Lifeguarding Roles

Do you want to be part of an amazing culture, learn new skills, and meet some fantastic people?

Want to help others and keep fit at the same time? 

We welcome everyone over the age of 14 to take this opportunity to become a skilled lifeguard.

Training for the Lifeguard Award takes place over 10 sessions with a theory and practical component and at the end of the training you will have skills for life such as first aid and CPR.

Patrol Support is a great option for those who would like to become a fully qualified surf lifeguard, but your swimming ability doesn’t quite meet the SLSNZ standard currently. 

Patrol Support train alongside trainee lifeguards to learn aspects of lifeguarding including first aid, setting up an IRB and patrolling on the beach.

Our Rookie Junior Lifeguard Programme provides a vital bridge between Junior Surf and Lifeguarding. It is an educational programme that introduces children aged 13-14 to a higher level of lifeguarding skills such as first aid, CPR, communication and patrolling requirements. Ultimately, growing them into our lifeguards of the future.

Although many of our Rookies come through from Junior Surf, previous participation in Junior Surf activities is not required.
