Water Safety Officer
The safety and care of our juniors in water based activities during Sunday morning activities, club junior training sessions and competition carnivals is paramount to our club and our organisation. A ratio of 1 Water Safety Officer to 5 Juniors is a pre-requisite for all our water based activities.
To become a qualified Water Safety Officer and assist with junior activities, club championships, regional and state carnivals, you will need to complete a Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) or the higher qualification of the Bronze Medallion.
The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is a Patrolling Lifesaver Award which aims to each and assess: Safety and Well Being, Surf Awareness and Skills; Basic Anatomy and Physiology; Basic Emergency Care; Resuscitation (CPR); Communications and Rescue Techniques.
The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is also recognised by the Department of Education and Training's Water Safety Guidelines for supervision of children in both open and closed environment.
