We were established as a Surf Life Saving Club in 1966 to serve the community around the area and maintain coastal safety for beach and water users. The club buildings were opened in 1975 and represent the amazing efforts of our early members to fund raise and provide services for the benefit of our village.
The core ethos of the club remains “Vigilance and Service” and we are proud of our training and patrol statistics where there has been no loss of life between the Surf Life Saving Flags on the stretch of Seven Mile Beach that the club continues to patrol. This does not mean the coast is incident free as our trained patrols maintain surveillance at all times and interventions are made frequently to prevent swimmers getting into difficulties in the surf, particularly if caught in a rip.
The beach is kept accessible for all users, including those needing ability support, by provision of the Shoalhaven Council Beach Wheelchair Loan Scheme https://www.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/For-Residents/Community-Facilities/Beach-Wheelchairs You can contact us about this through our club administration volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting a private message on our social media pages or by calling into the club on a patrol day (Sundays only Sept-April and during school holiday Dec/Jan Mon-Sat when Shoalhaven Council provides additional patrol services through Australian Life Guard Service)
Down time is the best time of any day, so we try to plan member social events to bring all members together, as well standalone events for Nippers, for patrol members or the community. We have a licensed premises for member social and fundraising events and serve drinks at low member rates. If you have an idea for a club social event, please chat to one of the Club Board or your patrol captain or Nippers team leaders.
