New Member Application

Become a Member of Coolum Surf Club

New members are always welcome to join our club. Surf lifesavers come from all walks of life and anyone, at any age, can become part of the lifesaving family and be part of this long-standing tradition.

The main award that new members obtain is the "Bronze Medallion" (certificate II in Public safety and aquatic rescue). Eligibility is subject to the following pre-requisites:

  1. 15 years of age at assessment
  2. Complete a Pool swim of 400m in 9 minutes or less

Our club also requires anyone over the age of 18 years to apply for a "Working with Children" blue card which we will assist you with. Please contact the club Administration office to obtain a form.

You can then commence a Bronze medallion course which usually involves 1 night a week and 1 day on the weekend for approximately 6-8 weeks.

What if you can't do your Bronze Medallion?

Can you still join Coolum Beach Surf Life Saving Club?

Should you not be able to swim 400m in 9 mins or less, there are other courses for awards available to you such as Radio Operators Certificate (ROC) and Apply First Aid (AFA) for you to be a patrolling member on our beach.



For any further information or inquiries, please contact our Admin staff who will be able to assist you joining our club
