Club Overview

The South Brighton SLSC was formed in 1929 with the objective of patrolling the beach to ensure the safety of swimmers. Eighty years on we have grown into one of Canterbury's most successful sporting organisations. Boasting an exceptional patrol and competition record, the club has won over 200 National titles since its inception and has been Canterbury's top club for the last decade as well as winning New Zealand's top club award for five seasons in a row- a competitive record unmatched by any other New Zealand club. Our active members still maintain voluntary patrols at the South Brighton beach during the summer season with safety of the swimmers our number one priority. We have over 200 active and social members ranging in age from five years right through to those in their late eighties.
