Parental Involvement

Parents are invited and encouraged to share the experiences of junior activities with their children - especially with the younger age groups. Involvement within other aspects of the club may include the gaining of awards to assist in providing water safety, coaching specific disciplines, officiating and administration along with participating in social and fundraising activities.

You are definitely welcome at Mornington Life Saving Club!

 

Come down, meet and socialise with like minded people.

Examples of parental help will include:
