membership details

We are pleased that you have decided to join our club and we trust you will have an enjoyable experience with us at Spencer Park.

We have four different membership catagories covering all ages and for any level of involvement in the club. Most members are 'Active' members, and we also offer an 'Associate' membership for people who just want to have a social affiliation.


Senior Patrolling: The member is 14 years of age or over as at 30th September preceding the season and is a qualified lifeguard ( or is training to be a lifeguard) and carries out patrolling duties

Junior: The member is 13 years of age or under as at 30th September preceding the season.

Club Official: The member does not carry out patrolling duties but holds an appointed club officiating role, e.g. committee member, coach, junior coordinator, surf official etc.

Associate: The member is not actively involved in lifeguarding or sport programmes but has a social affiliation with the club.


The membership year is from 1st July to 30th June.
