Joining, renewing, transferring and fees

If you would like to become a member of Freshwater SLSC or want to renew your existing membership, transfer from another club or for information on Junior Activity and General Membership and Membership fees, there are a number of options for you to consider, please read below.

New Members

All new members – i.e. those who are not already a member of another surf club and or do not hold any SLSA awards who wish to join as a cadet or active member, need to contact the Chief Instructor to obtain a membership application package which will include not only the application form but a variety of other documents relating to your anticipated training.

New members wishing to join as associate members can complete and lodge a membership form subject to meeting the relevant criteria.

Renewal of Membership

Membership renewal is open from 1 July 2021  While Covid-19 is with us we are asking that before club access is given we are requesting that membership renewal be done.  FOB access to the club will be denied until fees are paid.


Only financial members are covered by SLSNSW Insurance and iCare (formerly WorkCover) and are entitled to member benefits.

Renew your membership

Transfers from other clubs

Members transferring from other surf clubs need to complete a membership form and pay the relevant membership fee. When the form is received, action is then taken to instigate the transfer process from the other club.

Existing membership categories held at other clubs will be recognised by our club – e.g. if you are already a long service member at another club, you will also be considered a long service member of our club

If a transferring member wishes to apply for reserve active or long service membership of our club when they are not in that category at their existing club, they will need to provide written proof from their existing club that their patrol record meets the relevant criteria for active reserve or long service membership.
