A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols our beaches on the weekends. Becoming a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding. Surf lifesavers undertake a number of roles including aquatic rescues, providing first aid and emergency care and providing surf safety information to the public. The Surf Rescue Certificate is a stepping stone to the full Bronze Medallion that is generally the minimum standard required for full patrolling duties.
Each year we deliver a range of courses through education to save lives. We combine dry and water based activities designed to be fun, interactive and a great way to educate children/adults on the important aspects of sun, surf and beach safety, whilst increasing their skills and confidence in the water and on the beach.
Young people are the future of lifesaving and our club aims to provide our younger generation with the opportunity to make friends and learn new skills in an enjoyable environment. There are many ways that you can be involved in lifesaving and there are heaps of programs and activities that our club runs to help keep you motivated, keep you involved, and that help you get ahead in life outside lifesaving!
Nippers is the junior branch of the Surf Life Saving movement. It educates U6 to U14's about many aspects of surf life saving and prepares them for entry into the Senior Club. The beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the ‘tests’ of swimming, body boarding, beach sprints, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and discovering things about themselves.
