It is with great excitement we can today announce a new and exciting partnership with Discovery Sports Performance as part of our Junior High Performance initiative. Discovery offered up two full Sports Scholarships (one female, one male) with a value of over $15,000 to be activated at their Sorell training facility located at the new sports centre.

Surfing Tasmania went out to a list of our best young competitive surfers with an application invitation. Congrats to the WINNERS Sienna Lawrence and Marvin Freeman.

Lead Sports Scientist at Discovery Sports Performance, Taylah Purton, said: ” At DSP we’re super excited to be partnering with Surfing Tasmania to bring a high performance experience to their athletes. Our Scholarship initiative is something I’m really looking forward to, and can’t wait to see the positive changes these kids make to benefit their surfing careers!”
