Description

Event Overview

The 2022 TSB New Zealand Surf Life Saving Championships represents the pinnacle event of the season with 1500 athletes anticipated to attend the iconic event. From Masters who have lost track of the number of Nationals they have attended to 14 year olds experiencing the event for the first time, Nationals caters to all levels of participation and almost all aspects of Surf Life Saving. You will see New Zealand representatives, canoes, surf boat crews, surf swimmers, beach sprinters, ski and board paddlers all having a crack at being the next National Champion!

Returning to New Brighton Beach, we invite you to celebrate the very best of Surf Life Savers as our members compete for their friends and against their fellow athletes.

 

Important information:

While we are planning for the best, there is still significant uncertainty and risk associated with delivering 2022 TSB Nationals. Detailed information can be found here.

Under the COVID Protection Framework RED setting, Events and Gatherings are restricted to 100 people (this excludes officials and other event volunteers) in a single ‘defined space’. However, there can be multiple, separated ‘defined spaces’ at a location.

With respect to TSB Nationals this means we can operate multiple arenas on the beach as long as they are separated and only have 100 people in them. However, there can be no intermingling between arenas and each arena must stay as it is for the entire duration of the event, with no new groups formed.

This means competitors will be restricted to one age/gender arena for all individual & team events for the entire competition. The outcome of this is:

  • Individuals can only be entered into and compete in their eligible age group.
  • Each Age/gender group will be limited to 100 entries.
  • Teams can only be made up of one age group - no competing up to fill spaces in other age groups. There will now be U15 team events.
  • Equipment e.g. Boards & Skis cannot be shared between different Arenas
  • Arenas will be separated into single age & gender groups (8 groups for beach & small craft)
  • It is highly unlikely that we will have the resources to operate 8 small craft & 2 boat/canoe arenas simultaneously, therefore our current approach is to run morning (female) & afternoon (male) sessions in 4 water Arenas with staggered access times in beach arenas and 2 boat/canoe Arenas also with morning (female) & afternoon (male) sessions.
  • This will effectively halve the time available to deliver the traditional programme and therefore potentially halve the number of events able to be delivered. It will also significantly decrease the rest time between heats/semis/finals and between different disciplines.

Once initial entries have been received, the Event Management Committee will be able provide a draft programme to clubs.
