We value a helping hand at our club, either for a couple of hours, or a whole season.

Water-based volunteering includes helping with a beach activity or assisting with water safety, coaching our Nippers or gaining a surf lifesaving qualification enabling you to join a surf lifesaving patrol.

Club-based volunteering includes food preparation for the BBQ, packing equipment away after training, providing bar or table service at club functions, cleaning duties, manning our canteen, or pitching in during a working bee. There are also administrative tasks that we welcome assistance with.


Surf Lifesaving is the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia.

We are a not-for-profit movement that exists through the efforts of our volunteers, community support, membership, donations and fundraising.
