Surf Life Saving Australia's official Sporting Schools program READY. SET. RESCUE. is a Surf Life Saving initiative to help school kids stay active, healthy and learn how to stay safe at the beach.

Surf Life Saving Australia is thrilled to partner with the Australian Sports Commission to deliver beach safety to school children throughout Australia in an effort to get kids healthy and active and to reduce preventable drowning in our waters.

THE SURF LIFE SAVING AUSTRALIA PRODUCT

Surf Life Saving is part of our national sporting and cultural heritage. The sport contributes strongly to the social cohesiveness of our community and provides a safe and healthy sport and social environment. There is a wide variety of disciplines and events, all of which have been designed to keep surf lifesavers fit and active and to replicate what may be required in a rescue situation.

Nippers at this age learn to recognise whether they are, or someone else is, in an emergency situation and how to get help. Surf sport skills focus on: body boarding; wading; dolphin-diving; beach sprint starts; and beach flag starts.

Water is one of Australia's favourite playgrounds. Not only can SLSA provide sporting opportunities that support fundamental movement skills and a sporting pathway through the SLSA club system, our programs have an added value of increasing safety competence in and around water.

TEACHERS AND COACHES ARE OUR ASSETS

Surf Life Saving Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.

Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.

The information below is a guide to how schools, coaches and sporting organisations can deliver the Surf Life Saving within Sporting Schools.
