Aussies Day 1 Recap

Saturdy marked the first day of The Australian Surf Lifesaving Championships (commonly known as the Aussies) at Scarborough Beach and Trigg Island. This is the first time Aussies has been hosted on the western shores since 2018, and over the 9 days of competition you can expect to see over 5,500 of Australia’s best Surf Lifesaving competitors compete across 480 events.
The first group to compete this week were our U13-U14-U15 Youth competitors, with these age groups having over 1,000 competitors hitting the beach over 2 days, in tough competition for a national title.

The day started with the opening ceremony, featuring our own Milly Kok, who was given the honor of reading the Athletes Oath., and did so with grace and a big smile on her face. Alongside the Athlete oath, there was also an Officials oath read, as well as opening speeches by Surf Lifesaving Australia representatives.

In total we had 12 finalists across the beach and surf events, plus 4 medalists, which is an outstanding effort.
Congratulations to the following member medalists:

Oliver Browne – U13 Male Surf Race Champion

Billy Hawkes – U13 Male Surf Race
Tadhg Smith – U14 Male Surf Race

Macy Boisvert – U14 Female Beach Sprint

Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club acknowledges the traditional owners, the Whadjuk People of the Noongar Nation, of the beach on which we work and play. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and are grateful for their continuing connection to the land, sea and sky.
