Dry Sand Beach Safety Sessions

These workshops are delivered at Surf Life Saving Clubs. They involves a theory presentation delivered by Volunteer Life Savers from the club or SLS NSW Staff at the venue, then participants are engaged in on-beach dry activities without them needing to get into the water. There are no age requirements and children and whole families are welcome. These sessions are particularly suited to groups new to Australia and those with limited to no experience of Australian beaches and coastlines.
