To be eligible for the Series Competition you must have participated in at least 12 of the possible 18 events (in the same event category). It is your best 12 events that determine your final points tally. The more events you take part in, the better your chances of winning or placing in your age group or overall event category.
Age Group Competition
Your age group will be calculated by yourÂ ageÂ as at the 1st of November 2016.
1st – 3rd Male & Female place-getters in each age category (listed below) will be awarded with Age Group Medals at the Series Awards Prize Giving on Tuesday 28th March.
The Inflatable and Surfboard SUP event categories are open event categories, and therefore do not have an Age Group Competition, only an Overall Competition.
The 1st-3rd Overall Male & Female place-getters in each of the event categoriesÂ (listed below) will be awarded with Overall Medals at the Series Awards Prize Giving on Tuesday 28th March 2017.
In the 2016-17Â Harcourts Cooper & Co Beach Series season there will be no minimum number of participants required in your event category to activateÂ these OverallÂ Medals.
