YSLSC youth development and activities will enrich the lives of young members through fun, involvement and the acquisition of personal, lifesaving and competition skills, in a safe aquatic environment.
Youth members have unique needs due to their social, emotional and physical developmental growth. Consequently, it is important that YSLSC establishes an environment that nurtures these members and provides them with an opportunity to grow.
YSLSC youth programs provide a safe, educational and enjoyable environment that promotes the Australian way of life and a healthy active lifestyle.
Surf Life Saving activities are organised so that young people have positive experiences regardless of developmental status and should be focussed on FUN and LEARNING. These learning opportunities focus on personal improvement in both surf sports and surf lifesaving.
The YSLSC youth program encourages young members to develop their surf awareness skills, grow into proficient surf lifesavers and experience the wide range of opportunities that Surf Life Saving has to offer.Enrol Today
