Unfortunately, at this time, Aberystwyth Surf Life Saving Club is unable to accept any new members. For safety purposes and insurance we need to ensure we have enough lifeguards to supervise all of our members. If you would like to join the club waiting list or are interested in knowing more then please e-mail your queries and details to [email protected].
Membership is open to everyone over the age of 7, the only requirement is that you are able to pass our swimming competency assessment which involves being able to demonstrate the skills set out in the ASA Learn to Swim Level 7 Award. Membership is restricted to 7 year olds because our insurance does not cover children younger than this. The cost of membership is £55.00 for the year which allows you access to equipment and facilities (subject to appropriate qualifications and supervision) as well as the knowledge and skill of our coaches and trainers.
Membership for the 2017/18 season requires that all members are aged 7 or over from the 31/12/2016.
You will need a good wetsuit and, as a policy, all Nippers are required to wear wetsuit boots (boots and gloves are recommended for cooler weather for all members). It is compulsory for all members to wear a club rash vest during training for safety and promotion of the club. These can be purchased from the club for £10. It is essential that all members arrive at training in warm clothing with their wetsuit, swimmers, suncream and a towel with them. If there is ever the need to exit the water early, you will want warm clothes to change into.
No. All that is required is that you are able to pass our swimming competency assessment which involves being able to demonstrate the skills set out in the ASA Learn to Swim Level 7 Award.
Yes please! The more adults that get involved the better! Plus, there are opportunities for adults to become qualified helpers both on the beach and in the water.
