Regional Athletes Get A Head Start

Regional athletes and coaches from the South Coast will get the opportunity to learn from the best during the Coaching the Coast Clinic, to be held at Mollymook SLSC on 29 & 30 November 2014.

Surf Life Saving NSW’s Coaching the Coast Regional Development Clinic is the base for stimulating grass roots surf sports in regional areas of New South Wales and providing elite coaching to rural athletes.

Highly regarded surf sports coaches Peter Kirkwood (water) and Sean Hendry (beach) will be coaching the clinic participants and will provide athletes of all levels with an opportunity to improve technique and race skills across all disciplines in beach and water events.

The aim of the program is to assist athletes in regional areas to reach their full potential by exposing them to some of the leading coaches in NSW and Australia, and the start of the SLSNSW high performance development pathway.

SLSNSW Surf Sports Manager, Shane Knight is very excited about the program and the opportunities it will provide to regional athletes and coaches.

“With the right coaching and support, some of these athletes from the South and Far South Coast really do have the potential to become our future surf sports stars.

“Through these Coaching the Coast Clinics, Surf Life Saving NSW is able to provide real opportunities for regional athletes to learn from some of the best and most experienced minds in surf sports in the country,” said Mr Knight.
