Become a Surf Lifesaver

The role of our Lifesavers is to designate a flagged area for people to swim, supervisor swimmers and provide advice to the public. When required our Lifesavers perform Rescues, Provide First Aid and liaise with Emergency services including: NSW Police, NSW Ambulance and Fire & Rescue.



We are always looking for new members interested in joining our Club to become a lifesaver. The first award a Lifesaver needs to gain is their Bronze Medallion, you must be a minimum of 15 years old to complete this award. We also offer a pathway from our Nipper program into lifesaving by way of the Surf Rescue Certificate. In 2020 Surf Lifesaving introduced a new curriculum for the Surf Rescue Certificate and Bronze Medallion. The new curriculum provides a simple transition pathway with accredited training options. Find out more about the Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC), Bronze Medallion (BM) and other available awards here:
