Activity 1

  • Take the participants on a tour of the surf club – explain each area you visit. Make sure the tour visits the following places:
    • Bathroom/Changing Rooms (remind participants that they should always ask their Age Manager to go the bathroom and then go with a friend).
    • First Aid Room (this is where people are looked after when they are injured).
    • Gear Shed (Where all the rescue equipment is stored, show the participants a few items)
    • IRB Shed (An IRB is usually set up ready for rescues).

Activity 2

  • Take the participants for a walk along the beach.
  • As you walk along the beach point out important features on your beach (i.e. rock features, patrol towers, pools etc) If a patrol is operating then discuss the patrol flags and what the lifesavers are doing.
  • Finish the beach tour by setting the boundaries for junior activities around the surf club and on the beach.
