The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is the first patrol award that enables U14 and U15 members to join patrols and provide water safety for our Junior Surf Lifesaving Program (Nippers) and carnivals. The SRC award is a requirement for U14 and U15 to be able to compete in surf sports Youth carnivals. Participants must be 13 years old on 30th September 2022 to be eligible to attend this course.

This year, Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club SRC course will be over two weekends, with no overnight stay. The course will be held on Saturday 10th of December, Sunday the 11th of December and Saturday the 17th of December 2022. The cost of the course is $100. This covers patrol uniform, course drink bottle, a resuscitation face mask and training materials. Participants will need to purchase their own online training manual for $10 via their member’s area account

As part of the Surf Rescue Certificate course, candidates will be involved in swimming and board paddling in the surf, rescue training, communication and resuscitation training. Candidates are required to have a minimum level of swimming proficiency (200m swim in 5 minutes or less, in a swimming pool) prior to training for their SRC (they are training to be lifesavers, therefore need to be able to swim well enough to rescue someone else!!).
