Active Surf Club Membership
To become a volunteer lifesaver the first award you need to gain is the Bronze Medallion. You have to be 15 years of age for this award. The Bronze Course includes the ability to swim in both the pool and the surf, knowledge of rescue techniques, first aid, resuscitation and radio operation.
Once you have gained your Bronze Medallion, active members are then placed onto a patrol roster and are expected to perform voluntary patrols for the Club between September and May.
Membership must be renewed prior to any life saving activities. Renewal on the weekends is not ideal and cannot be guaranteed as no life saving staff work at these times.
There are a few ways you can apply and renew life saving membership.
Option 1. Apply or renew online including payment see the portal membership renewal guide below.
Option 2. Fill out the membership form below and either email it to [email protected] or bring it in to reception during Mon-Fri 10am-4pm. Payment can be made over the phone or in the club reception Mon-Fri 10am-4pm.
