Cudgen Headland Surf life saving club @ Kingscliff

Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club volunteer lifesavers patrol Kingscliff Beach between October and April on weekends and for NSW and Qld public holidays.  Our beach is patrolled by professional lifeguards during the NSW and Qld summer and winter school holidays. The Surf Club charter is to provide aquatic safety for Kingscliff Beach which allows families to enjoy their holidays and leisure time in safety.  Volunteers have been patrolling Kingscliff Beach since 1922

The Club is located at the southern end of Kingscliff Beach adjacent to the restaurant strip and business centre. It is close to many accommodation facilities and only a short drive from the Gold Coast Airport.

TRAINING & EDUCATION

Successful lifesaving is accomplished through volunteer lifesavers having specific, relevant and up to date training and education.  Lifesavers apply their knowledge and skills to provide the beach going public with a service of prevention, promotion and protection.

The training and education area provides introductory, standard and higher level training in the use of lifesaving equipment and advanced emergency care resources that enhances the lifesavers ability to provide support to the community, while maintaining and developing their own skills.

The trainers and assessors are lifesavers who have identified the importance of a well trained organisation and further dedicate their time, to provide ongoing access to training and education of new and existing members.

Many of the courses delivered are nationally accredited which provides opportunities for the knowledge and skills gained through lifesaving to be used for gaining or maintaining employment outside of the lifesaving movement.
