Carnival Nominations

Competition Information

The current Queensland State Carnival Competition Calendar is accessible here.    

It is important that all competitors and parents / guardians of those U18 members understand the Dicky Beach Surf Club – Competitor Policy which covers costs / non-attendance and assistance expectations for members to be able to compete in carnivals.

Carnivals consist of individual / team or a combination of events.  To understand the team selection process for junior activities or other areas of the club, please refer to the relevant policy.

It is a requirement for club members (excluding boat crews) wishing to compete to self-nominate for a carnival prior to the club closing date if they wish to participate in the respective carnival as an individual or within a team.   (Team carnivals require an earlier closure date from the carnival event to allow coaches to finalise teams from those members wishing to attend the carnival.)  Volunteers require time to process the nomination and enter them onto the respective carnival database.  If you have difficulties with a nomination, please contact the team manger for the competition area of the club or the Club Administrator (

Carnival Fees
