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 13 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.

Our Club Captains are the operational leaders of the Club responsible for the general conduct of members and can require any member to perform any reasonable duty.  The Club Captains arrange patrols, select patrol members and captains and ensure all members for patrol are proficient.  If you would like to contact either of our Club Captains they are:

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 one or our Club Captains and they will get you started. or

Nipper parents are particularly encouraged to do their Bronze Medallion.
