ASRL Newsletter

Newsletter #63 - June 2016
This newsletter will carry information on:
    1. National Team Selection Event
    2. ASRL Open 2017
National Team Selection Event (NTSE) Process and Notification:

These key dates are important:
The NTSE will be held on the weekend of 17/18 Dec
    • Actual details still being worked on
    • Location TBC but it will be in Sydney
Background to chosen dates:
  • SLSNZ will this year be hosting the Test Match and Development Crews Series
  • 12 months ago SLSNZ and SLSA signed an agreement for the hosting of this now annual event where each host country is responsible for setting the date and location of the event 
  • Accordingly SLSNZ advised last year that their forward program was set in place and “the test date will be on the 4th February 2016 at Waihi Beach in conjunction with our North Island Surf Boat Championships”
  • The original ASRL plan was to select the team at the Manly Carnival but when the date of 4 Feb was made known to us it makes a Jan selection date unachievable
  • After the 4 Australian Teams are selected SLSA then need time to organise Air travel, Accommodation, Vehicle Hire, Blazers, general Team Outfitting while at the same time SLSNZ need to find and organise the loan of suitable boats for our 4 Aussie crews to race in
  • On top of that our crews may need time to organise family and time off work
  • Everyone will understand that this can’t all be achieved in a few short weeks
  • The ASRL then reverted back to a pre-Christmas date of 17/18 Dec
  • We are aware that travelling crews to the NTSE will require a tight program of quality races to make the travel rewarding and that is what we are currently working towards
  • As in previous years each crew wanting to be considered to be invited into the selection event will need to complete a SLSA nomination Form that will be opened up and available early in the next season. This will be advised through the SLSA website, National/State Circulars as well as again via the ASRL website and social media outlets
Teams to be Selected:
      The Australian Team will consist of an:
  • Open Female: full test team status including Australian Blazer and Numbers Australian Cap
  • Open Male; full test team status including Australian Blazer and Numbers Australian Cap
  • Under 23 Female: Development squad status without the Blazer and Cap
  • Under 23 Male: Development squad status without the Blazer and Cap
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to represent your country. It is open to all crews and by signing the SLSA Nomination Form you are committing if selected to travel and compete in New Zealand on the 4 February 2017
2017 ASRL Open:
Taking into consideration issues like:
  • Where the Australian Championship is being held
  • Where the NSW Championship is being held
  • Contractual agreement with DNSW
  • Proximity to major airport
  • Availability of accommodation
  • Host Surf Club with capability and enthusiasm to work in delivering such a large event
The decision has been taken to return to: Shellharbour for the 2017 season
Dates will be Friday 17 to Sunday 19 February
This notification will allow competitors and officials time to log the dates into the diary
