Join A Life Saving Club

Join the movement

Our Victorian lifesaving members each play a critical role in ensuring the safety of visitors to Victorian waterways – and we’re looking to grow our family!

With more visitors to Victorian waterways each year, we rely on our volunteers and members to help ensure public safety. From volunteering between the flags to running a barbeque for our future lifesavers, there are so many diverse volunteering opportunities for every age, background and ability.

Even sparing one hour a month to contribute to your club and community makes a significant impact on the safety of visitors to Victorian waterways.

When you join a club, you join a community. Each of our 43,000 Victorian members have their own story within lifesaving with one thing in common – there really is something for everyone.
Joining your local lifesaving club is the beginning of your journey and your own unique experience. You never know how you’ll grow in lifesaving!

You can expect to:

  • Develop skills and experience
  • Form friendships with like-minded individuals
  • Stay fit and active
  • Become part of a welcoming and inclusive community

Life Saving Victoria has 57 Life Saving Clubs spanning the Victorian coastline and inland waterways. Every club has their own unique offer, helping you to get the most out of your time as a volunteer.

Lucy’s journey started by signing her kids up to nippers. Nippers is a great way for kids to learn about water safety, develop skills and make new friends. All 5 of Lucy’s children went through the nippers program and are still involved in lifesaving many years later!

Lucy didn’t intend to start volunteering herself, however when she saw how much her kids were learning and growing through the nippers program, she wanted to be a part of the fun. Now that her kids are older, she has begun to make the most of opportunities for her own personal development too!

Ron became a member after moving to a new town so that he could meet new people and stay fit and active. After joining and undertaking training, he started regularly patrolling the beach and keeping people safe around the water. Being outdoors helped him find balance with his working life. Later, he was able to make the most of opportunities available to him.

60 years later, Ron is still a member and has had some amazing experiences as a result. Now, three generations of Ron’s family are members and they have made family memories while patrolling together. Ron now volunteers by officiating at lifesaving sport events.

Reagan’s parents signed him up to nippers so that he could learn water safety and meet other young locals and become a part of the community.

Although it was never his choice to become a club member, he hasn’t looked back since! He has achieved so many great things, developed his leadership and water safety skills and learned which he takes with him everywhere he goes. He has met locals and visitors alike and loves that his club members are like an extended family to him. Reagan and his whole family are club members and they all volunteer and contribute in different ways.

Sas started her journey as a nipper and was obsessed from the get go! She now competes in lifesaving sport, manages 10 patrols and more than 600 volunteers. Sas has a love for inflatable rescue boats (IRBs) and competes in racing – she’s taken home a number of podium finishes and it’s all helped her become a better lifesaver.
