WHO WE ARE

WE ARE LIFE SAVING CHAPLAINCY AUSTRALIA

Our Chaplaincy, founded by Terry Legg in 1995, aims to serve all life savers in Australia and is unique in the world: Surf Life Saving Australia was the first sports governing body to endorse Chaplaincy at the 1998 Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, by the then SLSA President, Alan Whelpton AO. Endorsement

By doing so it created a model that is today enjoyed by a large number of sporting organizations across the nation from Australian Football League to the Australian Institute of Sport and including sports such as racing, rugby league, basketball, horse racing, cricket and tennis.

Life Saving Chaplaincy Australia operates in association with Sports Chaplaincy Australia (SCA) as a Major Umbrella Sports Committee. We have a National Operations Board Charter and we are authorized by lifesaving bodies to provide chaplaincy to life saving clubs

The Life Saving Chaplaincy Australia National Operations Board was formed at the beginning of 2011 with its inaugural meeting taking place on Friday 8th April 2011.

The board consisted of 6 founding members: (pictured below)
