Join a club

Surf Life Saving Clubs offer something for everyone, with a range of different ways to get involved.

Become a surf lifesaver

A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols WA beaches on weekends and public holidays during the surf lifesaving season. They undertake a number of roles including aquatic rescues, providing first aid and emergency care and providing surf safety information to the public.

Becoming a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding. You can lead a fit and healthy lifestyle, become trained in aquatic safety skills, make new mates, compete in surf sports, and give something back to your local community. You may also help save someone’s life one day.

What’s involved

To become a Surf Lifesaver you need to join your local Surf Life Saving Club. You will need to obtain your Bronze Medallion.

Once you’ve successfully completed your Bronze Medallion and have signed up with your local club, you will be eligible to wear the red and yellow. You will then be allocated your patrol roster and be eligible to compete after having met your patrol requirements.

How do I sign up
