Torquay Surf Lifesaving Club

TSLSC is at forefront of lifesaving service. Torquay beach is one of the busiest beaches in Victoria. Each summer, club members patrol 3,000 hours; perform between 20 and 30 rescues and over 270 preventative actions.

Torquay SLSC is recognised nationally as a premier competition club with many gold medals and numerous finalists at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships over the past 50 years.

How To Get Involved

At the Torquay SLSC there are activities and opportunities for people of all ages and the Club provides a perfect family activity centre.

Active members

Surf Lifesaving is a learned skill and members from the age of 13 onwards can start to gain qualifying awards that allow them to participate in this icon of Australian Culture.

The Life Saving Start and Life Saving Bronze are the minimum awards required for patrolling the beach. Each December Torquay runs a one-week live in camp and its purpose is to qualify new members for these awards. This popular camp provides unique training and skill development, and is also a great opportunity to meet new friends who share the same community ideals.

Other training courses are conducted throughout the year to broaden the rescue skills of Torquay SLSC members.


Our Nipper program caters for children 7 to 13 and provides a great opportunity for them to gain surf safety information and skills. Torquay provides a fun filled intensive program over the summer school holidays, which has a total family approach. Many families make lifelong friends from their involvement in Nippers and enjoy the social activities provided. There is also a competition focus for those interested in training. Torquay SLSC is very proud of our Nipper Program and our achievements in State Competition.


The Torquay Clubhouse is set on the main beach and has one of the best views along the coast. As well as housing the Club's emergency equipment, it also provides an office and training facilities for members in the summer months, it is a meeting place for members and guests. Torquay SLSC has over 800 members of all ages. The facility is the setting for many Club functions and the Club also encourages local community groups to use our facilities.


Torquay SLSC is a highly rated competition club, both at state and national level and competes in all surf life saving competition areas including: surf boats, ski and board paddling, surf swimming, iron-person, beach sprints and beach flags. A framework of experienced coaches will cater training programs to suit your ability and provide an environment where you can achieve your goals.

Once members have obtained their minimum awards and patrolling requirements, they can compete at a local carnival, State, National or International level.
