History

Stockton Surf life Saving Club is the second oldest surf life saving club in the Hunter Branch, forming five days after Newcastle SLSC on 15 January 1908. However life saving activities were in full swing in Stockton in the early 1860's. The "Stockton Rocket Brigade" were a group of men devoted to the rescue of seafarers who became shipwrecked trying to enter Newcastle Harbour. Historical records show that the men who crewed the Rocket Brigade rescue boats were the same men that later formed the Stockton SLSC.
