Three young surf life savers from northern NSW have been rewarded for their stellar early-season form with selection in the inaugural Youth Pathway Cup team, who will contest at Sydney’s Freshwater Beach on Australia Day.

The Youth Pathway Cup is Surf Life Saving’s newest representative competition and will allow the brightest 14 and 15-year-olds to test their skills against Australia’s best.

Lily O’Sullivan (Cudgen Headland) will feature in the U/14s, while Nathan Mackenzie and Maisie Miller, both from Lennox Head-Alstonville, have been selected in the U/15 squad.

In addition Scott McCartney, also from Cudgen Headland, has been named the team’s inaugural head coach after taking charge of the NSW Country squad, which contested the Interstate Challenge last week.

All of the mainland states will field teams of 20 for this new surf sport contest.
