Surfing GB and the Team GB management, with support of main sponsors Calypso Soft Drinks, are excited to announce the selection processes in place for the 2015 Team GB squad and travelling team for the 2015 World Junior Surfing Games. Taking experience from recent campaigns we have listed key points in the format below to ensure clarity and understanding.

We aim to develop a squad that generates and embraces the competitive environment and breeds elite performers, drawing upon all available resources to create champion surfers. We are building towards a system that will enable British Surfers to fulfil their enormous potential and represent our Nation with honour.

1)      Rankings taken from UKPST, NATIONAL FEDERATION & SGB events is to continue with no change from 2013/2014.

2)      Wild card entries are to continue with no change from 2014.

  • Criteria to include video evidence, images and competition results.

3)      Selection of the representing team will be made following the training camp (location tbc) in the February school half term 2015.

  • This is a change from 2014, NO RESERVES will be taken to the 2015 WJSG.
  • Selection will be made by the Team GB Juniors coaching staff, management team & head judge, with approval of selection and processes made by SGB directors.

4)      The 2015 GB Junior Squad will be announced following the appointment of the 2015 coaching and management team (expected mid-December 2014).

5)      Contracts are to be signed by all squad Surfers following selection for the squad, this is to include representation agreement and any sponsorship agreements.

6)      A high level ISA judge will accompany the squad in the training camp and at other available opportunities.

8)      Attendance of training and competition will continue to be self-funded by surfers. A review of fundraising efforts should take place. Parents and supporters of the Team GB Juniors will continue to lead fundraising with the support of Surfing GB. Surfing GB will continue to work on bringing sponsors on board.

Following the resignation of John Ellis (Manager) in November 2014 Surfing GB are advertising for a management and coaching team to complement the Head Coach Lloyd Cole.
