Surf Life Saving SA are excited to announce the Surf Sport Youth Performance Academy Program Squad for the 2017/18 season.
The Surf Sport Youth Performance Academy Program has been developed to help develop and grow youth athletes in SA.
For the past two seasons SLSSA partnered with Flinders University (FU), Flinders One Fitness and South Australian Aquatic and Leisure Centre (SAALC) to design and develop a program aimed at assisting surf sports athletes to be the best they can. After an extensive review of the program, it was decided that the focus of the academy needed to be changed to develop Surf Sports in our State. The Academy now primarily focuses on Athletes from the following age categories, Under 14, Under 15 and first year Under 17. The content delivered by both Flinders University and Surf Life Saving SA through this process is tailored to the new age groups and we will be encouraging coaches and parents/guardians to participate in the sessions.
Recently SLSSA added Mental Health First Aid to its suite of delivered courses. The decision to do this was made from acknowledging that within Clubs and on our beaches more and more Members will be in contact with someone that may require some support due to a mental health issue.
The course is designed for participants to learn skills and gain confidence to assist fellow members, the public, family and co-workers experiencing mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
Clubs go far in providing many activities and services to address the physical wellbeing of its members and the public. This course will go that step further to address the mental wellbeing of members and members of the public that may be required.
SLSSA is pleased to advertise an Introductory offer of $50 for members and $100 for non-members. ($80 Members / $130 Non- members after July 30) This includes a Mental Health First Aid Manual and certification by Mental Health First Aid Australia.
Course Dates: 24th -25th June. 9am – 3pm each day
8th - 9th July 9am - 3pm each day
15th - 16th July 9am - 3pm each day
Venue: Surf Life Saving SA
