Surf Life Saving Northern Region's Club Development Manual has been produced to assist lifesaving club personnel in creating clubs that are better managed, more sustainable and provide good quality services to their members and the wider community while working towards the strategy of 'Growing Stronger Clubs'.
The Club Development Manual has come about as a perceived need by Surf Life Saving Northern Region to assist local lifesaving clubs. The manual serves as a resource to assist clubs to develop their systems and processes to gain growth and sustainability for the long term.
The manual is intended as a reference source for lifesaving clubs and provides easy to follow information, tips, checklists and templates covering the key areas of developing a lifesaving club. Each chapter addresses a specific theme and provides content and strategies that clubs can begin implementing right away.
This is designed to provide members with a framework that showcases all opportunities within Surf Life Saving. It provides clear pathways and identifies what will be delivered at each level. It was established for easy use by all members and to support Surf Life Savings future aspirations.
