Silver Salties

Sandringham Life Saving Club are thrilled to host the Silver Salties program.  

Silver Salties is a physical activity and social connections initiative for older Australians designed by Surf Life Saving Australia and supported by Sport Australia’s Move It Aus – Better Ageing Program.  Silver Salties is designed for older Australians, however people of all ages can participate.

We offer weekly classes in yoga, tai chi, fitness, and pilates, with an open-water swimming program also offered during the warmer months. Our trained instructors are skilled in adapting their classes for all abilities, body types, and fitness levels, and we are happy to accommodate participants who need additional support. We also recently won the Janet Jones OAM Inclusion Award at the LSV Awards of Excellence for our program!

We’d like to thank Bendigo Community Bank Sandringham, Bayside City Council and Surf Life Saving Australia for their funding to support this initiative that enables all of the community to enjoy the Sandringham Life Saving Club and our amazing beach and foreshore.

Please visit our ‘Classes’ page for more information and to register for classes. To see special events and courses that are planned for Silver Salties, please visit our ‘What’s on’ page.
