Warrington Surf Life Saving Club

Are you ready for the beach?


Warrington Surf Life Saving Club is back in action! We are inviting all "Blueskin Bayers and beyond" to join our busy team of life guards. We welcome all keen beach-goers to join life guarding. Anyone aged 14 and upwards; there is no age upper limit actually!

Gain first aid and VHF radio skills, rescue boat and surf swimming skills, surf and paddle board skills, learn to paddle canoes or skis, help out with motor maintenance, join our social events. Come along and find out all about us on our opening day Sunday 4 November 11am.

Joining fee for a lifeguard – only $25. Good value!

Opening day for all families and our junior surf training programme (Nippers) is Sunday November 4 at 11am. Come along for a sausage sizzle and a swim. Family subs are only $45 and give you the use of our clubrooms, showers and toilets, surf boards and lots more.

Swim between the flags at Warrington Beach: weekends from November 24 until March 3 and every day between 11am and 7pm in the school holidays. We have a full-day holiday programme for 12 – 16 year olds weekly in the school holidays for fitness, and surf and rescue boat training. Join up now! No charge for the teenage holiday programme – just join the club for $25.

A BBQ lunch is held at noon every Sunday at the clubhouse for one and all – $1 per sausage, drinks for kids, mums and dads a cuppa. All beach users welcome to join us. This BBQ operates at the end of our "Nippers" junior training session and life guards roll out the BBQ to provide a snack for hungry swimmers and beach walkers.

Guy Fawkes celebration this year will be on Saturday 4 November with a community beach celebration and supervised, shared fireworks. See you on the beach at dusk… wear solid footwear and warm clothes. All welcome, life guards will be in attendance. Sausage sizzle, weather depending.

Warrington Surf Life Saving Club is proud to have the accomplished Doyle family as members. Carina Doyle has been selected for the World Championship Surf Life Saving Squad for 2012 – 2013. Carina also received University Blues for both surf lifesaving and swimming this year. Carina will represent New Zealand at the World Surf Lifesaving Championship in Adelaide in November.

A superb sporting family: brother Braden and sisters Imogen and Eilis have recently returned from the National Surf Life Saving Pool Champs with truckload of gold, silver and bronze medals. The Waikouaiti and Warrington communities are very proud of these fit and capable swimmers and surf life savers.

Coming up – Warrington will be host to several surf carnivals again this year. The first is an IRB racing event on Saturday 1 December. Come down and watch – racing starts at 9am.

Jandal Day – the Surf Life Saving annual appeal is Friday 7 December and you will see the life guards out in their yellow shirts raising funds to keep patrols on the beaches for the summer. In it For Life!
