Benefiting the Community Together 

Elouera Surf Life Saving Club is celebrating 40 years of running the Surf Awareness Clinic, which is proudly sponsored by Tradies Gymea.

The 40th annual Tradies Surf Awareness Clinic, for children aged 7 to 12 years, is a 5-day clinic scheduled for the week of Monday 8 January to Friday 12 January 2024, from 8:45am to 12:00pm daily.  Activities include surf swimming, nipper and body board riding, IRB rides and resuscitation & beach safety education.

To be eligible to participate in the clinic, each child must be able to swim 50 meters unaided.  A swim test will be conducted at Caringbah Leisure Centre, Jacaranda Road, Caringbah on Friday 5 January 2024 from 9:00am to 10:30am. Children who are 2023/24 registered nippers or can supply a 50m swim competency certificate from a registered/authorised swim school coach/instructor do not need to attend the swim test.

The 50m swim competency test is a condition of acceptance of applications to participate in the clinic.

Early bird registration is $60.00 per child until the 31 December 2023 and $70.00 from 1 January 2024.

Elouera Members, be part of our 40th Surf Awareness Clinic celebration.

The clinic will be held from Monday 8 to Friday 12 January 2024. We need volunteers for every morning that the clinic is run. If you can do the whole week - perfect, but so is just coming down for one day.


  1. All volunteers aged 18 years or older must provide a valid Working With Children Check number.
  2. Only Bronze medallion, SRC or Elouera under 13's nippers will be accepted as water safety. If you do not meet these criteria and still wish to volunteer, you are very welcome to be an Age Group Assistant Manager or Support Person.
  3. Water safety hours will be added to patrol hours.
  4. Due to some larger age groups, we may need more age managers. Please consider signing up to be an age manager, as long as you have your bronze, you can still get in the water with your group.

If you have any questions, please email
