TWO Sorrento Surf Life Saving members are celebrating having achieved their Surf Rescue Certificate, which means they can now take part in beach patrols.

Glenn Whelan and Max Letizia are part of the Dolphin Program, which was created by members of the club who have family members with a disability.

“It provides an opportunity to join a group within the surf club with an emphasis on fun while maintaining strong club feelings and loyalty,” club administration manager Jess Bunford said.

“The club is an inclusive organisation and is committed to providing a safe environment for all who choose to participate in surf lifesaving activities.”

Coordinated and supervised by qualified Sorrento volunteers, the program includes swimming, fitness, board skills, life saving knowledge, beach activities, surf awareness, teamwork and community education.

Sessions run on Saturdays from 10am to 11.30am.
