Get Involved in Surf Life Saving Illawarra

ABSOLUTELY ANYONE CAN JOIN! HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT BECOMING A VOLUNTEER SURF LIFESAVER? WE NEED A TEAM OF SKILLED AND SUPPORTIVE MEMBERS TO NOT ONLY PATROL THE ILLAWARRA’S BEACHES, BUT TO FILL A NUMBER OF OTHER IMPORTANT ROLES.

You could be a coach, official, athlete, fundraiser, supervisor for our junior activities program, committee member, radio operator, trainer and assessor, or rescue boat driver. We even have roles for people who love to cook up a BBQ! The list doesn’t stop there. Did we mention you can also join as long as you are five years of age? You don’t even have to be a super fit swimmer! Nor do you have to get your toes wet if you don’t want to. As long as you have a positive attitude, you’ve got what it takes

Become part of an Australian icon, and become a lifesaver! No matter if you are young or simply young at heart. There’s a role for everyone on and off the beach. You can make a difference to the safety of our beaches, and your community.

All sorts of people are surf lifesavers. They come from all walks of life, in all shapes and sizes. Surf lifesaving is built on volunteers who love the beach and their community, are looking for fun, fitness, and want new skills and challenges.
