Patrol - information

 

Mornington SLSC is a member of Life Saving Victoria which is the state level organisation of Surf Life Saving Australia. As part of this organisation we undertake to patrol our beaches every weekend and public holiday with the exception of Xmas Day from November through to Easter.

All our patrol members are volunteers and as such we welcome and encourage new members to become patrol members.

All members aged between 13 – 14 years who wish to compete at Junior Carnivals must gain their Surf Rescue Certificate and become active patrolling members of the club. Those members who are aged 15 years and above who wish to compete at carnivals must gain their Bronze Medallion and also become active patrol members. 

 

Of course; we do have many active patrolling members who do not compete at carnivals.

If you would like to know more please contact our Club captain - Terry Shrimpton or speak to one of our existing members about their experiences and what you can expect.

We have 5 Patrol groups each having their own Patrol captain and Vice.

Head to Team App and ask to join the Patrol group to find out the roster and which group you would prefer to join.

We have many courses running throughout the season to upskill - so reach out to Stew Lockie our Chief Instructor to discuss a pathway you are interested in following.
