The ALSC patrols the beach between Mordialloc and Edithvale.
The clubs primary focus on a patrol day is ensuring the safety of the swimmer between the flags. Flags are usually set up in front of one of the ALSC Clubhouse.
ALSC runs a number of Bronze Medallion camps at the club throughout the season.
Members can train for a 'crew' award where they learn how to safely crew for the driver, undertake rescues and maintain a rescue boat. After 12 months with a crew award, members can train to become an IRB 'driver'.
