Becoming a lifesaver is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself, your family and the community. Not only are you keeping the public safe on the beach, you are also building bonds and friendships that last a lifetime.

To become a Surf Lifesaver you need to be 15 years of age and undertake the Bronze Medallion course. This provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge of patrolling and surf awareness in order for you to participate in lifesaving operations.

The Patrol Rosters are completed each season based on the agreements the Club has with Surf Life Saving Australia, Surf Life Saving Qld and Sunshine Coast Branch.

The allocation of members to each Patrol may change to ensure we have a balanced number of members and SLSA awards on each Patrol to meet our obligations under the Patrol Service Agreement.

Wednesday evenings (theory) are held upstairs in the surf club function room and start at 6pm. Saturday and Sunday mornings (practical) are held on Mooloolaba Beach in front of the clubhouse.
