In Australia today, there are over 160,000 members of Surf Life Saving Clubs. Over 30,000 of these people actively patrol our beaches, giving up their free time to make sure our beaches are safe. Cape Paterson Surf Life Saving Club has a great family atmosphere, whether you want to help patrol the beach, compete in surf events, have fun in the sun, keep fit, or just come down and make heaps of friends and enjoy the social activities.
In 2023, we have redesigned our membership structure to be simpler and more representative of how our club operates.
Membership Categories Active Membership 13+ Years Old - Actively patrolling Associate Membership - Actively contributing to the club; and/or - An immediate family member of an Active Member or Nipper Social Membership - Access to our social events, including Sunset Sips Nipper Membership Package - Includes 1 Associate member as required by club rules - See pricing structures below
Membership Pricing Please make sure you complete the membership process by paying the fees at the end. If membership is not paid for, it will no longer be valid. We appreciate that the cost of living continues to rise. This year's fees reflect our understanding of this, and are as follows:
Active Membership - $35
Associate Membership - $35
Social Membership - $35
Nipper Membership packages
1 Adult (Associate) + 1 Nipper - $135
2 Adults (Associates) + 1 Nipper - $170
Each additional Nipper - $60
Working With Children Check This season it is a requirement to have a Working With Children Check if you are a member at Cape Paterson SLSC and over the age of 18. The check is free for volunteers and is now compulsory at our club for all Active and Associate Members. Working With Children Check can be applied for here and your WWCC number + expiry (ideally photograph) should be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org before the commencement of the season. More information can be found on our site under Working With Children Check
Online Membership Management The quickest and easiest way to renew an existing or create your new membership is using "Life Saving Online", where you can update your details, renew your membership, pay your fees or join as a new member. If you have not used "Life Saving Online" before or, like most of us, have forgotten since you did it 12 months ago, please see helpful how-to documents.
