Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships Change of Location

March 19, 2024

Surf Life Saving Queensland has confirmed that in response to continuing poor conditions and forecasted swell and wind, the 2024 Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships will now be hosted at North Kirra instead of Burleigh Heads Mowbray Park.

In accordance with our contingency plans and safety and emergency framework, event organisers have assessed the current conditions as well as the long range forecasts for Burleigh, and determined that all water events and beach events will be moved to North Kirra SLSC starting Friday 22 March.  As with all events, the start of competition is contingent upon daily water safety risk assessments.

The 1km and 2km Beach Run events that will be held on Thursday 21 March will be conducted at Burleigh Heads Mowbray SLSC.

The safety of the competitors and officials remains the priority for organisers with conditions and regular updates to be provided over the coming days.

At this stage the timetable of events will remain unchanged and provided later today via the SLSQ website www.lifesaving.com.au.

Surf Life Saving Queensland has contingency plans in place to ensure that the event is held in the safest possible environment for its competitors.

Event organisers are closely monitoring the situation and are committed to providing the most accurate information to competitors, officials and spectators as soon as it is available. Surf Life Saving Queensland will ensure that competitors, officials, the media and the public are kept up to date with the latest competition information via its website at www.lifesaving.com.au and SLSQ Social Media Channels.
