The SRC program (also known as Cadets) will run again this year for 13 or 14 year olds who are in under 14s and wish to gain their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC). This is the first stage of becoming a lifesaver. To obtain their certificate, the candidates attend the course, which usually starts on the same day as Nippers and concludes around a week and a half later. Tentative dates are:
December 28 – Day 1 – SRC/Gap Year Program
December 29 – Day 2 – SRC/Gap Year Program
December 30 – Day 3 – SRC/Gap Year Program
December 31 – Day 4 – SRC/Gap Year Program

January 3 – Day 6 – SRC/Gap Year Program
January 4 – Day 7 – SRC/Gap Year Program
January 5 – Day 8 – SRC/Gap Year Program
January 6 – Day 9 – SRC/Gap Year Program
January 7 – Day 10 – SRC Assessment Day (Final Day)/Gap Year Program
January 8 – Day 11 – SRC/Gap Year Program Club Championships (Optional)
January 9 – Day 12 – Gap Year Program
January 10 – Day 13 – Gap Year Program
January 11 – Day 14 – Gap Year Program (M2S)
January 12 – Day 15 – Gap Year Program (Final Day) (P2P)
Candidates will be taught and assessed on performing rescues, identifying dangers, resuscitation, basic emergency care and supervision skills. It is also a great opportunity for Cadets to meet others their age and experience the many aspects of life saving including patrols, competition and training in a safe and supportive environment.
To complete the Surf Rescue Certificate participants must be at able to complete a 200m swim in 5 minutes or less.
