Active 18 years plus
You can join surf lifesaving at any age, and many make the decision to do their Bronze Medallion after watching their children at nippers or wishing to take part in surf sports. Many are simply happy to give back something to their local community. As an active patrolling member you are expected to be available to patrol your beach at least once a month over the summer months.
Those who are not strong swimmers are still able to patrol their beach by becoming an award member and completeing lifesaving awards such as the Senior First Aid or Radio award.
