Here is the link to the 2014/15 Call to Officials

For those of you that are new this season the link above is a survey for Surf Officials to apply and express availability for events being held in 2014/15 from Local Carnivals through to National Championship events. The survey link will close on the 30 June 2014.  Following the close of the survey the information will be sent to relevant Staff for processing and we will update the SLSNZ Officials contacts list with your details. National Events positions will be communicated by the end of July 2014.

Event referees and fees for the 2013/14 season

The Event Referees and event fees have all been confirmed for the 2013/14 season.

Notably, we will move to a flat fee for New Zealand Surf Life Saving Championships. As we recognise this would be a significant increase to canoe and boat crews, for this season any athlete competing only in boats or only canoes is discounted $45 (resulting in a $200/crew fee, which is the same as NRCs).

The Event Referees and entry fees for nationally co-ordinated events will be:


NZ Pool Champs

NZ Surf Boat Series

BP Surf Rescue North Island Champs

Oceans 14

BP Surf Rescue South Island Champs

NZ Masters Surf Life Saving Champs

NZ Surf Life Saving Champs

BP Surf Rescue NZ Champs
