Medibank Wave Warriors 2015/16

The Medibank Wave Warriors is coming soon to a beach near you.

Future Ironmen and Ironwomen, get ready to make a splash! Medibank Wave Warriors is a fun and social surf lifesaving challenge for U9s to U15s, designed to get young athletes involved in an iconic Australian sport.

Created by Ironman champion Zane Holmes, the award winning event is renowned for its positive and welcoming atmosphere. The focus is on encouraging everyone to get out there and do their best – teaching kids to work together, challenge themselves and celebrate all levels of success.

“It’s a unique beach event for junior lifesavers,” Zane says. “Our Wave Warriors come together from around Australia to push their personal best and beyond in an exciting head to head competition.”

Relays, beach sprints, board races, surf races and mini Ironman challenges get kids moving in and out of the water, with plenty of chances to shine.
