The Mooloolaba Surf Lifesaving Club was established in 1922 and has grown to become one of the premier Surf Lifesaving Clubs in Australia.
Our rich club history has set the solid foundations for what our club is based on today. We live by a set of morals and values outlining a strong community focus and emphasising tradition, respect and Australian Beach Culture.
An Iconic Club
Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club has 300 classiﬁed active patrol members who volunteer their time.
From September to May each year our volunteers perform over 14,000 patrol hours between them on Mooloolaba Beach as well as supporting surrounding clubs.
Combining the community service our members oﬀer on patrol with the Council Lifeguard service, the beach is patrolled 7 days a week every day of the year.
Our Volunteers and Members
Training is a vital part of the operation of the Lifesaving Club with all patrol members trained by the volunteer Training Oﬃcers in lifesaving skills. These skills are updated each year to ensure a high standard is maintained. We also host a number of development camps for youth to ensure they are given the conﬁdence and leadership skills required to lead a successful career in surf life saving.
Our training, education and development eﬀorts don’t ﬁnish at the club. We reach out into the community and oﬀer surf safety and awareness talks to school groups and people visiting from interstate and overseas.
Our club welcomes new members as we build for the future.
Fun and Fitness for the Whole Family
The Club oﬀers various activities for members from Nippers to Masters. Surf Sports oﬀers the members a chance to test their skills both on the water and on the beach with ski and board paddling, swimming, beach sprints and ﬂags, surf boats and also lifesaving skills tested at local, state and national carnivals each season.
