Youth Involvement

 

The Youth Involvement program is run for any interested 13-18 year old members and is designed to assist with the retention of this age group.

Participants complete levels in:

  • Lifesaving
  • Development
  • Competition
  • Administration
  • Junior Activities / Nippers
  • Youth Activities
  • Club Activities

This program encourages participants to sign up for activities they want to be involved in and earn points for their work.

 

There are three levels of recognition:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold

and a club clothing award is presented at the completion of each level.

 

For example:

  • for the Bronze award, 10 compulsory hours of patrol are required plus other club activities such as Nippers and Club activities.

Each participant in the program is given a mentor from the club who is responsible for overseeing the activities and signing off any hours or tasks completed.
