Awesome turn out…

We had an awe­some turn out for our sea­son wind up at Joon­dalup Indoor Beach Vol­ley­ball Cen­tre…

Our up and com­ing Under 14’s joined our cur­rent youth age groups, with around 50 young club mem­bers bat­tling it out on the sand for the hon­ours.

After five rounds it was the PINK team who went through unde­feated, before all teams enjoy­ing some pizza together.

Thanks to our injured club mem­bers Annika, Lillyan and Darcey for their fan­tas­tic umpir­ing and con­trol of the games, and to all the par­ents who came along and sup­ported their kids.

The bar was manned by the Bul­ley Fam­ily and Josh Bull, later on Rob McGre­gor stepped in so the young ones could have some fun. Phil Dee was keep­ing the build­ing safe by mak­ing sure we didn’t have any unwanted guests. Sandy Clarke for mak­ing the fly­ers and her com­mu­ni­ca­tions in pro­mot­ing the night.

2018 SLSWA Youth Achiever Award Winner

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Ava BushbyThe Youth Achiever Award is a SLSWA award, given to one youth mem­ber (U14 or U15) from each club in WA.

We had four nom­i­nees this year, com­ing in from var­i­ous dif­fer­ent areas of the club includ­ing surf sports, life sav­ing and gen­eral club areas.

The award cri­te­ria include things such as:

ATTITUDE

  • Striv­ing to achieve to the best of your abil­ity
  • Team Spirit and cama­raderie
  • Self-moti­va­tion
  • Respect for oth­ers
  • Being a pos­i­tive role model for peers and younger mem­bers
  • Hav­ing a pos­i­tive atti­tude to club activ­i­ties

PARTICIPATION

  • Skills devel­op­ment
  • Surf life­sav­ing awards
  • Com­pe­ti­tion
  • Reg­u­lar atten­dance at club activ­i­ties

We con­grat­u­late all of the nom­i­nees – Har­riet Brown, Zara Mar­tin, India-Rose Shep­pard and Ava Bushby – and would like to announce that Ava Bushby is the recip­i­ent of this year’s award.

Ava is a very gen­uine, well man­nered young lady. Her reli­a­bil­ity has seen her pro­moted to Vice Cap­tain of her patrol at just 15. She par­tic­i­pated in R&R (where she also men­tors younger ath­letes), March Past, Pool Res­cue and Beach events and although not as con­fi­dent in her own abil­ity in water events, never hes­i­tates to step up and fill in or help out when needed, espe­cially in team events. She has just com­peted her IRB Crew award and imme­di­ately vol­un­teered for the Abalone patrol in this capac­ity.

St Patrick’s Day Fun

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

The Club came alive Fri­day night to great Irish music and culi­nary delights. The fact that the Guin­ness ran out part way through the evening would be a good indi­ca­tion that a good time was being had! It was a treat to watch the Irish danc­ing per­formed by the Keady Upton School  of Irish Danc­ing who are soon to head to Glas­gow to com­pete in their World Cham­pi­onships.

Big THANKS to The Socialites group for deck­ing the club out in Irish colours; to the chefs Janine Cronk, Cindy de Bom­ford and Dawn Jones; Jackie Mar­tin for putting together a great col­lec­tion of music from her library and Sandy Clarke for the video reel on the screens.

The dancers were fan­tas­tic, the video reel was great and the music Jackie Mar­tin put together was a real treat!

Check out some of the nights’ action below:

Well done to Phil Dee for his fundrais­ing on the night, on behalf of shave for a cure, leukemia foun­da­tion – the hair be gone now!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.

Well, we hope every­one has set­tled back in to Club hap­pen­ings after a busy few weeks over the Christ­mas and New Year period.

Below are a col­lec­tion of images from over the break.

Some of our mem­bers in action at the Christ­mas Eve Pad­dle – it was our biggest yet! Our Sat­ur­day morn­ing pad­dlers also had a splen­did day!

Big thanks to our vol­un­teer Christ­mas Day patrol mem­bers – the beach was busy!

We even man­aged to host an Open Water Swim event over the break on Sat­ur­day 30 Decem­ber! Thank you to all those who assisted with the water safety – this is a huge fundraiser for the Club. Whilst we com­pleted the task, we could have done with some extra sup­port from our mem­bers to provide rest rota­tion and broader cov­er­age at the event.

Our New Year’s Eve Party was also a hit, thanks to Dawn and the Socialite team along with sev­eral mem­bers who setup, ran and packed up for a 2 staged party. First up was the kids party – a great dance off and games were played, a good show of sup­port! This was fol­lowed up with our Black and White themed youth and up party – they Club looked great and was a buzz of activ­ity!

We have already had sev­eral car­ni­vals includ­ing the inau­gu­ral Lit­tle Nip­pers Car­ni­val, hit­ting it out in the surf at Sor­rento – life­savers and ironmen/women a plenty!! Be sure to check out both Tony Bow­ers and Andrew Mayberry’s pho­tos – there is action all round!

Dis­ap­point­ing num­bers at Abalone Patrol on Jan­u­ary 13 and lucky the weather was so oblig­ing! Let’s hope our bronzies can step up on the next one – Sat­ur­day 3 Feb­ru­ary!

Also, we hope to hear soon from our mem­bers that attended the SLSWA TOAD and Rise Up Camps!

Finally, we wish our Inter­state com­peti­tors Soraya Lee and Wes Gould good luck at the Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide, we hear it is a mild 40°C! Watch the action Live online!

Youth South West Camp a hit!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

The 2017 Youth South West Camp was an excit­ing adven­ture for all. This year the camp was opened to the Under 14’s as well and so we had 44 hik­ers in total. We arrived at the Surf Club at 6am ready for the jour­ney ahead.  Once we had reached the Mar­garet River Region we set off for a short 6km walk along a spec­tac­u­lar coast­line before head­ing to camp for a deli­cious meal of Spag Bol.

Through­out the dura­tion of the camp we walked a fair chunk of the coast, even abseil­ing the Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs. Repelling down the 15 and 40 metre rock faces pushed many of us past our com­fort zones and was a great bond­ing expe­ri­ence. The views were spec­tac­u­lar and we were able to see many dol­phins and whales.

On the final day half of the group went to Giants Cave whilst the other half went to Cal­gardup Cave.  An impromptu rave party was enjoyed by all!

We were all chal­lenged phys­i­cally and men­tally through­out the camp and I think we can all agree that this has not only strength­ened our friend­ships but it has also cre­ated new ones.

I would like to give a huge thank you to the adults that came on the camp for not only putting up with us but for look­ing after us, set­ting up for us, cook­ing for us, the list goes on. We are all so grate­ful for the time you have given up to take us on this adven­ture.

– Taj Hawke 

SW-Youth-Camp

Just a few thank yous for some behind the sce­nes prepa­ra­tion for the Camp: thank you Guy Edwards and Jim Baker for prep­ping the camp trailer, sort­ing through the tents and repairs; thanks to our bus dri­vers Anne-Marie Wider­man­ski and Steve Mignon (also, thanks Steve for organ­is­ing the loan of the 4WD from Toy­ota); thanks Mark Cleary for the shop­ping, trek plans and camp sup­port; thanks also to our walk­ers and camp sup­port­ers Phil and Tracey Bartlett and Rob Amos – it was a great team effort all round.

Thank you to our camp lead­ers Taj Hawke and Lillyan Rosich for your guid­ance and assis­tance along with fel­low 2nd and 3rd year campers – with our 2017 camp group.
