New announcement. Learn more


As further protection for our junior and senior members and the organisation as a whole, Surf Lifesaving New Zealand now requires that a police check be carried out on all adults over 18 years old in direct contact with children. This is a check for “crimes against children and those of a vulnerable nature” ONLY. Any concerns are notified to the SLSNZ only and are treated with utmost confidentiality.  Parents who are present for the primary purpose of care, supervision or water safety for their own child do not require Police vetting.
