Fairhaven SLSC Membership

Fairhaven SLSC has proudly provided a community service since 1957.

With over 1500 members covering a range of membership types including active (patrolling) and non-patrolling members – the club is thriving.

FSLSC operates on funds raised by sponsorships, grants, donations and of course membership fees.

The club relies on membership to continue to provide these lifesaving community services.

Your membership does not only cover insurance for the individual member (or members listed within a family) but also gives access to a range of club areas depending on the membership category.

To find out more about which membership category best suits you, and what is included in your fees, please select the relevant section from the menu above.


General Information for All Members

Enquiries to: Membership: [email protected]

Only Financial Members are entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting.

All members who turn 18 by 30 September 2016 are classified as a senior active (if they hold a bronze medallion) or an associate member (non-patrolling). Unless they are one of two adults in a family membership, they must have their own online account and pay the appropriate associate membership fee, they cannot be included in a family membership renewal.

Date of Birth: Please get the date of birth correct. It is part of the unique identification of the person and is difficult to change once the person is in the system.

Email address: The club requires you to use an email address to register online and to enable efficient and current communication. These details are not used for any other purpose.

If you are changing your email address, particularly if you are leaving SCHOOL or UNIVERSITY, please log in to the Members Portal and change your personal details at “Personal Details” tab at: portal.sls.com.au

Phone Number: Please check that your mobile number (and that listed for your children) is correct as the club sends communications via SMS for a number of areas within the club like patrols and nippers.

Occupation/Expertise: The club is run by volunteers from a range of backgrounds. All members are requested to complete their occupation or area of expertise so the club has the opportunity to call on your assistance in your relevant field, if the need arises.

Club Policies:

As per the membership application and renewal process you will have agreed to point 2 of the declaration:

2. If my application for membership is accepted I will be a member of SLSC “Fairhaven”, branch “Surf Coast (Area)”, State Centre “Life Saving Victoria” & SLSA. I acknowledge my application will be deemed to be accepted upon my participation in SLS Activities and I acknowledge that I will be bound by and agree to comply with the constitutions, regulations and policies of the SLS Organisations. These rules are necessary and reasonable for promoting SLSA and surf lifesaving as a community service.

All members must therefore read the club policies found on the constitution page of this website. Members should also be familiar with LSV and SLSA policies which can be found in the Members Portal Library.
