As at 22 November 2019, Nipper numbers have reached maximum and applications are CLOSED.
Ocean Grove Surf Lifesaving Club (OGSLSC) has many different activities available for its members, including social functions and competition. However, all of these activities are designed to contribute to supporting OGSLSC's primary role, which to provide a safe beach for the public.
It is for that reason that all members aged 13 to 30 years of age must train, qualify and attend beach patrols via a roster determined by the Club Captain. Many members continue patrolling well after they turn 30, including some into their 60's. All Senior and Masters club members who wish to compete must also attend a minimum of 16 hours patrol per season and hold a current Bronze Medallion.
The OGSLSC caters for all ages over 7 years of age. More information for club members aged 7-12 can be found at our Nippers page.
All membership categories are based on a member's age and are calculated as of the 30th September for the club (summer) season.
For details please select 'How to Join' or 'How to Renew' under the Membership tab above.
From approximately October 2019 we will be offering a new category of social membership, for access to hospitality areas only.
We recommend that new members create an SLSA Members Area account after their memberships are approved.
This is a 'one-stop shop' where you can: update personal details, renew membership, view your awards and pay for eg. membership renewals, carnival entry fees and courses.
OGSLSC is currently seeking...
OGSLSC welcomes new members in all categories. However, there are some particular areas we would like to boost our numbers, for example:
New adult and returning adult active patrolling members.
You do not need to have been involved in surf lifesaving in the past to become a lifesaver, as training is available for all members. We run adult bronze courses every October/November. We also run requal days throughout the season.
Volunteers with event management and fundraising experience.
The OGSLSC (like many other surf lifesaving clubs) obtains the major portion of its funds through fundraising and sponsorship. Members willing to help run our annual Rip to River fun run and other fundraising activities would be particularly welcome.
