Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club
Since 1952, Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club (ASLSC) has been an active member of the local community, patrolling the beaches, providing sport and recreation, skill development and offering frontline first aid and emergency services. We have almost 2,000 members - the largest of Victorian clubs and we are at the forefront of lifesaving services, with many innovative programs such as our patrolling service, Anglesea Surf Rescue, and our inclusive Starfish Nipper program which is being implemented by many clubs around Australia. Each summer club members perform between 10 and 30 rescues and over 400 preventative actions.
ASLSC runs Victoria’s largest Nipper (age 6 to 13) programs with over 600 participants taking place in January with additional activities throughout the year. This program is complimented with specific development programs for our 14 to 17 year old members to assist their integration into the senior area of the Club.
ASLSC is also recognised at both the state and national level as a premier competition club with Gold Medals and numerous finalists at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships over the past 35 years and we have also performed well on the international stage with gold medals in a number of disciplines at the World Championships.
Our clubhouse overlooks the main beach and has one of the most spectacular views along the Surf Coast. As well as housing the clubs emergency equipment it also provides office and training facilities to members and, in the summer months, is a meeting place for members and guests.
Over summer, the Club Café operates in the Ray Marsh Room offering meals including Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner or for a coffee and light snacks. The bar is open for business during Lunch and Dinner. Members enjoy a 10% discount.
ASLSC appreciates the worth of its unique environment and as well as utilizing its facilities for club functions the club encourages local community groups to make use of the facility.
