Member Protection

Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people in Surf Life Saving. One way we do this is by ensuring that our members behave in a way which creates a safe, positive and inclusive environment. Surf Life Saving’s Codes of Conduct represent the minimum standards of member behaviour and must be complied with at all times. There are two Codes of Conduct, both of which can be found in the SLSA Member Protection Policy.

  • The General Code of Conduct: includes expectations relating to respect; ethics; professionalism;
    complying with SLSA rules, policies and procedures; reporting breaches of the Safeguarding
    Program; and being a positive role model.
  • The Code of Conduct for People in Positions of Authority when Dealing with Children or Young
    People: includes expectations relating to positive guidance; overnight stays; language; adhering
    to role boundaries; transporting children; use of electronic communication; use of changing
    rooms; use of photography; physical contact; gift giving; wearing of uniforms; and use of alcohol
    or drugs.

Members are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the Codes of Conduct, and to ensure that their behaviour, as well as the behaviour of others within the Club, is appropriate. They areencouraged to say something if they see something that doesn’t feel right, or is not in line with the Codes of Conduct.
