Become A Surf Lifesaver
With over 30,000 visitors to Stockton Beach each year Stockton Surf Life Saving Club is always looking for committed volunteers to become a surf lifesaver and help patrol the beach.
When you become a surf lifesaver, you are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to save a life.
Stockton Surf Life Saving Club endeavours to accommodate every member of the community, irrespective of any limiting or permanent disability. Stockton Surf Life Saving Club is one of the first clubs to provide a specially built all-terrain amphibious wheelchair designed for people with different abilities who may need assistance in accessing the water safely and reliably.

100+ Years Of Surf Life Saving
Welcome to Stockton Surf Lifesaving Club
The Stockton Club was formed in 1908 and has served to protect the coastline continuously ever since. Stockton SLSC is situated at the southern end of the Stockton Bight, which stretches from the northern side of the Hunter River at Newcastle to Birubi Point, a distance of 23 miles.
The club is a local community organisation operated by volunteers who are dedicated to protecting members of the public who surf and swim at the beach.
The Surf Club provides lifesaving services over the summer months, with members patrolling the beach on weekends and public holidays from September-April each year. The Club has a range of programs for everyone, including Nippers Program, a Youth Development Program, Surf Sports and provides a range of education and training.
All active club members are encouraged to obtain the relevant award(s) to gain qualifications and experience in specific roles within the surf life saving movement.
The minimum requirement for active patrol members is the Surf Rescue Certificate (13-14 years of age) and the Bronze Medallion (15 years and over). More information on club membership can be obtained here.
