Mission: Our Club’s purpose is to prevent injury and drowning on Papamoa Beach.
Vision: Our Club vision is to deliver excellence in lifeguarding, surf sports and leadership programmes through strong membership and community engagement.
This is achieved through four interdependent community pillars:
Lifeguarding – self-preservation and the preservation of others through beach management and first aid skills
Surf Sports – developing fitter and faster lifeguards that achieve to their potential
Education – of schools and communities to raise awareness and skills around water
Leadership – developing life skills for leading others in critical incident situations through to inspiring a positive team culture.
All these skills are transferable wherever the lifeguard’s pathway takes them – school, family, teams, community and into the work force.
