SportSport and competitions have a long and proud history at Wainui and continue to play a role in ensuring our members are fitter, stronger, faster lifeguards in, on and around the beach
From local surf carnivals to our National Championships, competition brings the membership together and provides opportunities for Juniors through to Masters to develop and compete across huge range of disciplines. Our amazing coaches share their beach knowledge with all our ages groups. It's loads of fun, adventure and learning all wrapped up together!
Our athletes perform in a variety of disciplines, including surf, beach, pool canoe and IRB events. Our coaching programme caters for beginning, intermediate, advanced and international athletes. The success of all our athletes is testament to the quality of coaching available within our club. The programme is structured to help optimise athletes competition goals while respecting the social needs and goals of all our members. We understand that athletes don’t live in isolation and we encourage their family and support networks to contribute and work with us in a holistic way for the betterment of the individual and the whole family.
The programme has been structured to provide all members with future pathways where they can take on other roles within the club eg, coaching, managing or co-ordinating positions.
