After a very successful turn out on our previous Meet on 9/02/2021, We are inviting those who have shown their interest in joining but couldn't come along to the previous Meet. We would like to see you at our next Meet.

We are looking for future Surf Lifesavers and Club/Committee members to join our ranks and we're encouraging new & old members to join.
No matter who you are, or what your background is, everyone is welcome in Surf Life Saving and there is a role for everyone no matter your skill level.
There are many opportunities within Surf Life Saving for people of varied ages and abilities to become involved and contribute to the patrolling and behind the scenes capability of Surf Life Saving, not all of which involve donning the red and yellow.

WHAT IS A SURF LIFE SAVER?
A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols beaches. The undertake a number of roles including providing safety information to the public, administering first aid and emergency care, and performing aquatic rescues. Being a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding. You can lead a fit and healthy lifestyle, gain new skills and qualifications, compete in surf sports events, make new friends, and give back to your local community. You may even save someone's life one day.

WHAT'S INVOLVED?
To become a surf lifesaver you need to join your local surf life saving club. To wear the red and yellow and go on patrol, you need to gain your Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion. You will be allocated to a patrol group and roster - each club has different requirements.
