Long Service Members who wish to remain involved in Active duties must fulfill the following requirements:
Any Long Service Member that wishes to continue to be active within the club as a lifesaver, water safety or competitor must maintain their relevant awards. E.G. if you wish to provide water safety for nippers or the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim.
Attend an annual skills maintenance to keep your awards current
Keep your Bronze Medallion & any other relevant qualification current by attending an annual skills maintenance session. Bronze, ARTC, Spinal Management, IRB Crew & IRB Driver expire on 31st December each year.
Volunteer at the Bondi to Bronte (B2B) Ocean Swim – 1st Sunday in December
The B2B is the clubs most important fundraising event for the season. We raise vital funds to support all activities and provide equipment for Nippers, Education, Lifesaving and Competition.
In recognition of service to the club, it is not mandatory for Long Service members to volunteer at the Bondi to Bronte swim. We do of course appreciate, and encourage all members to remain involved in this significant club event. For a full list of volunteer roles and to sign up click here.
What if I don’t meet my commitments?
Failure to attend an annual skills maintenance
All long service members that wish to remain active within the club or for competition must keep their Bronze Medallion Award current by attending a skills maintenance session before 31st December in the season you are registered. Lapsed members are not able to patrol or provide water safety for the remainder of that season. If your Bronze medallion award is lapsed for more than two seasons you may be required to attend an in-depth proficiency or for more than four seasons you may be required to re-do your bronze medallion should you wish to become active or compete.
