March Past Training

March Past is one of Surf Life Saving’s original events and represents the traditional discipline of a surf lifesaver. Teams of 12, march in time to music around a set course carrying a surf reel, line and belt and following their standard (flag) bearer. Teams march in formation following commands and they are judged on factors such timing, arm and leg swing, space and dressing (position), body carriage and presentation.
