Patrol Teams

Each season, qualified members are allocated a specific patrol team by the Patrol Officer. Please login in to Surf Life Saving Australia Members Area to identify which Patrol Team you have been allocated to. Teams are developed to ensure an appropriate level of award qualification and experience to provide the very best service and safety for our community.

If you can not do your patrol

It is YOUR responsibility to:

  1. Contact another Club member from another patrol to fill in for you. It must be with someone of similar award ie. Bronze for Bronze or IRB Driver for IRB Driver;
  2. Put details of change on the club pin up board. Give plenty of notice!
  3. Inform your Patrol Captain
  4. Make sure this change is appropriately documented on the sign on sheet
