women; There is simply an inadequate pathway through exposure to competition to retain our most elite athletes. Without the ability to be competitive, most of our South Australian athletes will either migrate interstate or leave the sport.
Our Commitment to Lifesaving
Community service is at the very core of the surf lifesaving movement. This academy instils and re-enforces the importance of the commitment.
