Young people are the future of lifesaving and SLSQ aims to provide our younger generation with the opportunity to make friends and learn new skills in an enjoyable environment.

There are many ways that you can be involved in lifesaving and there are heaps of programs and activities that SLSQ run to help keep you motivated, keep you involved, and that help you get ahead in life outside lifesaving!

Clubs and branches also run social activities and programs that help you get fitter and stronger in the water and on the sand and also teach vital leadership and teamwork skills.

Clubs, branches, and SLSQ each have different programs aimed at youth. Check back regularly to see what programs have been organised near you.

The state programs below are designed specifically to help you develop both within and outside of lifesaving.

SLSQ is committed to ensuring the protection, safety and welfare of our young participants and believe that the safety and welfare of children and youth is our main consideration. For more information about the SLSQ Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy please, click here.
