Pool Lifeguards for Club Pool

Expressions of Interest for qualified Lifeguards for the club pool for this season are now being taken.
The club pool will be open for members and other activities from November to April. (exact dates to be confirmed). We require current accrediated lifeguards for regular weekday sessions (morning and after 4pm), school programs (9- 3) and weekends. We aim to provide regular pool openings this season but require lifeguards for this to occur.

These are paid roles and will also have an “on – call” component.

The club plans to hold a Pool Lifeguard Update in October (date tba) for any member who requires.
Please send an email reply with your details including your accreditation number and date by 20/9/22 to


New Clubrooms Granted

It’s been a big week for WS&LSC following the $11 million funding announcement by the Victorian Government for the redevelopment of our Club facilities. A huge thank you to our Member for Williamstown, Melissa Horne MP, who has done a power of work behind the scenes to secure the funds.

The funds are in addition to financial contributions committed by Hobsons Bay City Council who also paid for the preparation of preliminary plans which assisted the funding bid. Through that process, heritage advice was obtained which confirmed the tower and hall will be retained and upgraded as part of the project. A new indoor pool is also included which will enable the club to expand Learn-to-Swim programs (the reason the pool was built in the first place) as well as a training venue for Life Saving Victoria and yearround use of the pool for members
