Welcome to the home of the St George Spearfishing & Freediving Club.
The St George Spearfishing and Freediving Club started back in 1956 and was one of the first spearfishing clubs in Australia. We always welcome new members and meet from 7pm on the 3rd Monday of every month at:
Royal Motor Yacht Club
228-232 Wooloware Rd, Burraneer NSW 2230
(some members have drinks/dinner earlier in the bistro from 6pm, all welcome)
Want to join the St George Spearfishing Club?
Meet other divers, join in on the social dives, attend club meetings to learn how to make/repair gear, participate in the competitions or just learn how to catch fish and much more.
Pay via the AUF website (Australian underwater Federation) & you will need to choose from the drop down menu ‘NSW Spearfishing’, then select 'St George Spearfishing Club'. Then you will need to choose Senior Or Junior (under 18yr). Do not choose Social as this does not cover you to dive with the club as you will have no insurance cover.
Once payment is received you will then need to go to the Closed St George spearfishing club facebook page answer the questions and put in a request to join the page.
Social Dives & Club Trips:
Diving with St George Spearfishing Club is not all about competition diving. Many of our club members have joined for the social dives held monthly up and down the coast.
Here you get to dive with club members and learn new techniques from others. When you become a club member you will be sent a SMS with all social dive info & gain exclusive access to our members only Facebook Page.
