A great way to be involved with your kids at Junior Surf is by
being a coach or assisting the coaching team. The Junior squad is
divided into groups which is based on child age and ability. Each
group is assigned a coach for the season who will work in
conjunction with the Junior Coordinator and be responsible for
his/her team. Junior surf coaches are often parents of junior surf
kids, and find their envolvement very rewarding. No previous
lifeguard experience is necessary, just a willingness to help out
and get invloved.
Our Junior surf coaches are trained to ensure they have the
skills required applicable to the age group they are coaching.

time to time, we would love your help. Contact our Junior
