The new Surf Life Saving season is nearly upon us and, as summer approaches, we would like to invite you to renew your membership with Sandridge Life Saving Club.
This is particularly important for any member looking to ‘requal’ this year at Sandridge LSC, as you must be a financial member of a club in order to undertake requalification.
How to Join/Renew Membership
Membership renewals and payments are now due, renewals are now exclusively online.
If you do not have online access, please contact [email protected].
SLSA Members Portal
Introduced last year, renewals will again be using Surf Life Saving Australia’s (SLSA) Members Portal. The Portal is a one-stop-shop for member information.
The Members Portal encompasses a number of key features including:
- Lifesaving Online – submit membership renewals, update your personal details and make payments
- The ability to view your awards, patrol hours and request and accept patrol substitutions
- Keep up to date with the latest news, events and information from LSV and SLSA
- A resource library containing LSV & SLSA SOP’s, policies, forms, circulars and other important and useful documents
- The ability to make applications for recognition of awards
Membership applications and renewals can be made online, through facilities provided via the new Surf Life Saving Australia SLSA Members Portal: portal.sls.com.au
Membership Renewals: For those of you who registered last year with Life Saving Online, you will need to create a new Members Portal Account and follow the prompts to renew your membership and pay.
A membership renewal document has been created to help guide you through this new process.
New Members: You will need to ‘join’ the club before you can create your members portal account. You can join by following the prompts here: https://join.sls.com.au/
A comprehensive guide, for renewing online, is available here:
Membership Guide 2017-18 (pdf 650KB)
This guide provides detailed information on all aspects of the online process for membership renewal.
Family Membership – Please Note
The online system requires an account for each family member.
However, if you are renewing more than one family member you can now group family members, via the members portal, to save time. Please refer to the guidelines for information on how to do this.
If you are a new member you will need to join for each member of your family.
The family membership fee can be paid by any member, however, all members within the family still need to login and complete the renewal process individually. Please also list each members name in the payment details.
Please renew/apply for membership and then complete the nipper registration form to enrol for nippers.

Working with Children Check
Please remember that the Working With Children Check (WWCC), is mandatory for all active members aged 18 years and over, and any member involved in club programs/activities that include our under 18 members e.g. nipper leaders/helpers etc.
The club is unable to accept any membership renewals if the member does not have a WWCC registration number (or receipt). This is a LSV requirement, not a club initiative.
You can apply for a check online here.
Unfortunately, other levels of police checks are not accepted. The ‘Working With Children Act 2005’ and the Life Saving Victoria policy (LSV Policy AD6-05) are documented on the State Government and LSV websites if you would like further information.
For more information, please see our Working with Children Check page.
Updating an existing WWCC
If you already have a Working With Children Check, you will need to ensure Sandridge LSC is listed in your details.
You can do this online here.
Go to ‘Cardholders’ and ‘Update My Details’ (if you haven’t already set up an online login you will need to do so). In ‘change my details’ you can add ‘Organisation Details’ and ‘Occupational Work Codes’
Members are allowed access and use of the club house and its facilities (e.g. toilets and showers). It does not include storage of equipment (e.g. for skis, surf boards and paddles).Due to the lack of space, storage is reserved for and prioritised as follows:
- Sandridge Life Saving Club property and then
- Active patrolling members, with the express permission of the Director of Facilities
- If any space is still available, other membership categories may apply to the director of facilities for permission for temporary storage.
Any temporary storage that is allowed to any financial member (active or otherwise) is done so at the discretion of the Sandridge Life Saving Club Facilities Director, who reserves the right to remove this privilege at any time without explanation.
Sandridge Life Saving Club also reserves the right to remove any property from its club house or club grounds without permission or notification. Sandridge Life Saving Club does not take responsibility for any non-club or personal equipment stored on the premises.
We look forward to seeing you on the beach.
