Masters State Championships – are to be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th March at Christies Beach.
Nominations for those wishing to compete are now open. At this stage a master list of competitors is to be submitted in order for verification checks to be completed.
Competitors will then be able to enter as many or as few events on each of the two days as they wish. A full program of events will be released shortly.
If you would like to compete at this event please email Kerry Schulz at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Wed 25th February.
Clint Robinson – on Friday 20th February the club has managed to secure and fully fund a 2hr training session for all Seniors with Clint Robinson.
Clint is an Olympic gold medalist, multiple world champion and 38x Australian Lifesaving gold medalist.
This session will provide our Seniors with invaluable skills that they will be able to take into State Titles and hopefully utilise for many years to come.
We invite all our Seniors (U14s with SRC included) – no matter the skill level, out to train. Clint will be able to help everyone in some way. We also invite nipper coaches and all others that are interested to come down and observe the session as you will no doubt pick up some valuable skills that you will be able to pass on to our nippers.
The session will run from 5-7pm (5-6pm boards and 6-7pm skis).
Club Champs – were held on Saturday 14th February. This was our inaugural ‘Whole Club’ Club Champs that saw Juniors, Seniors and Masters all compete on the same day. The day was very well-received and we hope to continue hosting Club Champs this way in future seasons.
A big thanks to all those that assisted with the smooth running of all events on the day ensuring we were off the beach before the heat of the sun fully took hold.
The evening festivities with wood oven pizzas (provided free of charge) and the jukebox ensured the day finished as it started – with everyone smiling. Thanks to Carmel Kenny who decorated the club in a Valentine’s Day theme to make sure we all acknowledged the importance of the day!!
We had 38 Senior and Masters who competed in one or more of the 6 events – a great turn-out!
