Junior Surf

The Junior Surf Programme is an integral part of surf club activity. It  is about learning new skills, gaining confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. Children between 7-13  years participate in organised activity that ensures they are educated in surf safety as well as confident to undertake training for their Surf Lifeguard Award at age 14.                                                                                  

Strategic Objectives

  • Encourage children to participate in and enjoy surfing and surf lifesaving activity
  • Assist children to develop and improve their surfing and surf lifesaving knowledge and skills
  • Improve the self image of children by developing self-confidence and social interaction skills
  • Involve parents and interested members of the community as leaders, coaches and administrators

Northern Region clubs conduct their Junior Surf activities every Sunday morning for two-three hours between the months of October and March. Members participate in Inter-club, Regional and National Competitions. Junior Surf is designed to provide an educational experience in a wide range of subjects and skills within the aquatic/marine environment. The programme also aids in the preparation of junior members for eventual transition into the lifeguarding and sporting aspects of our organisation.
