From 5—14 years, boys and girls can join our Nipper program and learn surf safety skills that may save their lives. Our Nippers have lots of fun and make lots of friends each Sunday from October to March each year.
Nippers can compete in surf carnivals held locally and in other areas.
From 13 years up, we’ll train you in rescue techniques, first aid, resuscitation, radio operation etc. Our experienced patrol members will guide you on your journey to becoming a qualified lifesaver and performing this vital community service. And along the way you’ll make lifelong friends, improve your fitness and obtain skills that will be useful in all areas of your life.
Lifesavers can compete in surf carnivals held locally, in other centres and even overseas—some competition areas are surf boat rowing, swimming, IRB (Inflatable Rescue Boat), beach sprints and flags and ironperson. We have qualified coaches to teach you the skills—and the rest is up to you!
If you’d like to participate in beach patrols but are not a strong swimmer, join as an Award Member and learn first aid, resuscitation and radio operation. You’ll be a vital part of our beach patrols assisting our lifesavers keep our beaches safe, as well as learning skills you can use in all areas of your life.
If you don’t wish to be involved in beach patrols, join as an Associate Member. This entitles you to use the showers, toilets and gym, and you can also train for some awards eg first aid and resuscitation.
Whatever membership category you choose, be part of Windang Surf Club and enjoy good company and social activities at our beach.
