Coaching and officials courses

Coaching Courses

Junior surf is particularly fortunate to have a number of very well qualified, experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated co-ordinators, but they do need your assistance. We have always had a great response from our parents with help on the beach. Surf Lifesaving New Zealand provides coaching courses designed to help parents gain the confidence and skills required to assist with helping the children. For those parents willing to be involved with coaching on club days you can contact Tisha and/or check when courses are being run by visiting the Surf New Zealand website.

Surf Officials Course

We are always looking to up-skill our officials for carnivals. We need to provide at least 2 officials from each age group for the carnivals. We have a number of qualified officials but need a few more. The Carnival arena controllers have been appointed so the roles of the helpers are not difficult.

To be a water official you must have a minimum of Surf Lifesaving Certificate. We will provide training for those interested in achieving this award.

At the carnivals we may enlist your help with marshalling, recording or managing the teams. There are only a maximum of 5 carnivals so once again step up and help out. Without the officials we can’t run the carnivals.
