"In it for life” is a catch-phrase that has been adopted by Surf Lifesaving New Zealand and its affiliated districts and clubs.

In it for life is how it often is for many that become involved. Usually starting out as young teenaged lifeguards and competitors, members stay involved and contribute to the movement as senior guards, coaches, team managers, club and district executive members and officials at competitions throughout their lives.

There are two ways you can submit a membership application (you only need to do one) : 

1. Click on the button below to complete an online application form

2. Send in a paper or scanned form

STEP A: Join the SLSNZ Database

  • This will give you a Surf Lifesaving New Zealand registration number which is important when it comes to patrolling the beach and entering surf sport carnivals. Also your details will be on the national database so you will receive news and information from Surf Life Saving New Zealand

STEP B: Either Email the Membership form to or bring a completed physical copy down to the club and hand it to someone of importance. Payment is accepted via online (please include family name in reference) or at the Club Bar.  If you click on the membership form below, it will download a blank one onto your computer.  The first link downloads an excel one, the second downloads an adobe.

Friendships formed span years, decades, clubs and countries.

At East End SLSC we offer a fun friendly club environment with opportunities for personal development, fitness, competition and recreation.

Additionally, life-guarding provides an opportunity to provide a worthwhile community service.

Club membership can be:

  • As an active lifeguard (14 years and older)
  • As an active surf sports competitor and lifeguard
  • As a supporter
  • As an official at competitions
  • As a junior surf member, learning beach safety, water confidence, competition and fun (7 to 14 year olds)

We have a membership to suit everyone from the young to the young at heart. If you want to be a social member to fully competing lifeguard on the National stage the choice is yours.

 Hi Vis Vests or lifejackets must be worn when using any boards, skis, surf boats or IRB's or taking part in any club organised training session.   This is regardless of whether it is your own personal craft or not.  If its surf lifesaving craft and it's stored at the club or you use the club to get changed its a firm club rule. 

We use facebook pages and groups to keep in touch with our members and the public.
