Your club was formed in 1990 when a group of keen lifeguards saw the need to provide a permanent rescue base at Papamoa Domain. With support from the Tauranga City Council, Lions, Guides and Scouts the base was quickly established. Major extensions were completed in 2002 and now, with over 650 members, there is a plan in progress to extend yet again.
Our purpose is to prevent injury and drowning on Papamoa Beach. We do this by developing lifeguards. Our culture provides so much more than just this though. Our members contribute more to our community and do better in life than non-members. This is because of the other values and skills that our culture fosters – confidence, self- responsibility, pride, courage, humility, respect, community service, self -belief, motivation, leadership, disciplined thinking, relating to others and fun in a safe family environment.
Please make the most of the opportunities around you. Take unconditionally and give selflessly, in doing so the Spirit of Papamoa will get stronger and stronger.
