My Beach

It was a petition from community members in 2001 that saw the humble beginnings of Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club; a Club who this year took out the Lavan Club of the Year title for their incredible work and vision for the future of surf lifesaving.


Coogee Beach have worked hard to ensure the club continuously strives to adapt, improve, and achieve the goals they set, with all members of the Club reaping the benefits.

Talking with Coogee Beach SLSC President Nick Neal, there is clearly one concept that is central to Coogee Beach SLSC, and that is FAMILY!
