26 December: 5-7pm – Uniform Collection for Junior Surf and Rookies (7-13 years) Meet at Pauanui Surf Life Saving Lodge Office, 1 Just in Time, Pauanui.

18 December: 9.45-11.00am Junior Surf Begins & trainee lifeguards begin. 7-12 year olds meet in front of the Pauanui Surf Life Saving Club, Rookies (13 year olds) meet upstairs in the main room of the Surf Club. Trainees will be notified of meeting location. Junior Surf will run every Monday - Friday until mid January 2024.

1 January: Annual Door Knock Appeal. Please get behind your club and help with our annual fundraiser - family sausage sizzle at the club after the collection. To secure your area contact our Club Secretary:  Note: We will be signing members up before collection day!

Junior Surf: All junior surf uniforms paid and ordered on line generate a transaction receipt which is emailed to you. A copy of these receipts is available on uniform pick up day (Dec. 26 3-5pm) so we know what you've ordered! If you're not at Pauanui on 26th, don't worry - crew will be at the club office every morning prior to junior surf sessions.

Rookies and trainees need fins! Please ensure you have purchased fins before you come to Pauanui as they are difficult to purchase once at the beach (the club are not selling them this year). Popular brands lifeguards use are Red Backs, DaFin or Viper. Purchase them to fit - if you buy large (to grow into) they will be lost in the surf! 

Friday 5 January: Junior Surf Carnival, Pauanui Beach. Meet in front of the Pauanui Surf Life Saving Club, where we host other clubs in the region for the annual Junior Surf Carnival. Come along to support Pauanui’s  future surf lifeguards, as they put their newly acquired beach, surf and board skills to the test to compete against other clubs in the Coromandel to defend their Pauanui Junior Surf Carnival Champion title! All competitors must be registered by 8:45am on the day. Junior Surf March past the clubhouse at 9am, events start immediately after.
