The priority of Sandringham Life Saving Club is to provide a 'between the flags' lifesaving service to the public using the Sandringham beach.

Sandringham Life Saving Club will be patrolling the Sandringham beach every Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday over the 2017/2018 lifesaving season (Saturday 11th November 2016 until Sunday 15th April 2017)

Most of Australia's population lives close to the coastline and the beach has long occupied a special place in the Australian identity.

Every day thousands of people flock to Australia’s coastline to swim, surf, unwind and have fun. But the ocean is a powerful natural force and beach conditions can change dramatically.

Every year, almost 100 people drown at our beaches. The truth is that even though our surf lifesavers and lifeguards are trained professionals and are constantly vigilant in protecting the safety of beachgoers, swimming outside the red and yellow flags makes their job tougher.

Simply put: if we can’t see you, we can’t save you. Be safe and always swim between the red and yellow flags.
