The patrolling team make up an integral part of the Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club. From mid November through to late April we patrol the beach and ensure the safety of the general public. This year our volunteer lifesavers will patrol the beach at the following times:
12th November 2022 to 24th December 2022 – Saturdays 1pm to 5pm and Sundays 10am to 5pm
26th December 2022 to 26th February 2023 – Saturdays 1pm to 6pm and Sundays and Public Holdiays 10am to 6pm
27th February 2023 to 23rd April 2023 – Saturdays 1pm to 5pm and Sundays and Public Holidays 10am to 5pm
Christmas Day – Beach Not Patrolled
Each patrol has a captain, and a senior mentor, both of whom will be experienced and qualified to ensure the smooth running of their select patrols. Then underneath them we have members, a spread between Bronze Medallion, SRC, and more senior and highly qualified members. Each patrol has around 8-12 patrols across the season, so the load of patrol is spread evenly and fairly across all members.
There are two different types of patrols, the competition and the non-competition. This is a distinction only for the ease of timetabling with the competition members having Surf Life Saving competitions to attend regularly.
For those members who are not allocated to a specific patrol, you are welcome and encouraged to come down and patrol whenever it suits you, your participation would be a fantastic addition to the patrol teams.
Patrol teams and rosters have been emailed to all members and published on the club website. Members can also view their patrol roster and previous patrol hours by logging into their Members Portal account.
If members have any queries regarding their patrols they should contact us via our contact form with the subject line: patrols.
