Williamstown Swimming & Life Saving Club
(18th-23rd December 2022)
WS&LSC are running a pre-Christmas Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) course again this year.
The SRC course provides participants with skills and knowledge of surf awareness, aquatic rescue operations and resuscitation in order to participate in lifesaving patrol operations and act in the role of Water Safety Personnel. Gaining your SRC and participating in beach patrols over the summer also means you can represent the club at beach and surf carnivals in the Under 14 age category.
If you have any questions about the course or have difficulty enrolling, please contact our Director of Training (Rebecca Cameron) at firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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

We’re not just about life saving
Apart from ensuring Williamstown beach is safe over summer, the club actively hosts a range of activities, with some of our major ones listed below:
Monthly social events
One of the core aspects of the club is it’s ability to bring people together in the community. As a club, we understand the importance of this, so we put on a social event each month, ranging from social drinks to group fitness activities.
The club has partnered with local fitness trainers to provide members with discount personal training classes hosted at the life saving club.
