Member Categories

For membership purposes, ages are determined at midnight 30 September. Our membership categories are:

  • Active Senior (18 years plus): Age 18 or over active surf lifesavers (either are a lifesaver or have decided to train to become one). Members must have a proficient bronze medallion and do patrols.
  • Active (15 – 18 years): Active life savers but under 18. Members must have a proficient bronze medallion and do patrols.
  • Cadet (Under 15): These members gain their Surf Rescue Certificate to allow them to become a Cadet Lifesaver and do patrols. They then train to become fully qualified surf lifesavers. There is no need for a parent to register. Members who are Under 14 need to register as Nippers and have a parent registered as well.
  • Active Reserve: These members have satisfactorily patrolled for over 8 years consecutively, or 10 years (broken) and as such, are only required to do a minimum number of patrols each season.
  • Long Service: These members have undertaken a total of 10 years satisfactory full patrolling (or 8 years of full patrols and 4 years Reserve Active patrols and are no longer required to do patrols, but are welcome to continue patrolling).
  • Life Member: A special prestigious category of membership reserved for those who are honoured in recognition of many years of ongoing commitment to the Club. Nominees for this category are discussed and voted on at the Club’s Annual General Meeting.
