Surf Babies and Little Lifesavers

2019 Enrolments - NOW OPEN

Surf Babies and Little Lifesavers is a water confidence and aquatic safety program specifically designed for young beach lovers and their families. Adults will gain confidence taking young children to the beach by learning how to identify hazards, how to respond to a beach-based emergency and how to supervise children appropriately in the open water.

The 4 key areas of learning are:

Education: Sun safety and water education
Water: Fundamental water skills
Beach: Coordination and movement skills
First Aid: CPR and basic first aid knowledge

The surf babies program in nature is more freedom orientated, whilst the Little Lifesavers program is structured and allows for the instructor to direct both parent and child.

The program will be held at 10 locations in 2019:

  • Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club

  • Grange Surf Life Saving Club

  • Henley Surf Life Saving Club

  • West Beach Surf Life Saving Club

  • Somerton Surf Life Saving C
