Associate membership is a category of membership available to prospective members aged 35 and over. It has no lifesaving obligations attached to it and is generally priced higher to reflect this. Benefits include free hot showers and sauna, lockers, concessional parking, reduced hire rates on the club room, and invitations to club social events. If you are under 35 you must complete the Certificate 2 in Public Safety (Bronze Medallion). This is an association and club rule.
