About Women of Whale Team

Welcome to the Women of Whale Team! Our committee is a passionate group of individuals committed to fostering a vibrant and inclusive community for women within the surf club. Whale Beach has a proud history of women contributing at the highest level to surf lifesaving in the water as well as within the community. We seek to respect this past, fiercely support our present and dream even bigger for our future together.

Our Mission:

At the heart of our mission is the belief that everyone should have equal opportunities to enjoy and contribute to the surf club experience. The Women of Whale Team is dedicated to creating an environment that empowers, supports, and celebrates the diverse talents and interests of women in our surf lifesaving community. With this focus, our hope is to make the next 10 years the best 10 years ever for Women at Whale Beach.

What We Do:

  • Promoting Inclusivity: We actively work to ensure that all women across all age groups, ethnicities and orientations feel welcome, valued, and included in every aspect of the surf club, from training sessions to social events.
  • Encouraging Participation: Increasing community engagement is a core focus. Our committee organizes and promotes events and activities specifically designed to engage women in surf sports, fitness and other club initiatives. Whether you're a seasoned surfer or a beginner, there's a place for you to thrive in our community.
  • Education and Skill Development: We provide opportunities for skill development, education, and mentorship to empower women in their surf lifesaving community journey. This includes workshops, training sessions, and access to resources that support personal and athletic growth.
  • Advocacy and Representation: The committee serves as advocates for the interests and needs of women in the club. We aim to ensure that women's voices are heard in decision-making processes and that their achievements are recognized and celebrated. We are currently focused on electing our first ever female life members and aspirationally increase female club membership to 50% for active patrol members as well as overall club membership.

Get Involved:

We welcome all women in the surf club to join us in shaping a more inclusive and dynamic community. Whether you're interested in surf lifesaving sports, beach safety, training, first aid, social events, or contributing to our advocacy efforts, there's a place for you in the Women of Whale Team.
