Programme Overview

The aim of the Waihi Beach Lifeguard Service is to achieve excellence in beach rescue services and surf sports by continually developing the skills of our members and by promoting the role of the club in the community. If you would like to become a lifeguard visit our website to download the information and enrolment forms. Become a member of Waihi Beach Lifeguard Services Inc - there are a number of different membership types available: Active Membership, Associate Membership, Associate Membership, Social Membership. Please check our website to see which one will suit you. Over the busy summer period we provide many activities for the community to get involved in. In the fourth and first school terms Lifeguards run Beach Education classes for school children, teaching them about safety in the surf and sun. On New Years Day we have the annual children beach sports day; the longest running beach sports day in New Zealand attracting hundreds of locals and tourists for some family fun. We also run an annual fun run/walk, sandcastle competition and other fun events. All of these events help to promote our service and are a fun way for the community to get involved and help our club with the funding we rely on for our existence.
