Age managers work with nippers between the ages of 6 and 13, to develop their surf lifesaving and sport skills, by providing fun, safe and organised nipper activities.

To become a qualified Age Manager you must do the following:
  • Complete the online SLSA Age Managers course or attend a face-to-face SLSA Age Managers course presentation.
  • Undertake an on-the-beach technical session with an age manager mentor. This technical session can include time with a foundation coach.
  • Undertake a minimum of two (2) on-the-beach mentoring sessions with an age manager mentor to complete a required third-party form.
  • Have an age manager mentor sign off on the third-party form within the SLSA Age Managers Assessment Portfolio (or SLSA Age Managers Competency Record for those completing the online course version)

If you are 18 years or older, you must apply for a Blue Card.

You must also be a current financial member of Redcliffe Peninsula Surf Life Saving Club to become an Age Manager.
