This week we play APS Winter Season Round 7 versus AB Paterson College and continue to prepare for the APS Finals Day on 3 June (the 1st XV Rugby Grand Final will have a delayed start at 4.00pm at Bond University).

Toby Wilson, Life Saving

Fred Xu, Table Tennis

Fred competed last weekend in the Under 21 and Under 18 Brisbane Table Tennis titles and won both tournaments.

Toby Wilson, Lifesaving

Toby has been selected for the 2016 Lifesaving World Championships will be held in the cities of Eindhoven and Noordwijk in the Netherlands from 1 to 18 September. Australia will be represented by a Youth and Open team, comprising of athletes from both Surf Life Saving Australia and Royal Life Saving Society Australia.

The team has been chosen from a High Performance Youth squad of 49 that was assembled in the wake of the Australian Life Saving Team’s 2014 world championships campaign. Recent performances at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships on the Sunshine Coast were a key component of the final selection process. This was combined with results at national Pool Lifesaving Championships over the past 12 months. Swimming ace Toby (Northcliffe SLSC) sealed his seat on the plane on the back of his performances at last weekend’s pool rescue trials at Southport. He also won the Open Aussie Ocean Swim at Mooloolaba last month.

The Youth Australian Life Saving Team will assemble for a squad camp on the Gold Coast on 3 June in a key lead-up to the Lifesaving World Championships.
