Surf Life Saving - Sydney Northern Beaches

Rookie Program

Ideas for the Under 14’s (SRC), 15’s, 16’s & 17s. See attached Rookie Booklet.

-The older age groups of Nippers have just completed 9 years of service.
-Some of them have had enough of competition.
-Some of them need a change.
-Many of them have learnt their surf survival skills.
-Most of them do a better job of water safety than older members on Patrol.
This is the time to step-up their training, engage them, challenge them and lead them into the next phase of surf lifesaving. You want to create a program within the surf club that the kids are proud to be part of, one that they talk about at school the next day.
