Key Information Source - Dedicated closed Private Facebook Group for OA families. ****Find it HERE****

We use this group to share information related to training, events, gear and more!


Training schedules are created monthly and provided as a Google sheet. (Members can access it from the private Facebook Group) Members are required to update the sheet to show which training sessions they plan to attend to help with Gear planning. 

Nov - Training is spilt between Kiwi & Ocean Beach

Dec Onwards - All training is at Ocean Beach

Clive Pool training is at 6.15 every Wed night at Clive Pools. 


Team members are required to try and attend a minimum of two planned/coached sessions per week, or ideally, at least three training sessions to build fitness.  Any athlete feeling out of their depth during November training sessions are welcome to move across to Transition group to develop their skills before fully committing to Ocean Athletes. 

Gear & Safety

Most team members will be allocated a board for the season. In some instances, sharing boards may be required.  Team members are responsible for taking great care of ALL equipment.

Members MUST train in a hi-vis club vest at all times. (Over wetsuits in cooler months) 

SLS Rules:  1:6  That's 1 Lifeguard for every six children in the water. This means that we need as many parent lifeguards and seniors as possible to assist so all team members get a chance to train on boards in the surf.
