The Tradies Surf Awareness Clinic has been awarded many community water safety awards since its inception in 1982, the most recent being the Police and Safety Community Award in 2014.
The 39th Tradies Surf Awareness Clinic is scheduled for Monday 11th January to Friday 15th January 2021 from 9:00am to 12:00pm daily and is open to children 7 to 12 years of age.
To be eligible to participate in the clinic, each child must be able to swim 50m unaided and to demonstrate this ability, a test swim will be conducted at Caringbah Leisure Centre, Jacaranda Road, Caringbah on Friday 8th January 2021 from 9:00am to 10:30am. Due to Covid, children who are 2020/21 registered nippers or can supply a 50m swim competency certificate from a registered/authorised swim school coach/instructor do not need to attend the test swim.
The 50m swim competency test is a condition of acceptance of applications to participate in the clinic.
