Water Safety

Woodside Nippers

Aside from our commitment to volunteer patrols, our awarded members also provide water safety for our Nipper and Youth programs. This is a deeply rewarding role, not only do you contribute to the safety of junior members undertaking their weekly activities, but you can also impart your skills and knowledge adding to their development. There are several ways in which you can get involved, depending upon your own experience and ability. The club will provide training for each level, as follows: First Aid Certificate holders are always required whenever we undertake any beach and water activity. Training is provided for members that wish to undertake this. Nipper Adult Assistant and Nipper Rescue Certificate are two great ways for parents to get involved and provide additional safety resources, with training delivered on the beach. Surf Rescue Certificate and Bronze Medallion are nationally recognised awards which require more indepth training and a skills assessment, which equip you to provide the full range of water safety and support.


In conjunction with other South West Clubs, Smiths Beach SLSC provides volunteers for events requiring water safety in our local area. These include events such as the Ironman and the Busselton Jetty Swim. This is a fabulous way to keep our members skilled up, support our local community and bring valuable funds back to our Club.
