Rookie and Youth Program at North Avoca SLSC

Our youth are the future of our Club!

The Youth Program at North Avoca provides a fun, engaging dynamic and challenging gateway from our Nippers program to becoming a competent lifesaver and Open competitor.

With training and coaching sessions, educational camps and social events, the North Avoca Youth program is a great avenue for young adults to continue to learn and grow within the Surf Lifesaving movement.

Rookie Program (U13 & U14)

Each year our North Avoca Rookies which incorporates our U13 and U14 age groups participate in the SLSCC Rookie program.

The Rookie program starts the transition from Nippers to becoming a patrolling member of North Avoca. They join the Rookie patrol and are mentored by the members of the patrol, perform practice rescue scenarios and also have a lot of fun with their friends.

There are a number of Rookie Activities that are run by the SLSCC.

These include:

  • Raising of the Flags
  • Rookie Disco
  • 13-14’s Youth Development Program
  • Junior Lifesaver of the Year
  • Rookie Challenge

Youth Program (U15 – U19)

Each year our North Avoca Youth which incorporates our U15 through to U19 age groups participate in the SLSCC Youth leadership program.

The Program is structured as a series of workshops in a team based setting which is aimed at youth members who have leadership qualities that can be developed to enhance their future and that of surf lifesaving. Participants will take part in workshops and presentations for focussed learning, in addition to some physical activities and challenges. They will also complete problem solving exercises, face personal challenges and participate in team based activities, all delivered under the guidance of active leaders from lifesaving, business and the community.

The aim of the leadership program is for our North Avoca Youth:

  • To be provided basic training in leadership and development
  • To be able to create situations that promote fun learning experiences
  • To be able to create an awareness of current issues, pathways and opportunities
  • To promote teamwork, communication skills, networking and goal setting
  • To develop confidence and self-esteem in a supportive environment
  • Positively recognising youth members and provide opportunities for ideas to be exchanged
  • To gain knowledge of the structure of Surf Lifesaving
  • Have fun !
