The patrol season will run from the 30th of November till Easter Monday 21st of April. We aim to have more flexible patrols this summer – some patrols doing one day over the weekend, some doing two; some patrols running over the peak period of January and February, others running in the quieter months. We hope to have a great season again and we look forward to another safe summer at 13th beach. We’ll have more information on the patrolling page soon!
Nippers is now full. To be able to run Nippers with the our current numbers we will need as much help as possible from Bronzies, Cadets and any adult Bronze holders. Please remember to requal! We look forward to seeing you in January.
Nippers runs over three consecutive weekends from Saturday 4th January 2014.
The popular adult’s bronze course will again be running on weekends over November and December. If you are interested please contact Patrick Stock at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. It’s important we get as many people on board as possible to increase our water safety numbers for Nippers!
Bronze Camp is planned for the week of Monday 16th December 2013
Bronze Camp is a great way to become a fully qualified Surf Life Saver, and at the same time make a stack of new friends. The week long live in camp is a fun, challenging way to experience an introduction to Surf Life Saving. It is open for applicants aged 15 years and over. On completion of the camp, participants will hold their Bronze Medallion.

CADETS (SURF RESCUE CERTIFICATE)
Cadets is planned for the week beginning Monday 6th January 2014.
The SRC program is a great way to get involved with the patrolling side of lifesaving, and learn some new skills. You will be able to keep in touch with all of your friends from nippers, and make some new ones too. It is open for applicants aged 13 and 14 years of age. On completion of the program, participants will hold their Surf Rescue Certificate, which allows them to patrol the beach.
Information for the SRC program will be available on the Training page soon.
