The volunteer patrol season for most of Queensland runs from September through to May. The Surf Club Open Day is a chance for people to visit their local surf life saving club and see what it's like to be a surf lifesaver. Surf lifesaving offers many opportunities to get involved, beyond patrolling the beach. You can be involved in surf sports, junior activities, communications, operations support and so much more.
Lifesaving offers a variety of opportunities for the whole family. From the age of five you can be involved in lifesaving as a nipper. There is no maximum age, so whether you are five or 95 there is a place for everyone. Find out about Surf Life Saving Queensland's membership categories.
Depending on the surf life saving club you can expect to see the clubhouse and how it operates, speak to current members about getting involved in lifesaving and find out what opportunities are available within that club.
Once you’ve seen the club, met the people and found out how you can get involved you can choose to become a member then and there, or take the time to think about it and come back to the club at a suitable time. Remember the patrol season starts in September, so it’s best to sign on early so you can make the most of the entire season.
Surf lifesaving is a great activity for the whole family, it’s a great way to stay healthy and meet new people whilst also giving back to the community. Surf Life Saving Queensland is one of the fastest growing volunteer organisations in Australia with close to 36,000 members across 59 clubs.
There are numerous ways you can get involved in surf lifesaving, even if you don’t want to get your toes wet. So what are you waiting for? Join Today, become a lifesaver. You’ve got what it takes!
