The Bigger Picture

Frankston Life Saving Club (FLSC) is part of the much larger Kingston Area and we share the load with our fellow clubs in the Area.

Ranging from Moorabbin down to Carrum, the City of Kingston is a local government area in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne in Victoria. Its northern boundary lying approximately 15 km from the Melbourne city centre along the north-eastern shorelines of Port Phillip. It covers an area of 91 km² and has an estimated population of 134,626 people.

The clubs of Seaford LSC and Frankston LSC were assigned to Kingston Area in 2016 and it has been a time of change and challenges for the clubs. Overall, a positive time of growth for everyone.

Our Area Training Officer is Ms Catherine Paulsen, who can be reached via the Carrum Life Saving Club.

As a consequence of this change Frankston LSC is able to share its resources and training load with other clubs in our area.

In addition Life Saving Victoria runs a number of statewide training sessions, ensuring all members can maintain or develop skills, regardless of club size or people's availability.
