The goal of the Varsity College SA Schools Program is to create the next generation of surfski paddlers. We aim to do this in 3 ways:
• Introduce new younger paddlers to surfski
• Identify and nurture talent
• Create an event for young paddlers to call their own
The program tries to achieve these goals through a number of initiatives around the series. With the backing Varsity College and FNB we have been able to create a program that will grow the sport in the future.
The Series partners with the Surfskischool to provide coaching clinics free of charge to schools. These clinics happen in Durban for 5 weeks in February and March. Any school or parent that would like some free coaching for their kids just mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make a booking.
The Varsity College SA Schools Champs is now in its 8th year. We are proud of the events growth and competition level being the only one of its kind in the world. The event is run as part of Race 10 of the series where all u18 still at school are given their own start and race of for the title of SA Schools Champions. This will take place on 10th March 2017
We look forward to hosting paddlers from around the country at our clinics and SA Schools events in 2017.
