With the help of the 3-Council Solar my Club program we have now completed the installation of a solar power system on the Club’s rooftop that will produce clean green energy on site for facilities. It’s an important way we can help reduce our carbon footprint, save on energy bills and also maybe encourage our members and patrons to install solar power on their own properties. The Solar my Club team helped make the solar process easy as well as get external grants to help pay for the system! Thanks to the generous financial contributions of Clovelly Community Bank, NSW Community Building Partnerships, Resinc Solar and Randwick Council.

Our senior club Presentation Night was held on Saturday 5 June, after being postponed from May due to COVID. It was certianly a WILD night with everyone embrasing the Jungle/Safari theme and led by our tour guide Nicole Cooney, Director of Lifesaving Services.
Noah Teitler and Andrew Newrick were certainly the big winners of the night, and well deserved recognition of their dedictaion and service to the club
Congraulations to all our winners!
Keep reading to see our winners by section, and if you weren't able to join us on the night be sure to stop by the office and see Michelle for your prize. The Club office is open Tuesday and Friday from 9am - 4pm.
Check out all the pictures on our Facebook page!
Lifeaving patrol awards
It was a big season for lifesaving with a number of rescues, first aids and preventative actions. It was certainly an indication of the increased visitation we expereinced this season.
Great job by our Top 10 patrolling members for the season, who pulled some big hours - many who have plenty of additional un-recorded hours as well.
Make sure you come to the club office and pick up your prize if you didnt get it on the night!
Lifesaving eductaion awards
Our eductaion team had a massive season this year training over 130 new lifesavers while rolling out the new SRC and Bronze medallion courses. They put in a lot of hours making sure we have some of the best lifesavers in the country! A massive thank you to all of our trainers and assessors.
Congtratulations to all of our new lifesavers, and to all of those who up-skilled and trained in new awards! Be sure to come by the club office and pick up your certificates and medallions.
Our competitors were happy to be back on the sand and in the ocean after their season was cancelled last year. This season also saw our Youth Competitor go to Aussies with great success.
Congratulations to all our medallist and a big thank you to all our coaches and officials.
Kicking off the Major awards for the night was Competition. While everyone puts in a big effort here are some competitors and coaches who excelled this season.
It's great to see a few of our Youth competitors win awards, with Lucas, Evan and Lillie all taking away awards in their discplines. We'll certianly keep an eye on them as future State and Australian Champions. Dave walks away with Ski Competitor of the Year and Jennie and Max joint winners as Masters Competitors of the Year. We see Andy take the top prize, and his first award of the night, as Coach of the Year!
Next up we have our Major lifesaving awards - and some well deserving award winners.
Noah walks away with his first award of the night with Junior Lifesaver of the Year, following on from his recent Sydney Branch awards for Junior Lifesaver of the Year and U15s Lifesaver of the Year. Here Andy picks up another 2 awards for Senior Lifesaver of the Year and PC of the Year! Rene take the IRB Person of the Year, with his dedictaion to lifesaving IRB services.
We also recognise our dedicated trainers. Codie who in her first season as a trainer became qualified as both an SRC and ARTC trainer and helped with the Bronze squad takes away Rookie Trainer of the Year. Nicole, who took on the role of CTO for most of the season on top of her DOL responcibilities, guiding both new and experienced trainers through the launch of the new SRC and BM course, takes away the Trainer of the Year award.
And finally onto the Major Club Awards, which are our Club’s highest awards, and are given to those who have contributed overall to the Club.
Noah backs up his previous awards with a well deserverd Most Outstanding Cadet of the Year, I am sure we will see much more of Noah in the years to come. Isabella takes out Most Outstanding Junior of the Year with her services to lifesaving patrol as well as training. Most Outstanding Senior of the Year goes to Darren who was highly involved in nippers operations and water safety, as well in the lifesaving space mentoring new PCs. Our Associates of the Year are our dedictaed caretakers, Barry and Leslie, who over the COVID shutdown worked hard around the clubhouse in assisting with upgrades. The final, and biggest club honour, Clubman of the Year was awarded to Maria - who played a big role in the competition section as well as the lifesaving section looking after our Youth and creating many social outlets for them.
Great effort all, and once again congratulations!
Finally we can do it without our sponsors and supporters!
