At Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club we are committed to involving our youth in a way that encourages and supports what it is they enjoy as well as opening up opportunities. We aim to offer opportunities to experience many different roles that are important in running a club and being involved in a volunteer organisation. We aim to deliver on this commitment and we will be sure to have a lot of fun along the way.
