We’re About Community and For a Movement

Surf Lifesaving and Surf Sports is undoubtedly seen as being quintessentially Australian.
With the summer sun beating down during the season, many flock to the beaches around Australia, to cool off, relax, and spend time with family or friends, and with so many at the beach, it’s necessary that there remains a community that ensures the safety of the ocean’s patrons.

In Australia there are over 313 Surf Lifesaving clubs, with 169,000 members, providing services of safety to the broader community, whilst also serving its members with opportunities in sport, education, and social engagement.
It’s not all Bondi Rescue, or Nutri-grain iron series that you’d see around the clubs, in fact, there’s way more to the movement of Surf lifesaving that many from the outside wouldn’t see.

Within Trigg Island SLSC, we have aligned ourselves with the following values:
1) One Club, One team
2) Excellence with Humility
3) Inclusivity
4) Fun
5) Respectful
These values ensure that together we serve the community and the movement of Surf Lifesaving to the best of our abilities, with a key goal and mission in mind.

Recently, Trigg Island SLSC, demonstrated an act that encapsulated all 5 values whilst looking beyond just our own club, but helping another.
Scarborough – Wombarra SLSC, a club within New South Wales that has a small number of patrolling members, hosted their inaugural patrol relay. This event was a competitive opportunity for the club’s members to come together and compete in the spirit of sport, with the age groups ranging from 16 through to over 60.
To celebrate the success and movement of SLS in Australia, Scarborough-Wombarra SLSC wanted to represent the many clubs within this event, promoting inclusion, and that ultimately, whilst we all compete within our clubs, we are all a team in the same community. Trigg Island SLSC, were lucky to be one of the clubs represented, with our organization sending over caps for their members to wear during the intra-club competition.

We are beyond thankful that our club was represented in such an opportunity, and we hope that as time goes on Scarborough – Wombarra and it’s competition continues to grow, with more clubs being represented as the years go on.

Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club acknowledges the traditional owners, the Whadjuk People of the Noongar Nation, of the beach on which we work and play. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and are grateful for their continuing connection to the land, sea and sky.
