Why Join Mona Vale SLSC 

To join MVSLSC is a unique opportunity that can ultimately change your life and the lives of your family and friends. One day they may be drowning or hurt and you will be the one with the skills necessary to help them – our first aid skills can be used anywhere, not just on the beach.

Don’t like the ocean? Can’t swim? No Problem!

Surf Life Saving Clubs can offer skilled opportunities in important supporting roles such as:

  • Radio communications
  • First aid
  • Administrative support
  • Competition officials
  • Trainers and coaches
  • Leadership development.

Joining is a great opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and make a significant contribution to the community. Your membership is an investment in yours and your family’s safety as well as the safety and wellbeing of our community. You can make a difference!
