The Sea Swift NT Surf Life Saving Championships are the NT's premier surf lifesaving sporting event. 

Each year the Champs are held at a different beach, rotating between the three NT clubs (Darwin, Mindil Beach and Gove Peninsula SLSC) and Broome SLSC, providing an opportunity for our members to showcase their skills and fitness in a fun and competitive environment.

Open to all members from u8 to Veterans (over 55). Entries are managed by your club - so get in touch with your club Director of Surf Sport or Director of Competition now. 

Don't forget, bronze qualified members must have completed the required patrol hours to be eligible to compete.
The hours must be logged between the 1 August  to 31 July the following year.
