Encouraging increased opportunities

Lifesaving is for everyone, of all ages and abilities and sport is a fantastic way for our patrolling members to actively train so they are rescue ready when patrolling our beaches. We are very grateful to Lorne SLSC and the local community for hosting us in this great region and we can't wait to return in two weeks' time for the Victorian Junior Championships.
