Becoming a member

Membership is open to all, with the club consisting of members from all walks of life. There is no need to be a champion swimmer as club activities and patrolling obligations are many and varied.

Becoming a member of Mackay Surf Life Saving Club includes insurance coverage and affiliation with both Surf Life Saving Queensland and Surf Life Saving Australia. Membership forms are available from the Club office or can be downloaded from our website. All membership fees must be paid before you can participate in any club activities including training courses. Please make sure that you include all up to date information when becoming a member or renewing.

Surf Life saving Australia operates an online membership database called Lifesaving Online.

Lifesaving Online is located within the SLSA Members Portal
