CREATING GREAT AUSTRALIANS
SURF LIFE SAVING
We all love a day at the beach. However, the surf can be unpredictable. That's why lifeguards put up the red and yellow flags to show you the supervised area.
Staying safe and making the most of the coast requires knowledge and skills. Tannum Sands Surf Life Saving Club is about helping you to enjoy our beautiful coast and to stay safe..
There are many ways in which you can get involved the Tannum Sands Surf Life Saving Club as a volunteer. Tannum Sands SLSC has opportunities for people to be an active patrol member saving lives on the beach, an age manager for Nippers on the weekend or as a volunteer club official working behind the scenes to ensure things run smoothly.
Nippers is a junior activities program that introduces children aged 5 to 15 to Surf Life Saving. It’s a great way for children to make friends, be active and learn how to enjoy the beach safely. Nippers first learn about surf awareness and safety. As they progress through the various age groups, nippers will engage in wading, running, ocean swimming, board paddling and lifesaving skills as well as resuscitation and first aid.
