Altona Life Saving Club (ALSC) actively encourages new members to join our organisation.
Whilst the core function of a life saving club is to train and educate qualified volunteer life savers to provide patrols at Altona Beach across the warmer months of the year, ALSC members benefit from a broad range of activities for members of all ages and abilities.
Our aim is to provide our members with a fun, safe and inclusive environment which is a focal point within the local community. ALSC during the course of each season runs/participates in a broad range of activities including:
- Beach patrols (subject to certain training requirements)
- Skills training activities including first aid and CPR (see awards training for more info)
- Boot camp training sessions
- Swimming training sessions
- Nippers junior life saving program (U6-U13)
- Youth involvement program (U14-18)
- State junior & senior life saving carnivals (various locations around Victoria)
- Training camps
- Family days, fundraising events and other social occasions
In addition to this, ALSC members are able to make use of the club facilities during regular patrol hours (see patrol page for more information on dates and times), including:
- Clubrooms / Kitchen / Toilets / Change rooms
- Paddle boards
- Weight training equipment
Age, competency or supervision requirements may apply.
The annual membership fees paid by our members go towards the operating expenses of the club including the maintenance and purchase of equipment and facilities in accordance with the standards and expectations set by Life Saving Victoria (LSV), our governing body.
We welcome you to apply for membership today and get involved in the life saving movement!
