Coogee Beach is very popular and receives a large number of visitors all year round. The Club patrols the beach on the weekends and public holidays during the summer season, while the Randwick City Council Lifeguards patrol 365 days a year.
The Coogee Surf Club aims to keep the beach safe for visitors and to encourage physical and social activities for its members.
The Club is extremely proud of its record of no lives lost whilst Coogee SLSC members have been on Patrol.
The Club has over 1000 members with over 400 active volunteer lifesavers and also a large junior level (nipper) membership.
We always welcome new members. To find out more, vist the Join the Club page.
The Coogee Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1907 by a group of concerned locals who thought that the surf bathers needed protection from the dangers and the vagaries of the surf.
From humble beginnings where we operated out of a wooden shack, our first Clubhouse was built in 1910. All the members performed patrols on weekends until a roster system was eventually devised.
Coogee has always been at the forefront of Surf Life Saving. The first mass rescue, night surf carnival, shark attack and the development of the resuscitation technique all happened at Coogee. This has created a great sense of camaraderie and loyalty to the Club.
