Sandringham Life Saving Club are thrilled to have launched 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.

Life Saving Clubs can choose to deliver one or more of the 20 Silver Salties programs on offer which include accessible, friendly, safe and fun activities at the clubhouse, beach, grassy foreshore and in the bay and caters for older Australians’ diversity in age, weight, mobility, fitness or experience. Silver Salties programs are tailored to suit local community interest, club capacity, setting and context.

 Activities on offer:

We are currently looking into running a water safety education program for people aged 55+. Would you be interested? Click here to find out more about our Open Water Grey Medallian Course and to register your interest

Classes are $15 each, with concession card holders $10 each, and are held at the Sandringham Life Saving Club. Swimming sessions meet on the beach just in front of the clubhouse. All attendees must pre-register in order to be covered by our insurance.

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.
