Broadstairs Surf Life Saving Club (BSLSC) was founded in 2013 and is affiliated with the national organisation Surf Life Saving GB a charity of over 5,000 volunteers helping to make our beaches a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone. The club holds regular training sessions on Viking Bay and other beaches around Thanet. Pool sessions are also held particularly during the winter months.

The club is all about learning and maintaining lifesaving skills and enjoying regular land and water based training on Thanet’s beautiful beaches and in the sea around our coastline. We always welcome new members from experienced lifeguards to complete beginners and offer fitness and lifeguard skills training. We aim to provide quality lifeguard training in partnership with Surf Life Saving GB and also working closely with the RNLI Lifeguards. We also aim to provide both aquatic and first aid support to the local area.
The club’s mission statement has a number of goals which include:
• To offer club members the opportunity to keep fit through Life Saving Sport, increasing skill levels and equipping members to deal with emergency situations
• To offer enjoyable training and education to club members in surf lifesaving skills with links to nationally recognised awards and qualifications which can help lead to a occupation in lifeguarding.
