About Surf Life Saving
Surf Life Saving is a world-wide movement which offers members of our community the opportunity to get involved, make a difference, improve your fitness, learn new skills, compete in surf carnivals, learn leadership skills, build new friendships, increase confidence, have some fun and perhaps even save a life, either on or off the beach. Becoming a Lifesaver in Australia means that you are joining the largest volunteer organisation in the world.
A Surf Lifesaver is a trained volunteer who helps provide a safe place for locals and visitors to swim, surf or just enjoy the beach. Volunteer Lifesavers patrol our beach every weekend and on public holidays during the patrol season.
To become a full patrolling member you must be at least 15 years of age and have obtained your Bronze Medallion qualification. Our Club provides this training for you. For further information on the training courses we offer, refer to our Education page
If you are 13 years of age you can complete a Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) and join up as an Active Cadet member. The SRC is like a traineeship; Cadet members learn the basics of Life Saving and help out on patrol learning as they go. When you turn 15 you can then complete your Bronze Medallion training.

We thank our patrol sponsors, Holden, Westpac, DHL, Coastalwatch, ICM and Beach House Avalon for their valuable support.
