Becoming a volunteer surf lifesaver is a rewarding experience

If you're driven by helping people, want to get involved in volunteering and the beach is your second home - then consider becoming a volunteer surf lifesaver.

You could save a life

Remember going to the beach when you were little? The towering red and yellow flags your parents told you to make sure you stayed between, and lifesavers in their uniforms not too far away, watching over the beach and making sure everyone was safe in the water. You probably wondered what it takes to become a surf lifesaver and how they got to that position. By training to become a volunteer lifesaver, you could be the next person to pull someone out of the water and experience the rewarding feeling of having saved a life in danger.

Join Nippers

Nippers is an education program designed for children to gain new skills and confidence at the beach, make new friends and have fun. Best of all, the skills that they learn stay with them for a lifetime and could even save a life.

Nippers is suitable for ages 5 to 13, and runs from October to March - usually on a Sunday morning (check with your local club for details).

Learn First Aid

Surf Life Saving has been saving lives for over 100 years. You know that you can count on the red and yellow to look out for you at the beach.

But, did you know that you could learn lifesaving from the experts with our range of First Aid Courses?
