Surf Life Saving provides an amazing array of competition options, the different disciplines range from beach running, ‘flags’, board events, swimming, surf skis and IRB’s racing. Alongside this are the vital disciplines of Rescue and Resuscitation, know as R & R and First Aid and March Past competitions. This wide range provides all members of the Club with an opportunity to become involved in competition.

Coaching and additional training sessions are conducted in many disciplines throughout the season.  Check the Weekly Training schedule for all the latest updates.  We have a group of swimmers that meet every morning – 7.30am weekdays, 8am weekends and public holidays, we encourage all members to join in regular swim sessions to maintain your fitness.
