Proficiencies

Water proficiencies are a very important part of the Kingston Beach Surf Life Saving Club’s initial assessments for safety and competence. We are not a learn-to-swim school.  All children wishing to enter the water during nipper activities MUST have a basic level of competency in the pool. Further, anyone wishing to compete in water events at carnivals or attend board and swim training must successfully complete the competition evaluation at the beach.  

All nippers (including seahorses) are required to participate in this evaluation (conducted by Kingston Beach SLSC) prior to any water activity at the beach on a Sunday, mid-week training or carnival participation.
