New!  2021-2022 South Coast Branch Cadet of the Year

South Coast Branch hosted an activity evening for the Cadets (u15 – u17 years) in our Branch, which focused on the ‘Take 3 for the Sea’ initiative. Shoalhaven Heads SLSC hosted the evening which received positive feedback. This was a fabulous opportunity for the teenagers to socialize with their peers and discuss very topical issues affecting everyone. Everyone agreed that they would like the Branch to award two nominees as ‘Cadet of the Year’ with the opportunity to travel to the NSWSLS Youth Opportunity Makers Workshop camp which is held each year in Sydney.

Congratulations to Mia Garrahy (Mollymook SLSC) and Robert McLean (Nowra Culburra SLSC) for representing South Coast Branch at the Youth Opportunity Makers Workshop Camp.

Lifesaving Exchange Program

The Lifesaving Exchange Program targets members who are currently Patrol Captains or identified to be future Patrol Captains between the ages of 18 and 30 years. The program has been running since 2009 involving over 115 members and provides participants with an exciting opportunity to experience different patrolling methods and environments in a fun, practical and interactive setting. The skills learnt during the program will be useful personally, and can be implemented within your own club. Overall, the program aims to:

 

  • Broaden the lifesaving experience and skills of participants

  • Provide development opportunities for our members

  • Increase lifesaving standards across New South Wales

 

The Lifesaving Exchange Program consists of two programs run concurrently on the Australia Day Long Weekend in January. The program is offered at no cost to the participant, with Surf Life Saving New South Wales covering the travel, accommodation and meal costs.
