11am – 4pm


5pm – 7pm


11am – 4pm

Wet work:

We will be running the 200, run/swim/run every half an hour on the hour and 30min past. This will allow people to go in groups. In between run/swim/runs you will be able to complete other water work.

Dry work:

This will be held up at the clubhouse.

As a member your responsibilities are:

  • Attend one of the proficiency days
  • Complete the online component and bring the evidence it is complete. To access it please click  Elearning Link 
  • Sign in at the proficiency session
  • Get your card signed and when completed hand this in to Lisa Harvey

Obviously all of the proficiency assessors are volunteers, so please support each other by attending the organised sessions. If for some reason you are unable to attend any session (ie: shift work) then please contact either:

  • Kersten Stengel 0434 041 038
  • Lisa Harvey 0411 033 829

All members must be proficient by 31st December 2015 in order to patrol and compete.

 We look forward to seeing you.




Each member will be issued a Proficiency Card to use as a record of completed disciplines.   When the card is complete it should then be handed to either Suzie Macauley or Lisa Harvey.




The 2015/2016 season brings about change for our annual proficiency testing.  SLSA has conducted a review of the process and has now added an online component.   Members are asked to log on to the SLSA Members Portal, access the Lifesaving Online Courses and complete the Skills Maintenance theory tasks relevant to your awards.  Once complete a certificate can be printed from the Personal Learning Plan menu and presented to club Assessors at the time of the practical demonstration.  Please note that this does not replace the need to attend the club and demonstrate knowledge of the award.

A limited number of hard copy theory papers will be available during the Skills Maintenance programme for those that do not have access to the online tasks but to save time on the day it is preferable to do the online version.


Please see  the Elearning Link of how to access the e-Learning area of the Members Portal.
