These sessions are generally held directly in front of the Cudgen Surf Club but will be moved between venues from time to time to suit conditions and the training program. Changes will be advised via a Snr club training app (please contact Scott on 0424 668 442).

All participants must have a hi-vis rash vest and bring along their own water bottle and goggles. We are fortunate to have a very experienced coaching group this season who will be rolling out a new training program.



This training is held on the athletics track at Walter Peate Oval, which is located off Murphys Road next to the Cudgen Leagues club in North Kingscliff. The training is delivered by Phil Newton who is a level 4 Australian accredited athletics coach. Participants must where runners (take spikes if they have them), take their own water bottle and towel to stretch on. Parents are to advise Phil upon arrival that they are with Cudgen Headland SLSC and ensure that Phil signs you on to the club register.
