About our club
Dromana Bay Life Saving Club was founded on June 16th 1997 by a small but dedicated group of volunteers who saw a need for a Life Saving Club in the Dromana community.
Since then the club has enjoyed a steady growth of membership to become a dedicated and successful Life Saving Club. The club has trained many members to become patrol members with lifesaving skills and techniques. The club has also introduced water awareness and survival skills when in Port Phillip Bay to hundreds of school aged children.
One of the reasons for Dromana Bay Life Saving Club’s success is that it welcomes people of all abilities and ages, from all walks of life, and encourages them to grow as an active member of the club. It is these members that contribute to the welcoming and ‘have a go’ attitude that exists throughout the Surf Life Saving Australia organisation.
The clubs priority is to maintain a high level of patrols on the beach. We provide water safety, first aid and answer queries from the members of the public. Our Nippers program continues to grow and reflects the swell in numbers of children enjoying water safety activities on beaches all around Australia.
