HOW TO BECOME A LIFESAVER AND AN ACTIVE MEMBER of mooloolaba surf life saving club
There’s a role for everyone, and the skills you learn along the way will not only save lives and help the community, but potentially put you on a pathway to places you never thought possible. You will also meet people from all walks of life, form life-long friendships and have fun along the way.
We always welcome new members and would love you to join our Club’s Community!
Our Club pride ourselves on doing the best we can to support you in finding your membership pathway. Being a member of Mooloolaba SLSC enables you to experience, develop and serve our Community in a secure and respectful environment.
Lifesavers in our Club become part of a patrol team and patrol our beach on a rostered basis, under the guidance of your Patrol Captain and our Club Captain. We operate in line with all guidelines led by Surf Life Saving Australia.
One of the first steps in becoming a member of Mooloolaba SLSC is gaining an award which enables you to become an Active Patrolling Member.
Bronze Medallion is the most common award to start your pathway as a patrolling member, where you will learn and demonstrate all requirements of surf awareness, survival, rescue procedures and emergency care.
To participate in a Bronze course, a 400m pool swim must be achieved in less than 9 minutes.
You can become an active Patrolling Member once you are over the age of 15 years.
Visit the Nippers page of our website if you’d like to join our under 15 Junior Activities.
To join our Club and become an Active Patrolling Lifesaver, please email our Lifesaving Operations Office so we can assist you with our on-boarding process. We are happy to help, so please contact our team if you have any further questions, or if you would like a tour of our member’s facilities and clubhouse. email@example.com
Members transferring from other Surf Life Saving Clubs need to have received approval from your previous Club to Transfer OUT, before we are will receive your request to transfer IN to our Club. Please speak with your existing Club and then make contact with our Lifesaving Operations Office.
When you transfer in, existing membership categories held at your previous Club will be recognised by our Club – e.g. if you are already a Long Service Member at another club, you will also be considered a Long Service member of our club.
There are some requirements to be considered, including performing 25 patrol hours for the first 12 months of your new Long Service membership in our Club.
For other existing membership categories such as reserve active, written proof from your existing club will be required.
