Mentoring Coaching Program

Hunter Surf Lifesaving has developed a Mentoring Coach Program for those wanting to become a coach.

We have identified a need for a qualified Mentor Coach to assist our new members acquire their accreditation after completing the online Theory modules of Coaching.

Jeff Mowbray from Swansea Belmont SLSC is one of the most qualified Coaches in Australia and has offered to head up this program for our HSLS members. We also have specialist Beach Coaches that we can call upon if needed.

Age Managers are particularly encouraged to take up this program, if skills are taught well from the onset of introduction to Surf Lifesaving, it is proven a more enjoyable journey is experienced and we will retain members through the Senior ranks

All Coaches are required to hold their Bronze Medallion as part of becoming a coach.

Three Steps have been designed for members to participate in this.

These are:

  1. Complete your Foundation and Development Coach Courses through your eLearning.
  2. Induction - where members will be given programs to follow and implement/plus beach session to watch skills techniques being taught.
  3. Jeff to attend a club training session to observe Trainee Coach teaching to sign off qualifications.
