Tannum Sands prepared for Moore challenges

SURF LIFE SAVING: Tannum Sands will have a massive representation at this weekend's Branch Surf Life Saving Championships at Moore Park in Bundaberg.

Tannum Sands Surf Life Savings Club head coach John Andrews also hopes the club's dominance continues in conditions which are forecast to be wet and windy.

"We have 64 juniors competing this weekend at Moore Park," he said.

"We have won the Branch Championships for the past eight years."

The coach is confident there will be some good outcomes, but some of the younger athletes will have the inter-club experience for the first time.

"I'm confident we will get some good results, however this time round our under-8, U9s and U10s are a bit green," Andrews said.

"I'm expecting some challenging conditions considering the swell and wind predicted for this weekend."

That's something Andrews believes will suit his team.

"We are strong in the surf and we have some 'beachies' that are primed," he said.

Andrews said he will use this Moore Park event as preparation for the State Titles on the Gold Coast next month.

"This completion is super important for our club collectively," he said of this weekend's challenge.

"We want a strong performance as a team."

The pool rescue events commenced last night while the ocean and beach action is on today and tomorrow.
