Established in 2017 at Jackson's Bay beach on Wales' South coast, Vale Surf Lifesaving Club strives to teach valuable life skills to people of all ages. Starting from 7 years of age and onwards, our members are continuously learning the importance of sea and beach safety, and learning basic first aid and CPR skills and are also taking part in various fitness sessions to ensure they are always prepared for saving lives! So many of our members have gained awards and qualifications through surf lifesaving, such as Beach Lifesaver Level 1-3 onwards and National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualifications, adding these to their CVs to demonstrate their extensive learning. Some members have also had the opportunity to use these wards to either volunteer with or be employed by the RNLI.
As well as training the lifesavers of the future, Vale SLSC thrives on competition, allowing for our members to mix with other lifesaving clubs and to put all of the relevant lifesaving skills into practice! Boards, surf skis, swimming and running, there are plenty of elements to keep the sport exciting and engaging. If you are wanting to really engage with surf lifesaving sport, there are various levels of competitions ranging from local carnivals, to national and international competitions. By joining our team, you will be able to access trials for the Welsh and Great British Surf lifesaving team for the youth and senior age groups!
The Vale Lifesaving Club is a family orientated, fun and friendly group of people with a shared loved for the sea.
