Surf Club

The Club

Coledale Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1913, since then the club has provided volunteer life savers who give their time and in one instance, their lives for the protection of the users of Coledale beach.

The club supplies patrols of life savers on weekends and public holidays during the summer months and is known as one of the smaller and friendlier clubs in the area.

It offers a range of training and amenities to its members including a good social side, both senior and junior clubs organize a range of social functions throughout the year, including regular family barbeques, band nights, quiz nights and movies.

The club can be contacted during patrol hours on 4268 2444.

Life Saving

The club operates inshore rescue boats as well as the more traditional board and tube rescue equipment. Training for surf rescue and first aid skills are held throughout the year.

Get down to the beach - New members are always welcome, regardless of previous experience, training is tailored to suit the individual’s experience, skill and fitness level. A well equipped gym for members only, helps with the fitness.

So give it a try, fun, excitement, fitness, skills and a sense of doing a vitally important job for the community. Just give a little time and commitment and we’ll give the rest.
