One of the movement’s greatest strengths is that it is community minded. For those wanting to become part of the fabric of a lifesaving club but are unable to patrol due to health issues or work commitments, this type of membership is an option to stay involved.

Members must be at least 35 years of age and have full access to club facilities including the option to join the gym at the current published rate. All club members are subject to the club’s constitution and regulations. A club access tag is provided to all associate members.

To join as an Associate Member, please click here to register via the Surf Life Saving Australia membership portal. All memberships must be registered via this portal.
