Jet ski for Semaphore

A new addition to our Rescue Ready Facility with SLSSA now using this location as part of their Emergency Operation Group (EOG). This will also allow a closer partnership with Police Water Operations who are located down by the Semaphore jetty.

Thanks to Neil Bisset for making this happen, it allows us to increase our rescue capability and gives our members more skills to add to their repertoire.

Planning a function once restrictions are lifted?

The health and safety of our patrons, members and the broader community is our highest priority and so we are shut for the moment, but we will be here for your next function as soon as it is safe to do so.

If you would like to spend some spare time while in isolation planning an upcoming wedding, party or corporate event, please visit our functions page on our website http://semaphoreslsc.com.au/functions/

Anzac Day

Anzac Day is one of our nation’s most significant days as we honour veterans who fought to keep us safe.

While we cannot celebrate as usual this year we would like to take a moment today to thank and remember all veterans and their families, many of whom were and continue to be members of our surf life saving community.

Lest we forget.

SLSSA board elections postponed

To maintain continuity in the current uncertain times and with the support of Club Presidents, SLSSA has postponed its Board elections until its November AGM. They were to be held in May.

Any member interested in nominating for a Board Directors role this year does not need to nominate now, further information will be sent closer to the November AGM to seek nominees. Thank you.

Community spirit

Thanks to the Semaphore SLSC for showing true community spirit by dropping off some care packs to some of our senior club members.

Stay safe and look out for each other.
