Memberships

Is there a membership available for me at Denmark?

Yes! Denmark offers a range of membership categories for you to join.

Club fees, which we have deliberately kept low, are required to keep our Club functioning and to cover such things as insurance, administration, equipment purchase and maintenance, running costs, building maintenance, Association Registration and Affiliation.

In return for the low fees we do ask our members to assist in some fundraising during the season and the expectation is for every family to do at least one shift in the kiosk over summer. This is not onerous and should only be a few hours of your time, so please lend a hand to help spread the load. The Government does not directly inject funds into Surf Lifesaving Clubs and as a result fees and fundraising are required to meet all our ongoing costs.

Social notes

Social events are organised throughout the season and promoted in our newsletters and with flyers and notes around the club. These events are open to every-one including members, parents of Juniors and anyone interested in our activities. Keep your eyes and ears open for these events because we would love to see you there.

Can I bring friends to the club?

Family and friends are welcome to come down to the Club for social functions. However, only current financial members of the Club are allowed to use club equipment and the club facilities such as the showers, change rooms and ‘board’ room.
