There are three Surf Life Saving Club's (SLSC) in the NT.
Two in Darwin and one in Nhulunbuy. You can join from the age of 5 years - there's no upper limit!  

Take the plunge and join today!

It’s great that you’d like to get involved in the movement and make a difference. 

You can do this by becoming a surf lifesaver, getting your kids involved in our Nippers junior activities program, volunteering to be an age manager or helping out with the club barbeque on the weekend. Off the beach, you can help us with fundraising and sponsorship, learn first aid or CPR so you can help save a life one day, or simply donate to keep lifesavers on our beaches. The possibilities are endless.

By joining a club you can become a coach, official, athlete, fundraiser, supervisor for junior activity programs, committee member, radio operator, trainer and assessor, or rescue boat driver.

The advice on these pages is generic and each club may have slightly different membership requirements. Each membership category attracts a club membership fee and again, clubs will differ slightly.
