Acknowledging and celebrating women in lifesaving
What is Pink Patrol?
Pink Patrol consists of active female patrolling members and male champions, celebrating the contribution of girls and women to lifesaving through a designated patrol at your club.
The aim of this initiative is to acknowledge and celebrate the many contributions women past and present have played in lifesaving. It is hoped the positive role modelling will inspire and empower future generations of women and girls to confidently pursue opportunities in lifesaving and aquatics.
The powerful visual of female leaders and male champions forming a full patrol, is symbolic of the growth and capability of our female members; illustrating that females are competent lifesavers and building the diversity of lifesavers in active lifesaving roles and leadership.
The Pink Patrol mission is to to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of girls and women in shaping the lifesaving movement, and in doing so, make the opportunities and pathways in lifesaving more visible.
The vision of the Pink Patrol is for all to Victorian Clubs embrace a Pink Patrol annually.
