Your Kids Saw You As a Hero?

Get your Bronze Medallion & Become a Lifesaver

The Bronze Medallion course provides participants with the skills and knowledge of patrolling and surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations. This is the core award to be a surf lifesaver in Australia.

You'll get to put yourself to the test and at the end, have the privilege of donning the iconic yellow shirt of a Surf Life Saver.

You'll have a whole lot of fun with a great bunch of people, have the satisfaction of giving back to your community, and your kids will see you as the hero you are.

The only prequisite is a timed pool swim of 400m in 9 minutes or less. We'll take care of the rest.
