Description

Zespri - Raglan IRB Development Camp

Course Overview

This year's Raglan IRB Development Weekend is proudly supported by SLSNZ's Eastern Region primary partner Zespri.  As such the course costs are covered for all Candidates, Instructors & Examiners. 

This year's Development weekend will be for IRB Driver candidates only, with IRB Crew awards being covered off separately in regions prior to Raglan and throughout the coming season. The objective of the weekend is the development of Senior Lifeguard - IRB Driver Award candidates, Instructors and Probationary Examiners, if the conditions permit there will be an option for an exam.

Places for Senior Lifeguard - IRB Driver Award candidates will be limited to 40, with consideration being given to ensuring all clubs get fair representation.  Instructor positions will also be limited, once again ensuring fair representation across the clubs.

SLSNZ have several IRB development weekends planned across the three Eastern Region areas to assist with preparation for the Raglan Examination weekend.  Clubs are also reminded that they need to conduct their own training programmes to ensure their candidates are ready for examination.  I would like to remind clubs that the swell at Raglan can be very solid and heavy, so clubs are encouraged to put forward ONLY those candidates who have done the work and are ready to sit their IRB Drivers Award.
