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 2021 to be eligible to attend this course.
Registrations for this year’s camp are now open. Please register and pay your fees before 8th October 2021. This year the Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club SRC course will take place on the weekend of 30/31 October 2021 and Tuesday 2 November 2021, with no overnight stay. The cost of the course is $95. This covers patrol uniform, camp 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.
Candidates will be provided with further information on course requirements once they register. There is a requirement to complete online learning prior to the commencement of the course so it is important to register early so that you get the information on how to complete this as soon as possible.
As part of the Surf Rescue Certificate program, 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 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!!).
