Become a Member

In recent months the VLA has been connecting with our members to learn more about how we can enhance your relationship with us and with other lifeguards and members.  Throughout 2017 we will be piloting many new opportunities in our Happy Healthy Members benefits program.


Why become a member?

Being a member of the VLA means you are part of a  growing community which is passionate about water safety, fitness, and education.  Our new benefits program provides opportunities for lifeguards and non lifeguards to learn, keep fit, and meet great people.  Members are not required to volunteer, but we do encourage our members to learn more about our volunteer opportunites.

What’s offered?

-Promotions from our Happy Healthy Community Partners (Listed Below)

-Invitations to members-only social events as well as open events (taking place all year)

-Early bird registration for our speakers series events

-Discounts to signature social events

-You get a voice!  Attend our AGM and vote on important issues

Have an idea for our membership package?  Let us know!

As a member, do I have a say in what my membership looks like?

Absolutely!  We encourage our members to provide feedback about their journey with the VLA.  If you think we are missing something, let us know!  We are excited to provide you with a valuable member experience.

Is there a cost to being a member?

Currently, membership with the VLA is free.  With your feedback and the launch of the next phase of the Happy Healthy Members benefits package, we expect a modest annual fee to begin in 2018.
