Queensland Surf Clubs are on the recruitment drive
Surf Life Saving Clubs are the backbone of the community but they need more people to get involved.
A national membership recruitment campaign, “Our club is your club” launched today and targets a new generation of surf lifesavers to sign up to a surf life saving club.
The campaign showcases the community and family feeling of being part of a surf club and the important work volunteers do each year in keeping beaches safe.
With millions of visitors flocking to Queensland beaches every year, volunteer surf lifesavers are vital. Last season they saved more than 750 people, performed 78,748 preventative actions and 14,171 first aid treatments.
SLSQ Membership Services Manager Jamie Findlay said all clubs are more than open to welcoming new members.
“Whether you’re a past member looking to get involved again or a completely new member, we are encouraging everyone to join,” he said.
“There are plenty of opportunities on and off the beach for members of the community to get involved in their local surf lifesaving club.
“It’s a great way to meet other people, gain new friends and become part of a family.”
Surf Life Saving Clubs are hubs for the community and deliver more than just an on-beach safety service but offer training, education, recreation, a place to socialise and give people a sense of purpose and belonging.
The recruitment campaign will be launched nationwide with Surf Life Saving Australia and all states and territories collaborating to achieve one common goal – to bring our members new and old back home.
