Volunteer surf life savers provide a vital service to the community on weekends and during public holidays during the warmer months. Our volunteers are trained in both rescue and resuscitation. In addition to saving lives, our presence ensures that people have peace of mind when they visit the beach knowing that help is close at hand should the unforeseen happen.
Whilst the Club offers a variety of activities, our primary focus remains to provide proficient lifesavers to help patrol our beaches and protect the community who use them.
New patrolling members are always welcome. To become a patrolling member, you must complete your Bronze Medallion (or your ‘SRC’ if you are aged 13). Bronze medallion courses, and many others, are run periodically at our club and others throughout the season. Enquiries should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Once you have attained your Bronze, patrolling members also have to demonstrate their proficiency every year.
Patrolling members have the option of participating at Seniors, Opens and Masters Carnivals. To compete, members must undertake a minimum of 25 patrol hours in a calendar year.
