Our Vision:To get more females involved, competent and confident in IRBs.Why:In 2019, 50% of Surf Lifeguards were female, yet only 28% of our IRB drivers
To get more females involved, competent and confident in IRBs.
In 2019, 50% of Surf Lifeguards were female, yet only 28% of our IRB drivers were female. This is something SLSNZ & the Wāhine on Water group are looking to address through peering inexperienced lifeguards with an experienced female IRB mentor. The intention of the networking day is to provide females more time in the boat in a supportive low stress environment.
This event is targeted at females from any club who would like to spend a fun day in an IRB learning tips on driving and crewing from some of the best female IRB drivers in the Region. Club IRB instructors of all genders are welcome to accompany members from their club.
You must be 14 yrs with a Surf lifeguard award to crew the IRB, and 16 yrs with a Crewpersons module to operate the IRB.
