The 2017 Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota High School Teams Challenge will be held on South Bar Beach, Newcastle February 14th and 15th, 2017. The contest features both boys and girls divisions. This event is open to all NSW high schools.
This is a great event for surfers who get to enjoy the experience of a contest in a team format. A unique feature of this event is that teams finishing within the allocated heat time score bonus points. This advantage is a major component to a team’s success. Each team will surf twice over the two (2) to ensure consistent effort is rewarded.
Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota General Manager, Kim Burton said, “I am particularly pleased Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota can back the High Schools event in 2017. The surfers who do well in this contest have shown time and time again they become tomorrow’s champs on the state, national and international stages. But more importantly than helping with a framework for tomorrow’s champions. The High Schools Challenge will provide an opportunity for the youngsters, their teachers and their parents to get together and share a love of one of the healthiest pursuits on the planet.”
Surfest organiser Warren Smith said, “In 2016 more schools than ever before entered this contest. We warmly welcome Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota as sponsor of this unique contest which continues to grow as a much anticipated contest among surfers attending high school. Surfest is proud to partner with the Kim Burton and Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota. This contest is a vital part of the Surfest festival as this contest opens up the surfing career pathway for young, motivated surfers.”
