Surf Life Saving is about having fun, being physically fit, learning teamwork and aquatic safety skills, competing in surf sports, and helping make swimming in our oceans a safer pastime. It offers a range of opportunities which will promote:
- A healthy lifestyle
- A sense of pride
- A sense of responsibility and purpose
- Positive social relationships
Information about joining our club is found in our memberships section.
As an active patrolling member of our club you will be allocated to a patrol team and will be expected to attend each of your rostered patrols (typically 11 x half-day patrols each season). Patrols are the most important component of Club activities.
While on patrol your duties will involve:
- Observing swimmers
- Attending to any minor first aid cases
- Educating members of the public about water safety
- Radio operations
- Performing any rescues as directed by the Patrol Captain
A detailed description of patrolling activities / requirements is located in the Lifesaving Operations Procedures Guide (PDF).
Dee Why Beach will be patrolled by Volunteer Lifesavers on weekends and public holidays from Saturday 19th September 2015 – Monday 25th April 2016.
