Development Clinic a Success!

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The City of Joon­dalup pro­vid­ed a grant to be utilised by Sor­ren­to and Mul­laloo Surf Clubs to aid in the devel­op­ment of ath­letes and coach­es.

Andrew Rid­ley utilised part of the grant to run pool res­cue clin­ics lead­ing up to Inter­states and also flew to Ade­laide to fur­ther devel­op his coach­ing skills in this area. He will pass on what he has learned to ath­letes and coach­es in this dis­ci­pline.

The remain­der of the mon­ey was used to fly Ironman/woman Tanyn Lyn­don and Devon Hal­li­gan over to Perth to run clin­ics for ath­letes, coach­es and age group man­agers from both surf clubs.

Devon and Tanyn were excep­tion­al and passed on so much enthu­si­asm, ener­gy and knowl­edge onto up and com­ing ath­letes and coach­es. We were extreme­ly for­tu­nate that the weath­er was amaz­ing and Mul­laloo turned on a wave over the week­end, which made train­ing even more excit­ing and assist­ed in the acqui­si­tion of numer­ous skills.

A board ses­sion was held for U14 — Open ath­letes and coach­es on Fri­day evening, fol­lowed by a talk to age group man­agers and coach­es.

Sat­ur­day began with a junior skills ses­sion u11 — u13, fol­lowed by a BBQ lunch at Sor­ren­to. In the after­noon a skills ses­sion for U14 — open was held at Mul­laloo, Devon and Tanyn began this ses­sion with a stretch­ing and rolling demon­stra­tion, which was of great val­ue to ath­letes and coach­es.

Sat­ur­day evening saw a din­ner for ath­letes who had attend­ed 2016 Aussies, they had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to talk to Tanyn and Devon.

Sun­day start­ed at 7.30 am with an u14 — open iron­man ses­sion, fol­lowed by a junior iron­man ses­sion at Mul­laloo. PHEW !!!! Devon and Tanyn then flew to the air­port and back to the Gold Coast to resume their own busy train­ing and work/ Uni sched­ules.

The clin­ics were excep­tion­al and so much was learned by ath­letes, coach­es and age group man­agers, which is excit­ing giv­en that the sea­son is about to begin!

Huge thanks to the City of Joon­dalup for enabling this amaz­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to go ahead!

Congrats SRC Group 1!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the club’s newest life­savers – a group of 26 young mem­bers were assessed at Mul­laloo on Sat­ur­day 16 Sep­tem­ber, for their Surf Res­cue Cer­tifi­cate, which now makes them eli­gi­ble to join the club’s patrolling mem­bers and also to pur­sue fur­ther awards.

The group were trained to a high stan­dard by Simon Gid­ley (Lead Train­er) and his team which includ­ed Mark Hills, Car­lo and Tracey Tenaglia and Alis­tair Cook. Thanks also to the reg­u­lar water safe­ty mem­bers Anni­ka, Corey and India-Rose.

Skills Maintenance

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

requalDates for the diary

Here they are – with a new “look”. It has been decid­ed to split the requal­i­fi­ca­tion pro­gram between Dry and Wet skills – due to the large num­bers we have. It will be impor­tant to reg­is­ter for your pre­ferred ses­sion – so we can make sure we have suf­fi­cient Asses­sors (and Train­ers) to ensure an effi­cient ses­sion. There is also a mix of week­day evenings (Dry ses­sions) and week­ends (Wet ses­sions).

Mem­bers who are unable to attend with­in the dates list­ed due to work or trav­el com­mit­ments are request­ed to advise the Edu­ca­tion team with­out delay – so alter­na­tive arrange­ments can be worked out.

Skills Main­te­nance areas to be cov­ered at the ses­sions list­ed below will be Bronze Medal­lion, Surf Res­cue Cer­tifi­cate and Advanced Resus­ci­ta­tion Tech­niques. Each ses­sion will com­mence with an overview of changes, with an oppor­tu­ni­ty to prac­tice, before par­tic­i­pat­ing in a series of sce­nar­ios – sim­i­lar to last year.

  • DRY: Mon­day 9 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sun­day 15 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • DRY: Wednes­day 18 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sat­ur­day 21 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • DRY: Wednes­day 25 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sat­ur­day 4 Novem­ber, 8am to 12pm

IRB Skills Main­te­nance will be pro­vid­ed as a sep­a­rate pro­gram, due to the increased require­ment to demon­strate nego­ti­at­ing surf five times.

  • Sun­day 8 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • Sat­ur­day 14 Octo­ber, 8am to 11am
  • Sun­day 5 Novem­ber, 1pm to 4pm

The plan has been designed to avoid the busy peri­od of late Novem­ber and Decem­ber – as mem­bers are busy fin­ish­ing their work/school year, and also get­ting ready for the Christ­mas sea­son.
