Thank you for entering the Cape Town Trials for the Junior Team to compete in the 2016 Billabong South African National Championships to be held at Jeffreys Bay 5 – 9 October.
Please can you ensure that you have paid your R200 Cape Town Surfriders Membership and the entry fee for the Junior Trials R350. Please note if you paid an entry fee of R350 for the Open/U20 Trials earlier this year you have to pay a further R350 for the Junior Trials.
Trial 1 will take place this Saturday 23rd July and Trial 2 will take place this Sunday 24th July. We have brought Trial 2 forward so as to avoid a clash with the WP Longboard Champs. We plan to do the 3rd Trial on the weekend 13/14th August. This will be confirmed nearer the time.
The Heats and Schedule
We will confirm the venue on Facebook, by email and on the website on Friday, but it is likely to be an 8 o’clock start at Long Beach.
Team Size : 5 x U17 Boys 5 x U15 Boys 3 x U13 Boys 3 x U17 Girls 3x U15 Girls 2 x U13 Girls
Please note that the Team selection criteria for South African National Championships has been changed by Surfing South Africa. The selection criteria is now very similar to the selection criteria for the Cape Town Team that competes at the SA Grom Games. Every District Team needs to have 5 Development Surfers. To fulfil this commitment to transformation in sport the selectors will not necessarily be able to select the top 5 surfers based on points from the Trials. The selection committee reserves the right to make the final selection with the aim of putting out the strongest Cape Town Team whilst fulfilling the transformation requirements. Please do contact Cape Town Surfing if you require further explanation.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
