Background: The concept of Roll Call goes back to tradition days in Lifesaving where Members were called upon for different duties or social gatherings as an expectation of attendance. The roll was called to note attendance and sometimes there was a punishment for non attendance. Very similar to the concept of being in a beach patrol and fulfilling your obligation.
Of course, things have changed and nowadays and it’s a way for our membership to have something to feel apart of and attend no matter what part of the club you are interested in. Whether it be a Nipper, Patrolling Member, Surf Sport Competitor or “Friend of The Club”.
With the loss of our Clubrooms last season we called the Roll in various venues to support our sponsors and supporters as well as to provide a venue for Members to gather and bond.
This season we continue with the concept, but at The Club. Throughout the season we will change the events for Roll Call and include some lifesaving twists for everyone to enjoy. We can’t wait to see ALL members supporting this concept and support each other in our diverse Club environment.
Yours in lifesaving,
Brad Watson (Club Captain) and Tara Irvin (Vice Captain)

We are about to enter a new era with our new Club Rooms ready for Life Saving Patrols. After more than a decade in the making, the biggest Surf Life Saving Club re-development in the state is complete. Boasting a new patrol and first aid area, training and change rooms, as well as a jet-ski storage area, the complete rebuild provides volunteer patrolling members state-of-the-art facilities that will sustain vital lifesaving services well into the future. Fundraising efforts by the club, as well as significant contributions from The State Government, Surf Life Saving SA and the Alexandrina Council supported the project. The Clubrooms will be opened in stages, with priority being given to getting lifesaving operations up and running, and having members familiarising themselves with the building and its technologies. After that upstairs will open and the club can’t wait to welcome South Australians to have a drink at the new bar with its magnificent views of Horseshoe Bay.
The Official Opening will be held on November 20th 2021.
Exciting times ahead so put ya hand up and let’s get our Club happening.

Many of our Nippers probably have their own mobile phones, so thought would try something new and get messages straight to them as well as their parents. If you would like them to be involved please download the team app from google or app store to join. (Please bear with us as we are trialling this for first time!) Of course everything will still be on our webpage, social media and emails.
Look forward to seeing you all on the beach in November.
Interested in competing against other Juniors both in our club and in the State and developing surf sport skills, then our Carnival Kids program is for you. For any further queries contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org
