Located in the heart of downtown Yeppoon, the Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club can be found on the forefront of the Main Beach. Established in 1926, YSLSC promotes its motto of Videre et Facere “To See is to Do”.
YSLSC prides itself in competing at state and national competitions in all levels of surf competition including beach and water events, boat rowing, champion lifesaver and patrol competitions. However, the main focus of the club is keeping the beach safe for the public and junior members.
Known for its safe environment the Yeppoon’s Main Beach is enjoyed by many locals and visitors to the Capricorn Coast. The popular beach is patrolled by Yeppoon SLSC volunteer lifesavers on weekends and public holidays from mid-September to May, with full time lifeguards patrolling during school holidays.
Well known as a family club, Yeppoon SLSC boasts having generations of families participating in and filling different roles within the club, including nippers, patrolling members and life members.
Supported by a healthy membership Yeppoon SLSC also enjoys strong camaraderie between all active members including our highly experienced and fit Masters through to our Green Caps, the youngest group in our nippers training program.
The well coordinated nippers program incorporates both team and personal development and provides opportunity for children to compete at various levels. The program is conducted during the Surf Lifesaving patrolling season and is held each Sunday morning commencing at 9 am.
Senior members enjoy regular handicap events which are also held on Sundays
Recent improvements to our Clubhouse have seen a new deck constructed to the eastern aspect of the existing building. This is proving very popular with both club members and the public. A Friday afternoon with a cool drink in hand enjoying the views over our shore – what a great way to unwind after a busy week. Come and join us from 4pm onward.
