Regardless of whether your child goes to the beach once a week or once a year, it’s really important for all children to have at least a basic understanding of surf safety and some of the steps they can take to protect themselves around the water.

Surf Life Saving Queensland’s award-winning Little Lifesavers program is designed to ensure that kids have fun in the water while, at the same time, introducing them to some of the basics of beach safety through the guidance of qualified and fully-trained surf lifesavers.

The Little Lifesavers Program has been running across the state for more than two decades, and returns to multiple locations in the coming weeks including the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Springfield, Raby Bay, the Sunshine Coast, and Cairns.

What is Little Lifesavers?

Surf Life Saving Queensland’s acclaimed Little Lifesavers program has educated thousands of children across the state since its launch in 1993, introducing children aged 5-11 to some of the basic principles of water safety.

The program, run by fully-qualified surf lifesavers, sees young children participate in a range of games and educational activities, all designed to slowly build up their confidence in the water and at the beach.

The program sees young participants introduced to a variety of surf lifesaving skills including board paddling, wading, dolphin diving, beach sprints, and flags.

They also learn about basic rescue techniques, what to do if they find themselves in trouble while swimming, and simple first aid skills; if nothing else, these are skills they’ll be able to take with them for the rest of their lives.
