You may not be a lifeguard—but you can guard a life.

Every hour, 42 people around the world lose their lives to drowning. They are sons, wives, teachers, toddlers. They are our families, our loves and our inspiration. And we lose them every single hour of every single day.

WELCOME TO LIFE SAVING CHAPLAINCY AUSTRALIA

Our Chaplains

Our Chaplains aim is to enrich the lives of Life Savers by demonstrating God’s mercy and grace to them. We achieve this by training dedicated men and women to provide pastoral care. Chaplains, like Life Savers, are volunteers and are required to be club members and complete a Level 2 Certificate in Sports Chaplaincy.
