BECOME A

 LIFEGUARD

Volunteer Lifeguards patrol from Labour weekend to Easter weekend each year. You would be placed in a patrol that is rostered on every 4 weeks (one of 4 Patrols). Each patrol has around 20 to 30 Lifeguards so there is plenty of experienced help at hand.

In order to patrol you need to gain a Surf Lifeguard Award.

To qualify for the Surf Lifeguard Award, you must be 14 years or older, and complete the following:

  • Swimming 400m in less than 9 minutes in a pool

  • Performing a tube rescue both in the pool and the surf

  • Perform a 200m run, 200m swim, 200m run at a West Coast beach

  • Be able to demonstrate competence in CPR and First Aid

  • Be able to demonstrate use of a Surf radio and signal flags

  • Answer 32 out of 40 theory questions in a written test 

This may sound like a mission but we have a structured training programme in place to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for you to become a lifeguard
