Members

Our club has over 490 members who range in age from 5 to 60+ years, enjoy club competition beach sprints and flags; and swim, board, boat rowing and other water events at Middleton Beach on most Sundays from November through to April each year as well as participating in regional, state and national titles.  We have approximately 120 active patrol members.

These events include beach sprints and flags; swim, board, iron person, boat rowing as well as various combinations of these.

Being part of the club helps you to build teamwork skills, enhance your network of friends, learn lifesaving skills, get physically fit and provide a vital job to the community.

We also have training sessions at Middleton Beach during the week, enjoying the ‘life of the beach.’

In addition to the skilled male and female surf lifesavers, we also need club members for coaching, supporters, officials, assessors and administration so there is something for everyone to either learn, teach or develop.

History

The Albany Surf Life Saving Club started as the Naval & Military Sea Bathing Club in 1917 and have been a part of the Albany community for many years that included a street march in the 1950’s down Albany’s main street (York Street) every year to celebrate the start of summer.

Our members have been attaining their Bronze Medallions for a long period of time as shown below.

Bronze Medallions were also awarded to members in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s and still continues today.
