Lifesaving pathways

Whether setting up patrol areas or rescuing in heavy surf, every Lifeguard knows the powerful motivation of saving or protecting a life.  It is a motivation that marks Surf Life Saving as more than just 'something to do' at the weekend.

When you turn 14 you can sit your Surf Lifeguard Award and once you have your award there are a range of programmes and other awards you can participate in to develop your skills further.
