Becoming a Member

Welcome to Christies Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. It is great that you are interested in becoming a member and getting involved in the movement that truly makes a difference. There are so many options for all ages and abilities to get involved in life saving, if you are 5 or 95 there is something that will suit you.

        • Nippers is a great way to introduce children to Surf Life Saving providing activities and learning opportunities for children 5 to 13 in a fun and friendly environment.
        • Cadets are 13-15 years of age and are able to train to complete the Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC). This is their first step to becoming a patrolling Surf Lifesaver.
        • From 15 – 18 you are eligible to train for your bronze medallion and commence patrolling. Once you have this qualification there are additional opportunities for competition and use of surf craft.
        • As an adult there are many ways in which you can get involved as a surf life saving volunteer, from being an active patrol member saving lives on the beach, to being an age manager for the nippers or volunteering around the club with administration or other behind the scenes activities that ensure everything runs smoothly.
