Entries Set To Open For 2018/19 Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series
CASUARINA/NSW (Tuesday, August 7th, 2018): A brand new Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series is set to start with event one – of the ten-event series – kicking off at Cronulla on September 1st.
Nearly 100 competitors are expected to compete in each of the two-day events (one day events in South Australia and Tasmania), which will see some of the nation's most promising young surfers competing for a range of prizes.
Surfing Australia General Manager Partnerships, Events and Digital, Jake White said: “This national series of events forms part of our sport development pathway and offers grommets the opportunity to compete in professionally run events in a fun environment.”
“We’re thankful for Woolworth’s continued support of junior surfing in the country as naming rights partner to the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps.”
Regarded as one of the major stepping stones in the development of young Australian surfers, the 10-event Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps series caters for surfers from Under 8 to Under 14 and will be held in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia over summer.
As an added bonus, the respective winners of the Under 14 boys’ and girls’ divisions from each event will receive an invite to attend an all-expenses-paid, three-day Woolworths Surf Camp at the Surfing Australia High-Performance Centre (HPC). For the South Australian, Victorian and Tasmanian events, the Woolworths Surf Camp prize will be awarded to the highest place Under-14 Boy and Girl who reside in that respective State.
Each entrant will also receive a Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps merch item for entering.
The Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series has helped to launch the careers of many of Australia's most promising junior surfers with almost 800 children set to take part in the 2018/19 event series.
