Surf Life Saving South Australia
SLSSA remains the key agency for beach safety and a vital community service playing a fundamental role in building healthy communities in addressing community issues and government policies such as obesity, physical activity, youth development, safer communities, training and education, and family.
A surf lifesaving club is the heart of any beach, providing better health outcomes for South Australians of all ages. It is a meeting place, a training college, a fitness and recreation centre, an emergency evacuation centre, conference room, social and wedding function centre that encourages physical activity and teaches important Australian values - volunteerism, family, leadership, teamwork, meeting challenges, and pursuing excellence.
Today, the Association comprises Surf Life Saving South Australia Inc. (SLSSA) which primarily governs and co-ordinates surf lifesaving in SA, and surf lifesaving clubs strategically located around the SA coastline. From Whyalla to Port Elliot, over 5,500 members aged seven years to over 70 contribute to a volunteer emergency service of the highest standard.
West Beach SLSC (visit link)
The West Beach Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1956 by a number of local concerned residents with the assistance of a number of members from Henley Surf Life Saving Club. The clubs limited equipment was stored at Henley Sailing Club until the 'Tin Shed' was constructed adjacent to the toilets to the north of the clubs present location.
The Club has, over the last 5 years, seen a steady revival with the clubrooms extensively renovated, a strong growing junior division & hosting of numerous surf carnivals and state events.
Located due west of the city of Adelaide in South Australia, keeping watch over a 2 km stretch of coast from North Glenelg to the Torrens River Mouth. With the use of a patrol base in front of the clubrooms and roving patrols life savers can provide assistance to the public.
