2017/18 Skills Maintenance Sessions

All active lifesavers on patrol or performing Water Safety must attend a Skills Maintenance session before 31st December 2017.

Skills Maintenance sessions are conducted each season to satisfy legal requirements and ensure ongoing competency of members in their area of training or activity with SLSA.  Awards from season to season are valid until 31 December. Members who are not proficient in that award as of 31 December are not permitted to patrol or compete in any SLSA competition, until they have obtained the required proficiency.  Members who obtain their award between January and April are required to attend a skills maintenance session when the new season commences in September of that year. 
The schedule for the 2017/18 season will be posted by end of August 2017.   Attendance is compulsory for all Cadets, Active, and Reserve Active members under the club conditions of membership.  Failure to fulfill this requirement means you are not able to perform water safety, patrol or compete in SLSA events and your membership will be suspended for the remainder of the season. 

The  SLSA NSW pre-season info pack  outlines the skills maintenance requirements for each award.
