Bronze Medallion

Want to help keep beach goers safe this season at the ‘Spray?

Then why not become a qualified surf life saver and get your Bronze Medallion?

Seaspray Surf Club is holding a week-long camp at Seaspray from 10 to 16 December 2023 to give participants the skills and knowledge they need to participate in surf life saving patrol operations in a fun, supportive team environment.

The Bronze Medallion is the core award required to be a surf life saver in Australia. It provides training in areas including radio communications, surf rescue techniques, first aid and CPR.

To get your Bronze, you need to be at least 15 years old by 16 December 2023, become a surf club member and able to swim 400 metres in nine minutes or less.

Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC)

The surf club wants to hear from anyone interested in undertaking their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) this season.

The SRC provides an introduction to the skills and knowledge in aquatic rescue operations, surf awareness and basic first aid and CPR.

Participants also learn how to use surf life saving equipment, including rescue boards, and enables young members to take part in patrols.

Those who successfully complete their SRC are considered water safety personnel or cadet surf life savers and continue their learning alongside more experienced patrol members.

Anyone who wants to compete in rescue board events at state-level surf life saving carnivals must hold their SRC.

This season’s course will be held on December 11th, 12th, 13th and 16th  2023 at the ‘Spray.

To take part in the course, participants must

  • be aged 13 years on the final day of assessment,
  • be able to complete a 200m pool swim in under five minutes

Typically, Nippers in the Under 14 age group undertake their SRC, but youth and adult club members have completed their SRC and go onto become long-standing patrol members.

The SRC provides a useful stepping stone for those who want to progress to getting their Bronze Medallion when they are at least 15 years old.

If you or your child is interested or you have any questions, please contact James Robbins on 0476 168 060 or
