BOARD TRAINING U9 – U14

Board training sessions are run from the Club by our Head Coach and coaching team. All are experienced surf lifesaving competitors and most still regularly compete. Training takes place at Cabarita Beach SLSC or Hastings Point depending on conditions.  Note, if training is at Hastings, you need to go to the Club half an hour before to collect your Board.

All sessions are open to U9-U14.

Parental help with water safety is required for the sessions to take place.

No water safety = no water training
