To join a surf club, Surf Life Saving Australia has created a webpage that will direct you to the signup process. Depending on whether you (or whoever you are joining on behalf of) have been a member of a surf club before, the method will be slightly different. The process is the same for Senior and Junior members.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHICH CLUB WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN?
First Name; Last Name; Date of Birth; Gender
Enter the CAPTCHA code
The screen will change to include the General Details screen. The mandatory fields are Email Address 1, Home/Postal Address and Emergency Contact but the more other fields you can fill out the better. There are some declaration boxes to tick at the end of the form, and some additional details to supply if the applicant is under 18
Once the form is complete, click on submit.
You also will have the option to repeat the join process on behalf of an additional person or create a Family Group. This will allow some fields to be pre-filled with information from the previous application form.

The next step is to make a payment - we cannot process the membership unless the matching fee is paid. Check the Membership Price List to see what fee you should be paying e.g. General, Associate, Junior or Active.
Log in to your Members account - https://members.sls.com.au/
If you don't have an account, which may be the case if you haven't renewed your membership in the last few years, you will need to create one.
From the members portal you can log in with your portal account details, or create a new account if required. All membership renewals are now via the members portal which has replaced the old LifesavingOnline process. See the user guides to assist with the transition required for this season.

The next step is to "Make a Payment" (We can't process your membership until it's paid for)
You can elect to pay your membership fees during the signup process, but if you need to go there later, the gateway is located here - https://pnpnet.qvalent.com/OnlinePaymentServlet?cd_community=SLSA&cd_currency=AUD
Members 16 years of age or older
All members 16 years of age or older (no matter what membership category you are applying for) are required to complete in full and sign the Volunteers declaration and provide the original signed form and proof of identification to the Secretary/JAC when you next come down to the club
If you don't have access to the online membership application, you can download the hardcopy membership form here
