Our core values!
Surf Life Saving Australia is a community cause committed to reducing coastal drowning by 50% by 2020. Everyday our lifesavers rescue 35 people and they conduct 143 preventative actions every hour. Aldinga Bay Surf Lifesaving Club is affiliated with Surf Life Saving Australia and its State branch here in South Australia and so follows its motto of "Vigilance and Service".
Surf Lifesaving in Australia turned 100 years old a couple of years ago and its influence has spread around the world.
In 2017-18 year Aldinga Bay SLSC’s contribution to the community was huge!
The snapshot of statistics shows that our club continued to be effective; essential to the community in providing safety on our local beaches. Translated to $ amount our efforts contributed more than $2.5 million to the community.
We grew in youth membership which will increase our effectiveness and ensure continuance moving forward.
Statistics show that Surf Lifesavers are valuable assets to the community. As our population grows so does the need for Surf Life Savers.
ALDINGA BAY SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB DEVASTATED BY STORM DAMAGE
On Friday 9 July at around 11:00pm the ABSLSC rooms, restaurant and kiosk was devastated by a storm that has been described as a ‘mini tornado’ with a large part of the roof and pergola being ripped off. The building has now been demolished with the rebuild being set to commence in early 2020.
The restaurant and kiosk was a large part of the club's financial means and with that gone there will be significant out of pocket expenses for the Club as a not for profit organisation that is run by volunteers. The Club has therefore reached out to the community for donations through a gofundme site with a goal of raising $25,000.
In the 2018 season Aldinga Bay SLSC members operated without club rooms and with the completion of the new Operations Centre that was planned around 4-5 years ago things are looking better for 2019.
Plans to rebuild the kiosk and restaurant are scheduled for commencement early in 2020.
