Junior Surf is about developing tomorrow's lifeguards and opening up a whole new world to children. By encouraging children to have fun and participate safely in the Surf Life Saving spirit of fair play. Junior Surf is an ideal way to assist children to develop and improve their surf lifesaving knowledge and skills for themselves, and one day for others.
Palmerston North Surf Life Saving Club runs a Junior Surf programme for children aged 7 to 13.
How do we become involved?
To become involved in our Junior Surf programme come down to the Lido (in Palmerston North) at 9am on Sunday - during school terms.

Beach sessions tend to start at the end of November and run every Sunday thereafter until the end of March. Sessions run immediately after Sunday morning pool sessions, at approximately 10:30am at the beach. Meet at the Club house.
Depending on weather and water conditions each session will include dry land training and then move on to water based training. Sessions are held rain, hail or shine and if the weather is especially bad (which we can expect on our wild west coast) we will hold surf safety activities in the clubrooms.
There are plenty of competitions throughout the season for our juniors to compete in, including the much anticipated Oceans Nationals. There are also many local competitions which are a great way to develop surf skills in a fun and competitive environment, experience other beaches and meet juniors from other clubs.
