Freers Beach will be home to Round 3 of the 2020/21 SLST Statewide Junior Carnivals following a joint bid by Port Sorell SLSC and Devonport SLSC.
When Surf Life Saving Tasmania sought expressions of interest to host the statewide carnivals, the neighbouring clubs saw an opportunity to work together to bring a round of the Senior and Junior Carnivals to the area, whilst further enhancing inter-club relationships and cooperation.
With support from SLST, Port Sorell SLSC and Devonport SLSC submitted a joint expression of interest which was recently signed off by the SLST Surf Sports Executive Committee.
Port Sorell SLSC will host the Junior Carnival on Saturday 13th February 2021, with Devonport SLSC hosting the Senior Carnival on Sunday 14th February.
Port Sorell SLSC last hosted a junior carnival three years ago, in 2018.
Over the coming months, the clubs will work closely together to plan the events and provide resources and logistical support across the two event venues.
