Age managers use their experience and passion for youth development to mentor Nippers and facilitate fun learning programs that encourage and develop young surf lifesavers. Their goal is to enrich the lives of Nippers through the delivery of surf lifesaving knowledge and skills in a fun and safe aquatic environment.

All our Age Group Managers must be :

  • Current registered members of WBSLSC

To become a qualified Age Manager you must do the following:

  1. Complete the online SLSA Age Managers course or attend a face-to-face SLSA Age Managers course presentation.
  2. Undertake an on-the-beach technical session with an age manager mentor. This technical session can include time with a foundation coach.
