On the south side of Moruya Heads, our beautiful beach sweeps to the south for 2.5km to a sand spit at Pedro Point. Established in 1932, the Moruya Surf Life Saving Club has a long and proud history. The Club is located at Moruya Beach in Charles Moffit Drive, Moruya Heads and our patrol season commences with the September/October school holidays through to late in April around Anzac Day.
When you see red and yellow flags on a beach, it indicates that there is currently a lifesaving service operating on that beach. The lifeguards have chosen a section of the beach that is best for swimming and they will closely supervise this area. Lifeguards pay more attention to the area between the red and yellow flags than any other part of the beach.
PLEASE always swim between the flags
Moruya Surf Life Saving Club runs an active Nipper’s program for children aged 5 to 14 years (inclusive).
At Moruya our focus is on educating and encouraging our nippers to gain confidence, respect and enjoyment for the beach environment. Skills are taught, practiced and assessed according to the age and ability of your child’s allocated group.
Children learn best when they are having fun, so while they are learning potentially ‘lifesaving’ skills they are also enjoying the teamwork and fun activities led by their age manager/s. Nippers is usually held at Dolphin Beach – our surf club beach. However, depending on conditions we may head over to Shelley Beach or on the river at North Heads.
As long as your child has turned 5, they can participate in water confidence, beach activities and occasionally joining in with the older kids to run relays and practice the ‘march past’, a traditional part of Surf Life Saving.
Club competition commences with the Under 8’s age group. This enables your child to participate in Far South Coast Branch carnivals - from Batemans Bay to Pambula. There are three carnivals throughout the season. They are not compulsory but are lots of fun.
