Want to join us? Become a Surf Lifesaver.
A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer who patrols our beaches on weekends and public holidays.
Surf lifesavers take on a variety of roles including aquatic rescues, providing first aid and emergency care and educating the public about the dangers of the surf.
Becoming a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding. You can enjoy a healthy lifestyle, be trained in aquatic rescue, make new mates, compete in surf sports events and give something back to your local community. At some point you might also help save someone’s life.
To become a surf lifesaver, you will need to obtain your Surf Lifesaving Bronze Medallion qualification, from there you will become an Active Patrolling member of Cooks Hill.
To hold a Bronze Medallion, you must be at least 15 and demonstrate proficiency in surf awareness, survival, patrol and rescue procedures, emergency care plus a knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
Once you’ve successfully gained a Bronze Medallion and have joined our club, you can wear the red and yellow uniform and proudly call yourself a surf lifesaver. Your club will assign you to a patrol team where you’ll build skills and experience with the help of other qualified lifesavers.
