Post Christmas Bronze Program 2019/20
The Post-Christmas Bronze Medallion program runs alongside the Surf Rescue Certificate program during the summer period following Christmas, around the same time as the Fairhaven Nipper program. The Bronze Medallion is for anyone aged 15 years+, including parents.

The Bronze Medallion is a program that trains lifesavers and provides valuable lifesaving skills. It is a nationally recognised award that includes resuscitation, swimming, surf rescue, first aid and patrol skills. Whether you would like to join the patrol teams at Fairhaven, improve your fitness, or gain additional qualifications and knowledge that can be used in other areas of life, the Bronze Medallion is the ideal program!

Please note, this program does not operate as a camp. The course will be held on most days between 27th Dec and 4th Dec at Fairhaven beach, including morning and afternoon sessions. Morning sessions are held from 8-10am at Fairhaven SLSC, and typically include water training. Afternoon sessions are from 2-4pm at Fairhaven SLSC, and are generally dry theory sessions. There is a lot of content to cover in the Bronze Medallion course, as well as some fun activities and scenario based-teaching. Participants are required to attend all rostered sessions.

More detailed information about the course will be sent out to participants once registrations have been approved.

You do not have to have any previous lifesaving experience to join and we always encourage new members to get involved. The Bronze Medallion can be physically challenging, and we recommend that you hop in the pool or the surf a few times before the course to ensure you feel comfortable. A prerequisite for Fairhaven's Bronze Medallion course is a timed swim of 400m in under 9 minutes (completed in a pool of at least 25m, in any stroke).
