Need some more details? Please read the notes below and if you are not sure about something then have a look at our FAQ’s page or Contact Us. By registering you agree to receive some information and offers from our partners and sponsors. Privacy Statement.
Your Team and Team Name
The Waterline Challenge® is designed for teams of 3 – 10 people. A team can be made up of anyone, friends, family members, work mates, people who share a particular interest… anyone! (Please read our FAQ’s if anyone is under 18 years old.) Plan your team challenge location distance and method of travel. Pick the charity you want to support from the Charities page and how much money you plan to raise.
You can call your team whatever you like, however for Surf Life Saving teams and Rotary/Rotaract Clubs, the name need to be as follows to ensures that funds are tracked by club. The format is as follows: SLSA ClubName TeamName (no spaces in ClubName e.g. NorthBondi, however Team Name can have spaces). Examples: SLSA NorthBondi Nippers Aces, SLSA SurfersParadise Dolphins 1. For Rotary/Rotaract clubs the format is Rotary Sydney Team1 etc.
Choose you team Capitan and remember, the team Capitan must register first so they can also register the team name, then everyone else just quotes the name when they register.
Planning your Team Challenge
The Waterline Challenge® is for all the participating teams to accumulate a total distance large enough to circumnavigate Australia. In that spirit each team challenge should follow the coast or a waterway of some kind. The team’s method of travel can either be by the water’s edge (walking, running, riding etc.) or in the water (swimming, paddling, sailing etc.). The choice is yours but you need to consider the ability of your team members and as part of your registration let us know so we can assess any risks. Finally how will you raise your money: by personal donations, sponsorship or other. Each person should aim to raise at least $200.

The donation site will also collect your personal registration fee so you will need your credit card details. Finally all funds raised by your team as part of the challenge will be collected via the donation site and sent to the appropriate charities. Do not send any money to Waterline Challenge.
