Experience Surf Club Open Day This Weekend

This Sunday 21st September Surf Life Saving Clubs across the state will throw their doors open to the public to provide an inside look at what being a part of a surf club is all about.

For the third year of the program in NSW, 68 Surf Clubs will be hosting a number of activities including lifesaving demonstrations, clubhouse tours, barbecues and displays. Some will also be offering people the chance to try out a range of beach activities and rescue scenarios first hand, to give them a genuine feel for the challenges and excitement of surf lifesaving.

SLSNSW Director of Member Services, Glenn Langley, said the Surf Club Open Day would give the public the opportunity to see the wide variety of activities they could get involved in at a surf club.

“With the lifesaving season beginning this weekend for another year, now is a great time to think about joining a surf club and giving back to the community,” said Mr Langley.

“With more than 75,000 people involved in Surf Life Saving throughout NSW including people of all ages and walks of life, now is the perfect time to join a surf club. There are literally hundreds of volunteer roles to choose from, everything from patrolling the beach on a weekend, to radio communications, administration and fundraising, or managing a team of competitors at a surf carnival. Everyone has what it takes to be a surf lifesaver.

“There are so many benefits to joining a surf club. Apart from learning vital lifesaving skills, you can get involved with support services such as powered water craft patrols, get fit and healthy participating in surf sports and involve your kids in a fun range of nipper activities that will help their growth and development.

“One of the great things about joining a surf club is that you walk into a ready-made group of friends. It’s also a great way to spend some family time together, while doing something good for the community,” said Glenn Langley.

Surf Life Saving NSW invites you to come down to your local surf club and learn more about who we are, what we do and how you and your family can become involved with our great organisation.
