At Whale Beach Surf Life Saving Club there is a place for everybody and anybody to get involved and we’re always happy to welcome new members. Whether you’re keen to help keep the beach safe on patrols, assist in running events or just eager to use the club’s first class facilities there is a place for you. For new members there are three categories of membership:
Active Members are required to perform patrol duties on weekends and public holidays throughout the September to April summer period. Each member is assigned to a patrol team so you’re always patrolling with the same group and fostering important friendships. The commitment is roughly 8 hours a month with full day patrols in the start and end of the season and half day patrols over the peak holiday period. Active members can be bronze medallion holders who can perform surf rescues or award members who can assist with first aid, resuscitation and a number of other important roles in a patrol, see training for more details on awards. We have active members ranging from 14 to 70 and beyond.
Associate Members aren’t required to participate in patrols throughout the season, though many assist in running our BBQs, Sunday competition events and larger club events including the Big Swim and community nights. Being an associate member is a great way to get involved in the club and use the facilities if you don’t have the time or ability to participate in patrols.
