New members are always welcome!
Established in 1909, Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club (Cottesloe SLSC) has had a long and proud history. Cottesloe SLSC was the first surf life saving club established in Western Australia. Cottesloe is Perth’s most popular beach and is patrolled by lifesavers and lifeguards to keep the beach as safe as possible for the community and visitors. New members are most welcome! You can join as a patrolling member, a family, or join our nippers program that gets the younger ones confident on the beach and in the surf. You may also want to join to compete in life saving events, to get fit and healthy, make new friends or enjoy the club’s vibrant social life. Whatever your reason, Cottesloe SLSC has something to suit almost everyone. Don't want to patrol and be a lifesaver, but want to help the community and be part of the social atmosphere? No problem. We have many other membership options available for you to become a club volunteer.
We are open all year round
Cottesloe SLSC is open all year round. However, volunteer patrols are limited to the season which runs between October and March. An abundance of members visit the club to go for an invigorating early morning dip, make use of the gym or enjoy a coffee or hot chocolate at the “Cott Cafe”. Surfboat, board, IRB and ski training are some activities that continue throughout the year, as do a myriad of social events. Cottesloe SLSC members like to keep the club active all year round, and love seeing new faces enjoying club life.
