Term 2 2018: PROGRAM FULL (applications for waiting list only)


Following the enormous success of our 2016 and 2017 programs, The Saltwater Institute will soon be opening applications for it's first 2018 program. This will run for 7 weeks beginning Monday 16th April to Friday 1st June. 

The Saltwater Institute provides an opportunity for students to pursue their love of surfing while embracing educational excellence. It delivers a unique, extended program of high performance surf coaching in the mornings followed by our custom designed “In the Pipeline” curriculum.

The coaching component, run by Surfing Victoria, will encompass valuable, consistent time in the water, high level fitness training, individual program development, equipment refinement, equipment trials, video analysis and expert tuition. This will be followed by an afternoon curriculum program that is surfing and coastal focused while maintaining national education standards. Classes will continue to be held at Surfcoast Secondary College, with a bus provided from the beach to class. 

A curriculum will be delivered that harnesses the students’ interests with units such as Wind, Waves and Motion, Coastal Formation, Surfboard Technology and Surfers’ Nutrition Growth and Strength. 

The program is open to school years 7-10. DON'T MISS OUT, NUMBERS CAPPED AT 16.

Our goal is to create an environment that fosters positivity, curiosity, independence, respect for the environment, perseverance and the pursuit of excellence.
