Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club
Welcome to one of the biggest and most popular Surf Life Saving Clubs in Victoria. Check back here regularly for updates on Membership, Competition, Social Functions and Patrols.
Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club is situated on the main beach at Ocean Grove, Victoria. The township of Ocean Grove is on the southern side of the Bellarine Peninsular facing Bass Strait, is flanked by the Barwon River to the west, and is a very popular tourist resort with a permanent population of about 10,000.
Senior State Champions!
Ocean Grove SLSC has gone back to back, taking out its second successive Senior State Surf Lifesaving Championship, held 24-25 March 2018 at Apollo Bay. The club was also named Life Saving Victoria's Champion Club of the Year for the second year in succession.
Senior Club Champs
Monday 2 April. Registrations from 9.30. First event at 10.30 on the Monday morning.

Events are for U15, U17, U19, Open and Masters (male and female). No events will be combined (eg swim will be separate to iron) but U17/U19/Open events may be run as one based on numbers.
Junior State Champions!
Our amazing Nippers came first in the State Champs at Warrnambool 10-11 March. OGSLSC total points score was 366, ahead of Mentone SLSC with 345.5 points.
A huge congratulations to the whole team. We understand the hard work that everyone has put in this season.
Members and guests are invited to come and celebrate a last hurrah to the current clubhouse.
Saturday 17 March from 6.30pm in the Club Lounge.
Tickets are $30, which includes finger food and live band. Cocktail attire, and mask if you wish! Children are welcome but there is no discounted price for them. We'd prefer members to purchase tickets via Members Portal, however entry is also payable on the night.
We ask members to pay for carnival entries up front (or immediately after), once you decide to enter. This season we expect not to have to chase entry fees at all!
2017/18 entry fees (including $2 admin charge):
Standard carnivals $26
State Championships $39
Removal of surf craft from clubhouse
With the pending redevelopment of the Ocean Grove SLSC club house the Committee of Management made a decision to sell craft that had been stored at the club by non-financial members of the Ocean Grove SLSC. At least two emails were sent to all archived members requesting their removal, starting three months prior to the sale. On 18 November 2017, these craft were either sold by the club to recover some of the cost of storage or disposed of as scrap.
Financial members are also requested to take home any stored craft if they are not currently being used.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Nick Bohan 0417 034 877.
Building Project Update
The new clubroom plans are still with the City of Greater Geelong, awaiting planning approval. Go to the Members section of this website for a look at the plans, along with a letter from President David Pavia.
The latest estimate is for demolition in March 2018.
