Coogee Minnows

Minnow Parents

We are continually working to make the Coogee Minnows a club where all children feel proud to be a member, where they learn individual and team skills on the beach and in the surf, and above all where they have a great time each weekend. As a voluntary organisation we need help from you, the parents and guardians, to be able to make this happen.

This year we are continuing with our program of team activities on the beach. This means we will continue to need Age Group Assistants to provide support to the Age Managers. These positions are supported by officials to help with marshalling age groups, recording places for races, and teams to assist in setting up the beach each Sunday.

    • We will also require qualified water safety officers in the surf (must have Bronze Medallion) during swimming and board events.
    • We are also looking for volunteers to help in the surf education activities (assisting age convenors guide the children through the simple workbooks during the season). We will be in contact with last year’s age convenors to confirm your continued involvement shortly.
    • Please indicate on the tear-off slip attached how you would like to become involved with the Coogee Minnows surf club in any of the roles indicated, and return this with your completed registration forms.


Parents that hold a Bronze certificate (all our Water Safety) need to have their proficiency tested every year.

Don’t forget that if you were not proficient for any reason last season, you MUST do the first proficiency or you won’t be able to patrol or assist with Minnows water safety until you do.

A reminder that for your Bronze proficiency you need to do the following tasks:
1) Run/swim/run
2) CPR (with oxygen and defib)
3) signals
4) radio
5) Board + tube rescue
