Silver Salties is a participation program for older Australians (65+ years) at participating surf lifesaving clubs throughout Australia promoting physical activity, social connections, and involvement in the surf lifesaving community.
Silver Salties is managed by Surf Life Saving Australia, coordinated by State Centres, and delivered by participating surf lifesaving clubs- like us!
The KBSLSC Silver Salties program will have Four 5-week sessions. The sessions start on Monday 3rd October 2022 and will conclude on Friday the 24th March 2023. All sessions normally run for approx. 45 minutes.
After our pilot last season, we are excited to be offering 55 activity opportunities this season. Weare keen for participants to enrol into the activities for each term. This will ensure as many individuals can have certainty and access and we can make sure the classes are the ‘right’ size to maximise everyone’s experience.
The Silver Salties program offers three exciting activities this season:
1) Walk and Talk – This activity promotes the physical and social health benefits of moderate physical activity. Walk and Talk will be held at various locations around the Kingston and Blackmans Bay beach area. The walking group will cater for all speeds. The session will conclude with an optional coffee/tea at Clubhouse.
2) Water Frolic and Water Skill Development –This activity will focus on two 40-minute sessions of water-based activities and swimming. The first session will be for those participants new to water activities and the second 40-minute session will be for participants who have more advanced water skills. The session will conclude with an optional coffee/tea at Clubhouse.
3) Yoga and Mindfulness – This activity promotes physical health including flexibility, strength, and balance as well as well as mental health through a series of yoga poses and mindfulness activities. The session will conclude with an optional coffee/tea at Clubhouse.
