Age Manager

Use your experience and passion for youth development to mentor a group of nippers to become the next generation of lifesavers

Age Managers play a crucial and fundamental role within the Junior Activities program, taking responsibility for the care, safety, well-being and development of junior lifesavers. As an Age Manager, you will provide young members within the movement with the skills, knowledge and experience to assist their development from nippers into future lifesavers. The goal is to enrich the lives of junior members through the delivery of surf life saving knowledge and skills in a fun and safe aquatic environment.

Depending on the size of the group of juniors that you are working with, you may be supported by an assistant or other qualified coaches and trainers who can teach specific skills


Age managers are required to:

  • be 18 years of age if you are working with under-6 or under-7 groups
  • be 15 years of age (minimum) – if managing children in the age groups under 8 upwards
  • hold a valid Blue Card
  • hold an Age Managers Accreditation
  • hold an Observers Award, Surf Rescue Certificate or SLSA Bronze Medallion
