SLSA Operations App - Aug 2019

You may have used the 'SLSA Operations App' last season, a one stop shop for managing your patrol in real-time. The app is available on iOS/Apple, Android devices & Web. The app allows clubs, lifeguards and support services to manage their real-time operations and record patrol hour attendance and statistics electronically. The data is then directly added into Surfguard without the need for any paper logs.

You can find the user guide in the right hand menu or simply click here. A video walkthrough of the SLSA Operations app can be seen on the right or found here


With over 20 major applications and systems, the SLSA IT Helpdesk is in place to deliver quality and consistent support to all clubs, volunteers, officials and other SLS entities.
