Junior Surf Sports & Competitions


Junior Surf Sport offers an opportunity for you to test your surf lifesaving skills in various events based in the water (board, swimming, rescues) and on land (sprints, flags) in individual and team events. The focus is on skill development, participation and team building within the club and the surf life saving community: IN IT FOR LIFE!

The focus is on participation, skill development, building confidence and fitness.
The training is available to all MBSLSC registered athletes – whether you are brand new to surf or aiming to compete at Oceans. Where appropriate the athletes will be split in groups based on ability, age, goals, etc.
HELPERS NEEDED:To ensure we meet the needs of all the athletes, and co-ordinate sign in/sign out and water safety we need more helpers. At registration please indicate if you are available to assist with coaching, water safety, or as a co-ordinator for any of the sessions.

JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT SQUAD – Mid Week Training over the summer months
This is Mairangi Bay Junior training for extra development of skills and fitness through fun and experiences.
Your child must be a registered member of MBSLSC in B, C or Rookie groups.
We do not teach swimming and children are required to have a good level of swimming and confidence in the open water.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • Monday 4:15 – 5:15 pm
  • Tuesday 4:15 – 5:15 pm
  • Wednesday 4:15 – 5:15 pm
  • Thursday 4:15 – 5:15 pm
  • Saturday 10:00 – 11:30am

(session times will increase as the days get warmer)

The main focus of these sessions will be on strength, technique and fitness.
There are 5 sessions a week in order to give all juniors the opportunity to fit in some sessions around their busy lives.
There is NO expectation for people to attend all 5 sessions. 

The cost to attend (one or all sessions) is $40. This fee is used to cover the cost of club & gear use, maintenance and repair.
Link to register will come out closer to the time.

FOR UPDATES ON TRAINING (eg changes, cancellations…)

Carnivals range from fun participation events (Interclubs at Orewa and Ruakaka and the U10 Surf Spectacular) to the more competitive at Northern and Eastern Regional Champs (NRC’s and ERC’s) and at the National Championships known as Oceans.

To enter events you must enter via the club entry system and have:
