In order to become a surf lifesaver, you must hold a Bronze Medallion. This is the minimum requirement. It requires the holder to be older than age 15 and to be proficient in surf awareness, survival, patrol and rescue, emergency care and anatomy and physiology. Bronze Medallion holders must also meet certain physical requirements both before and after commencing training. Become a Lifesaver
Every parent wants their child to lead a happy, healthy and active youth. There is no better place for this than introducing your child to surf lifesaving and nippers.
Nippers is a junior program that introduces children aged 5 to 13 to surf lifesaving. It is a fun outdoors activity that grows a child’s confidence, teaches valuable life skills and knowledge. Nippers is a great way for children to make friends, be active and enjoy the beach in a safe environment. Become a Nipper
In addition to our lifesaving activities, we also offer opportunities for our lifesavers to participate in surf lifesaving competitions. We have opportunities for all levels, from club level through the Australian Championships.
Surf Sports include swimming, sprinting, board paddling, surf skis, Inflatable Rescue Boats, and the iconic surf boat rowing. Competitors must stay fit and active all year round, constantly training to prepare for the rigours of surf rescue. More information here
