Become 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.

      How can you join?

      The Surf Life Saving  Portal is a one-stop shop for all of the organisation’s member’s online needs. It is designed to unify what are currently entirely separate websites and databases into one online; soon every single SLSA service will be available through the Portal. The Portal is located at It is for use by active, registered members of surf clubs, support organisations and Lifeguards so if you have been a member of a club within the last 2 years you will be able to login directly after registering.  If you are new you can still register through the portal just follow the prompts.

      If you have been a member of another club, registration can take a little longer.  This occurs as your membership ( even lapsed memberships) are transferred from your previous club.  The Registration costs are available either from the our club website or are included in the portal and are outlined below.
