Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1953 and from small beginnings of 8 foundation members and 1 patrol. The club has grown to a membership base of nearly 1000 with around 400 junior and over 500 senior members.
The Club is run by a Board of Directors made up of 5 Directors, a Club Captain and President. A Vice President is nominated by the Board from the existing Directors. The Directors are responsible for the areas of Surf Sports, Lifesaving & Education, Junior Activities, Promotions & Marketing and Finance & Administration. The Board of Directors is supported by a Board of Operations. The Board of Operations is made up of the Club Captain and Directors and Managers from the Lifesaving, Education, Surf Sports and Youth areas. This board reports to the Board of Directors for all club operational or "beach related" matters.
The Club employs a part time administrator who is in attendance at the club Monday through Friday from 9am to 2pm, and can assist with most of your enquiries.
Membership starts with our U/8’s through to U/14’s in the junior division with U/15’s, 17’s, 19’s and Open members in the senior division. Age grouping is set by the age you are as at the 30th September of the current year.
Whilst we are always looking for new members, we do have space and water safety considerations which sometimes preclude the Club from being able to accept all memberships in our junior division. In particular the U/9, 10 and 11 age groups. For this reason we host two separate enrolment dates for the junior area one for returning members and one for new members. The dates for each enrolment are shown in the club calendar information.
Club fees are reasonable and details are available under the Join Our Club tab.
The Club has a proud history in Lifesaving, being responsible for close to half the reported rescues performed in Western Australia whilst patrolling the beaches from October through to March each season. We are always on the lookout for new members who would like to be part of this great volunteer organisation.
Trigg Island SLSC is also one of the strongest competitive clubs in Western Australia having dominated both the Senior and Junior divisions for the last decade. This is due primarily to high calibre and dedication of our coaches in all areas of competition arenas. Details of our coaches and coaching programs can be found under the Surf Sports tab.
Every Sunday throughout the season the cub holds a cub swim and other activities for senior members commencing at 9.30am. Junior club activities are also conducted on Sunday morning’s commencing at 9.00am.
