From patrolling the beach, to coaching others, to learning first aid or cooking up the weekly barbecue, volunteering with the Secret Harbour Surf Life Saving Club offers plenty of opportunities for people who want to contribute.

Volunteers are being called on, with those interested encouraged to come to see what the club does when it holds its community and registration open day this weekend.

People of all ages are welcomed into the club, and although competitions can be a great way to get involved, there are plenty of other roles within the club for those who just want to have a go.

For the juniors, the club offers a nippers program which focuses on participation, lifesaving skills and important lessons in beach and surf awareness, while for the older kids, the cadet program embraces lifesaving and surf sports while also providing opportunities for youth development.

The open day will include lots of activities and displays, which will offer information on finding out how to join the club, how to identify a rip and general beach safety, while there will also be music on the sundeck from midday to 3pm.

Registrations to join the lifesaving community for the 2018-19 season will be open for new and existing members and nippers.

The open day is on Sunday from 9am to 2pm at the Secret Harbour Surf Life Saving Club at 11 Palermo Cove, Secret Harbour.
