Managing your Parental Account

As a parent, you are in complete control of all interactions, communications and access granted to your child through their VEGEMITE SurfGroms account.

In designing the various functions of the VEGEMITE SurfGroms website and the GromRoom social networking platform, we have taken every measure to design a safe and secure environment for your children to explore.  We truly value social involvement and engagement within the young surfing community, and are committed to safe fun.  However, we believe it should ultimately be the parents decision as to the level of interaction their Grom can participate in.

Because of this, when you register your child as a VEGEMITE SurfGrom, you will be supplied with a unique username and password to your Parental Management Platform. 

From here you are able to grant an access level for your Grom, and monitor any interactions including all incoming and outgoing communications.  You are able to turn on and off the different functions and applications within your childs account, and can update or downgrade their access at any time. 

The following functions are available from within the Parental Management Platform:

View & Edit your VEGEMITE SurfGroms' Details

From within this section you can view, edit and update your childs personal details and contact information.  You can edit details such as which schools they attend, their membership details and any illnesses or injuries they may have acquired.

Remember to keep their clothing size up to date in this section, so that when they re-register for the next season, they receive their pack with the correctly sized clothing!

GromMail Preferences

Every registered VEGEMITE SurfGrom will acquire a VEGEMITE SurfGroms email address (name@surfgroms.com), so long as you approve this from within the Parental Management Platform.  This is a secure email service that is only accessible via the VEGEMITE SurfGroms website.  If you allow your child access to their email address, you can opt to be bcc'd in on every outgoing correspondence and copied in on all incoming mail. 

Should you not wish for your child to have email access, you can opt for all correspndence to come via your own email address.

Program Management

From within the program managment area of the Parental Management Account, you can manage the programs your child is registered to, and view all of the relevant details of each of these programs. 

You can keep track of how your Grom is progressing, and schedule future programs that will ensure their continuing progress through the 5 skill levels.

GromRoom Preferences

The GromRoom is our safe and secure Social Networking Platform for registered VEGEMITE SurfGroms around Australia.  This application encourages young surfers to engage within there local surfing community with other young surfers in a fun and safe way when off the beach.

The platform is continually monitored by Surfing Australia to maintain the safe environment we have created, and access to the platform is tightly restricted to active and registered VEGEMITE SurfGroms only. 

Access can be granted once participants have collected their unique membership ID from their local delivery centre in person, and permission has been given through the Parental Management Account by you - the parent.

You can grant different levels of access.  For example, you can:

  • Turn on/off incoming or outgoing invitations
  • Be copied in on all messages; chats; posts; or uploads
  • Control the 'Mates' invitations
  • Switch on or off complete access to the GromRoom 
The above parental functions have been built into our website to ensure you can be confindent your child is safe whilst on the VEGEMITE SurfGroms website.  If you have any questions relating to the Parental Management Account, please contact us at info@surfgroms.com
