REGISTRATION & CHECK-IN
Click here to register your team for Tribal Clash Australia 2020. Your team spot at Tribal Clash is confirmed as soon as you have completed payment. From this point on, the spot is non-refundable and non-transferable.
A few months prior to the event, you will be contacted using the email address you registered with to confirm the team name and a few other important details. Once these details have been confirmed, athlete waivers will be sent which must be completed by all registered athletes – your team will be unable to compete unless this has been done.
Teams must check in on the beach the day before the competition begins. Only one team member is required to check in the team – this should be your nominated team captain – please confirm who your team captain is for this purpose. If you are unable to check-in on the Friday evening, it is possible to make alternative arrangements to check in prior to the first event on Saturday morning.
Tribal Clash workouts are always kept secret until the night before the event, meaning that must train for the unknown and be ready for anything.
We will announce Saturday’s workouts on the Friday evening, then announce Sunday’s workouts on the Saturday evening (as per the programme above). These athlete briefings will take place in the Tribal Clash arena on the beach. Our demo team will run through the workouts and movement standards, then there will be a brief question and answer session. Workout details will be posted on our website as well as on Facebook and Instagram. Athletes must make sure that they understand what is required and how the events are scored.
We cannot answer any questions regarding the events until these athlete briefings, including whether everyone has to swim and how far, or how heavy the equipment is.
Spectators are invited to attend free of charge.
Tribal Clash is a fantastic, family-friendly experience for spectators so come along, support your team and enjoy the electric atmosphere!
Don’t forget the tribe that exhibits the greatest team spirit across the whole weekend wins the Tribal Spirit Trophy, as voted by the Tribal Clash judges. This is based on the presence and attitude of a team’s extended tribe as well as the athletes themselves, so bring as many supporters as you can and prepare to make an impact!
A link to the 2020 leaderboard will display here over the competition weekend.

TRAVEL TO WOLLONGONG
Wollongong is located just over one hour’s drive south of Sydney, reached by driving just over an hour down the M1 or taking the slightly longer and far more scenic route along the famous Grand Pacific Drive. Visitors can also travel by train from Sydney to Wollongong, arriving in around 90 minutes.
Sydney International Airport is served by daily flights to cities across Australia, as well as direct flights to destinations further afield in Oceania, Asia, the Middle East and beyond. On arrival, visitors can hire a car to travel to Wollongong or take public transport.
TRAVEL TO WOLLONGONG NORTH BEACH
There are good transport links within Wollongong including a free local bus which runs around the city centre, with a stop just a few minutes’ walk from the Tribal Clash arena on Wollongong Beach. Head for North Wollongong Surf Lifesaving Club – the event will take place on the beach just in front of this building.
Free car parking is available in the area surrounding North Wollongong Beach, with a car park opposite the Surf Life Saving Club and more parking spaces along Cliff Road. However we would recommend that competitors park elsewhere if possible as space will be limited near the beach.
Destination Wollongong suggest the following:

– Park at Stewart Street Car Park East (near Harbour Street, Wollongong) then catch the FREE Gong Shuttle Bus from Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, Burelli Street (Stop 12) to North Wollongong Beach.
