New Zealand Representative Events


The New Zealand Representative Strategy has been developed following the Surf Sport Blue Sky Review held in 2014.  The pinnacle event for Surf Life Saving New Zealand is the World Lifesaving Championships and the representative event format has been developed to create a step in the sport pathway that assists Coaches, Manager, Officials, Selectors and Athletes to develop towards national representative honours.
