Water Safety at Junior Surf Events
After much consideration the Junior Surf operational Committee have confirmed that the requirements for Water Safety will remain as follows for the 2017-18 season:
U10 Age Group:  All Clubs will need to provide water help based on a Water Safety roster system.  You will need to provide 5 qualified and refreshed Lifeguards with Tubes and Fins for their allotted time in each arena. If your club is sending a very small number of competitors then consideration will be given to combining your water safety with another club.
U12 and U14 Age Groups: Clubs will need to provide a list of named (2 per Club) people who are qualified and refreshed Lifeguards with Tubes and Fins to be on standby in the arenas.
Names of attending Water Safety will need to be submitted to SLSNR by a communicated date and time.


Event Safety Team
Are you interested in being involved in our 2017-18 Northern Region Surf Sports and Junior Surf events as an Eventguard or Event First Aider?  Applications for these roles will open in late June.  However if you have any questions or would like to understand what is involved please contact Chase Cahalane - 021 508688 or chase.cahalane@lifesaving.org.nz
Team training will be held in August 2017.
