Surf Life Saving is an inclusive organisation that offers something for everyone. We want all Australians to live an active life, to get involved in life, to participate, and to help save life.

You can do this by becoming a surf lifesaver, joining your kids up to nippers and getting them active, volunteering by becoming an age manager or helping out with the club barbecue on the weekend, fund-raising, or simply, donating to our cause. The possibilities are endless.

Becoming part of Surf Life Saving means embracing the Australian way of life, meeting great people and getting involved – it means being Australian for life.  Check out some of the ways you can help at sls.com.au/get-involved and Surf Life Saving Queensland's site.  For more local information, explore this site and our Members Handbook.

How to create a Lifesaving Online account

Top tips

One account per member.  Lifesaving Online system maintains and manages individual person’s membership records and therefore each family member has their own entry (Username and Password) to access their Lifesaving Online account (Surfguard record) – there is no family record.  The Lifesaving Online system is set up this way because we patrol as individuals, earn awards as individuals, and have individual personal details.  Easiest method is create an account for one adult first, and then populate extra family members information by auto-filling.  Provide a parent's e-mail and mobile phone number for children without their own, and use same password for family to recall easily.

We text and e-mail.  To keep costs down and communication up, we use e-mail and SMS texts a lot.  Keep this information current, and think carefully before ticking to not receive SMS messages or e-mails.

Garbage in, garbage out.  you.  If your personal details change, please update them promptly yourself using Lifesaving Online.
