WHAT IS THE HIGH PERFORMANCE SQUAD?

The SLSNZ High Performance Squad (‘HP Squad’) is where New Zealand representative teams are generally selected.  Selection into the HP Squad is made according to the SLSNZ Squads and New Zealand Team Selection Policy.

Enquiries can be directed to the SLSNZ High Performance Manager Tanya.hamilton@surflifesaving.org.nz Mob 0279472612.

OCEAN & BEACH UPDATES AND INFORMATION

High Performance Squad Selection Applications:

Applications for Selection for ocean and beach athletes are now open.

  • Applications close Friday 21st January 5pm.

All current HP Squad ocean and beach athletes will need to re-apply here for selection. (https://slsnz.surveymonkey.com/r/HHQ22DJ)

New athlete application for selection can be made here. ( https://slsnz.surveymonkey.com/r/HHRBFYK)

Selection Events:

Athletes and coaches should refer to the Selection Policy Section 10.0 for Selection Events.

As events have been impacted by Government restrictions at very short notice, selectors wish to see athletes at as many events as possible to assist selections. If for example, Nationals and ERCs are postponed or cancelled, major ‘fall back’ selection events could include NRCs and Whangamata Classic.

Similarly, for Australian based athletes, a range of Australian surf lifesaving events are considered for determining selection.

Selection Announcements:

The selection announcement for ocean and beach athletes is planned for post NZ Nationals however; this is subject to change pending COVID disruption and border restrictions. Communication will follow should any changes be required.

Selection Panel

Scott Bartlett, Michelle Mitchell, John Creighton & Daniel Grant
