Parents we need you! All surf lifesaving clubs are volunteer and non profit making organisations and the only way we can function effectively is for you to take an active role. The roles we need help with now are:
Junior Surf Leaders
Ideally we want a system where we have 3 – 4 leaders per age group. This works well with safety and so leaders are able to better manage smaller groups. Further this assists leaders in working together to ensure there is always someone present to lead their group on a Sunday morning. As far as you wanting to help out your community and our kids we highly recommend becoming a Omanu Junior Surf leader. There’s no pressure, you’re unlikely to be over committed and it’s a fun and positive way to be involved. Aside from your own good idea’s we’ll supply you with all the information and equipment you’ll need to fill in an hour on the beach on a Sunday morning.
Safety Support and Beach Help
We need you either in the water or on the beach watching your kids at all times. Never leave the beach and leave your kids in the hands of others. Please keep an eye on what’s happening or join the groups when they’re enjoying water activities. When the session is over please assist us to get gear from the beach, cleaned and safely packed away.
Junior Surf Gear Steward
All equipment used and in particular the Junior Surf boards are expensive items. We want to look after and keep track of all gear and require a couple of parents to monitor and maintain this gear throughout the season. Contact Graham Dunn or Greg Swanberg now and we’ll set you up.
Junior Surf BBQ
Again this year we’ll use a roster system for the running of Junior Surf BBQ. This task requires parents of each age group helping out on the BBQ on about two Sunday’s per season. This is the major fundraiser for the junior club so when it’s your age groups turn then please assist.
