Youth Development

WSLSC Juniors Aims and Objectives

  • To develop new members to progress to the cadets and senior ranks of the club and to carry out the club’s surf patrol and rescue obligations.
  • To encourage and recognize achievements in competitive events and to develop skills.

Swimming Tuition – We are not a learn to swim facility

It is the parent’s responsibility to arrange swimming tuition and training for their children. Waimairi SLSC teaches surf awareness and skills, but does not teach swimming itself. Junior’s are encouraged to participate in regular swimming training at their local pool. Our surf club activities complement pool training, they don’t replace it.

Waimairi SLSC is a family club and has a great social atmosphere for children and parents but it is expected that the parents/caregivers are to be available to help out if required.

“Participation is the cornerstone of the Life Saving Movement – Competing is encouraged but not compulsory”
