State Operations

The Australian Lifeguard Service (National) takes on the umbrella role of aligning the state centres, however, nationally we do not operate any lifeguard services. The states are the operational arms of the ALS and provide the day to day running of services within their state.

ALS (State) Roles

  • Operate lifeguard services
  • Deliver training and education
  • Recruitment, employment and conditions
  • State based marketing and selling of products and services
  • State regulations

Although the ALS aligns as many operational systems, policies and programs nationally as possible, each state still has the ability to operate some of these specific to their state. In some cases the size of the state or state regulations dictate this.

Full contact information for all surf clubs, branches, regions and states are also listed in the SLSA Club Directory which is located here.
