Annual Subscription Fees 


  • Junior Surf Family Memberships
"Because we are a parent-run organisation, we require at least one parent or caregiver to join, along with their child. All parents and caregivers helping out on the beach must be at least Associate Members so that they are covered under SLSNZ liability insurance. Therefore, it is beneficial if both parents/caregivers become members. If you are a solo parent, the second caregiver could be someone from your extended family such as an Uncle or Grandmother. This will also make it easier for either parent/caregiver to take advantage of First Aid, coaching and Surf Officials courses." - Bas van Esch, Director of Junior Surf
Junior Surf Family Memberships start at $60 for one parent plus one child. The Parent/Caregiver will be awarded an Associate Membership unless already a Senior Patrolling or Life Member.
  • 2 Parents/caregivers + 1 child ($80)
