In 2016 jet skis were recognised by SLSWA as being a standard item of patrol equipment and were made available for use by clubs in club patrol activities. Whilst not considered mandatory patrol equipment, they have now been introduced by the majority of clubs into patrol activities to extend services outside the flags and improve the resources available to patrol teams.

Members of the Wesfarmers Lifesaver Jet Ski Teams will typically be involved in providing patrol services at their club location and water safety services in association with club activities.

These teams are managed by each club, including responsibility for the service roster of each team member.

Does your club have Wesfarmers Lifesaver Jet Ski Team?

Participation by WA surf life saving clubs in the Wesfarmers Jet Ski Program is optional, meaning that your club may not currently have jet skis, however this does not prevent you from being involved. If your club has a jet ski team talk to your club Director of Lifesaving and register your interest in joining your club team.

If your club does not have a jet ski team, please contact the SLSWA Lifesaving Department who will assist you with alternate training and endorsement options in conjunction with teams outside of your club.
