Community Benefit Arrangements

Community Benefit Arrangements resulting in on-going fundraising

Sawtell SLSC is fortunate that there are groups prepared to use the services of the Club in various ways and are prepared to give a donation for the services provided.



For almost 20 years, Manly Nippers have held a spring training camp at Sawtell. The club appreciate the warm welcome that Sawtell SLSC extends to our families. Manly LSC thanks Sawtell SLSC and the local community for allowing us to train in this beautiful environment.



The invigorating sport of dragon boat paddling originated in China
thousands of years ago and, despite its ancient beginnings today dragon
boat paddling is a very modern sport and the world’s fastest growing
watersport enjoyed by men and women of all ages.
Dragon boating is not just for women or the super fit. The Club has men’s
and women’s teams plus a breast cancer survivors’ team and there is no
specific fitness level or age restriction except that paddlers must be over
12 years.
The Coffs Coast Dragon Boat Club has five training sessions per week at
Bonville Waters, Sawtell on Monday and Wednesday evenings and every
Saturday morning on the Bellinger River at Mylestom. New members are
always welcome.
Team spirit, exhilarating and intense exercise, mate ship plus the thrill of
being on the water are just some of the benefits of dragon boating.

TAS is a co-educational independent boarding and day school on the New England tablelands who has for many years offered students the opportunity to attain their Surf Bronze Medallion through a partnership with  Sawtell Surf Life Saving Club.   TAS students spend several days through the year at Sawtell SLSC learning surf swimming and rescue techniques, culminating in an  intensive week of training and assessment in November.   TAS is grateful for the passion Sawtell SLSC instructors share with our students, for the hospitality in having us to stay, and is proud to reciprocate with practical assistance as a way of saying ‘thank you’.

Many thanks to these organisations who consider Sawtell SLSC a reliable provider of services and in return are prepared to make a donation.


Sawtell SLSC is also fortunate that there are many local businesses prepared to assist our Club in other ways.    This support is greatly appreciated and we encourage our members to actively support them.



McGrath will donate $500 to the Club for any member who lists their residence for sale through their agency and the residence is sold by McGrath. Please nominate our Club.





We’ve proudly supported surf life saving for over 30 years. We support surf life saving from the Central Coast to the Queensland border, assisting surf life saving branches and clubs to purchase essential safety equipment, perform volunteer patrols and provide training and leadership programs to nurture our surf life savers of tomorrow.

With a focus on junior surf life saving, we’re helping sustain the future of surf life saving in our community. It is our hope that junior life savers will realise their full potential not just as athletes, but as confident, motivated and passionate individuals and future leaders within our community.

Rebel Sports offer an amazingly generous benefit when our members (or anyone in the community) sign up for their kickbacks scheme.  The Club accumulates a tally of credit points that converts to cash that the Club can redeem in kind in the store – which means we can get free equipment, or purchase big ticket items such as go pros, fit bitz etc for raffling.  The Club has already redeemed thousands of dollars of value from this scheme – buying boards, game equipment and items for raffling.  Signing up is beneficial to  members as well. It gives access to our diverse Member Offers, and our range of in-store services including the lifetime mechanical tuning of our bicycles! The 30 seconds of your time taken to sign up benefits everyone.  Link to Rebel Sports Coffs Harbour
