LIFESAVING

Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club is nearing its 100th anniversary in 2024.  While life has changed dramatically in the last century, one thing remains the same: Queenscliff SLSC is focused on protecting life and saving lives on Queenscliff beach.

Patrols are the foundation of surf lifesaving.  Our volunteer lifesavers patrol Queenscliff Beach from the pool to the pipe north of North Steyne on weekends and public holidays from the end of September and finish on ANZAC Day every year. We have 12 patrols at Queenscliff led by very capable Patrol Captains, Vice Captains, Bronze and Surf Rescue Certificate members. Collectively our Lifesavers give approximately 10,000 hours of their time striving to ensure there are no lives lost on Queenscliff Beach during patrols.

Our Club Captain is the operational leader of the Club responsible for the general conduct of members and can require any member to perform any reasonable duty.  The Club Captain arranges patrols, selects patrol members and captains and ensures all members for patrol are proficient.  If you would like to contact our Club Captain or Vice Club Captain, contact details are below.

What’s involved?

There are two patrols each day running from 8:45 am to 1:30 pm and 1:15 pm to 6:00 pm during daylight saving and 8:45 am to 1:00 pm and 12:45 pm to 5:00 pm during the rest of the season. Each patrol has around 10 shifts a season.

Patrolling members are required to undergo skills maintenance (proficiency) for their relevant awards each year in order to remain as an active patrolling member covered by insurance during any one season.

You can be a part of that by joining the Club and doing your Surf Rescue Certificate (13-14 Years of age) or Bronze Medallion (15 years and above)

Speak to one of the Surf Life Savers on the beach or our Club Captain who will get you started.

Nipper parents are particularly encouraged to do their Bronze Medallion.
