Want To Be Part Of The Coolum Surf Club?
Join A Patrol
Being a member of Coolum Surf Club means patrolling the beach as part of a Patrol. Our patrols are either morning or afternoon on weekends and public holidays. On average a patrol is rostered 10-12 patrols a year from the September School Holidays to Labour Day Weekend in May.
Not A Strong Swimmer?
No worries. A Patrol is made up of different members with different awards, depending on their strengths. Whilst we have Bronze Medallion holders who are trained to rescue people from the surf; we also need Radio Operators in the tower or First Aid and Advanced Resuscitation holders on the beach.
Aside from giving back to the community by keeping our beach safe and making new friends, a financial, active member of Coolum Beach SLSC gets access to club facilities, approved patrolling and surf sports equipment and a range of other benefits.
Support Coolum Surf Club
Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?
It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.
So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
