The Beyond My Club (26+) Development Program was introduced in 2015 and received overwhelming interest and support. Surf Life Saving New South Wales (SLSNSW) will be continuing the ‘Beyond My Club (26+) Development Program’ in 2018.

The program will continue to bridge the gap in formal development opportunities for new members aged 26 years and over. It will encompass all aspects of Surf Life Saving from a club perspective including but not limited to member recruitment and development, educational pathways, sport participation and lifesaving skills development. A key focus of the program will be to promote best practice initiatives that can be tailored to an individual club’s needs.

  • Financial member of a New South Wales club
  • Aged 26 years and over on Friday 1 June 2018 (born 1992 or prior)
  • Attained their SLS Bronze Medallion after 1 June 2015 (3 years proficient)
  • Proficient in SLS Bronze Medallion

The following items are desirable and may be used to prioritise applicants;

  • Currently hold or planning to hold (in the 2018/2019 season) a club committee position
  • Demonstrated commitment to club (examples include but not limited to patrol hours, trainer/assessor, age manager/coach etc.)

How To Apply
