Why we exist

To save lives.

We believe all Territorians should learn water safety skills and be provided with safe beaches, water environments and aquatic venues.

SLSNT works to achieve this by delivering lifesaving, development and sports programs for our members and the wider community.  In addition, SLSNT manages and delivers accredited education and training services through our Academy and professional Lifeguard services through Australian Lifeguard Services NT.

Our Vision

Zero preventable deaths in NT coastal waters.
