“The history of Maroochydore SLSC is a history of the thousands of men and women, who over a century, have belonged, trained, rowed, swum, run, marched
and paddled for the Club. They have turned up for patrols, pulled people from the water, made others laugh and sometimes cry and regarded it all as being a wonderful way to live.

Maroochydore SLSC has produced great surf
lifesavers, great champions in surf sports, great coaches, officials and administrators. Maroochydore SLSC is to be congratulated on its fine Centenary History, but most importantly, for its 100 years of selfless service to the bathing public.”

Become an Active Life Saver in our club!

To become a volunteer lifesaver the first award you need to gain is the Bronze Medallion. Once you have gained your Bronze Medallion, active members are then placed onto a patrol roster and are expected to perform voluntary patrols for the Club between September and May.
