Surf Club Open Day 2017 set to make a big splash: Sunday October 15th

Want to be a part of Surf Life Saving?
Our members don’t just patrol the beach, your local surf club has a role for everyone and plays a much bigger part in the local community than you might think.

There are dozens of roles that you can take on in your local Surf Life Saving Club which will see you making a difference to the safety of our beaches and make you feel part of the Surf Life Saving family such as:
  • putting on the red and yellow and patrolling the beach;
  • helping train up our Nippers into Lifesavers;
  • officiating at sport events;
  • training up your fellow members;
  • supporting the governance of the Club;
  • fundraising or running the barbeque;
  • jumping onto the radio to aid in communications;
  • running social events for members;
  • undertaking skilled project work within the club; or
  • filling one of the other dozens of roles available within Surf Life Saving.

Visit a Surf Club and watch the Nippers participating in beach and water activities.  Participating clubs will host a range of activities, including lifesaving demonstrations, clubhouse tours, barbecues and displays.

Some Clubs may also offer people the chance to try out a range of beach activities and rescue scenarios first hand to give them a genuine feel for the challenges and excitement of surf lifesaving.

Avalon Beach SLSC is part of the annual Surf Club Open Day. 
Grab a bbq brekkie sandwich and coffee from their Nippers kiosk, join a Clubhouse tour (on the hour from 9:00am - 11:00am). There's a Rip education and demonstration at 10:00am, Bronze Medallion Information session at 11:00am, head to the patrol tent and chat to their volunteer Lifesavers or join them for a drink in the Bangalley Bar from 4:00pm - 7:00pm. 

For the kids, a Water Slide will be up and flowing and the first 25 youngsters to arrive will receive a goodie bag. If you're interested in learning more about how you can support our Club and the many roles you can take on which will see you making a difference to the safety of our beach, come on down and introduce yourself. 

At Newport SLSC:

At Whale Beach SLSC, one of our local surf clubs that has accommodation within the clubhouse, and on the beach, you can enjoy a great view, a old drink and a barbecue. Their Bronze Medallion training starts Sunday 15 October. Contact Georgia Roberts education@whalebeachslsc.com
