SLS Sunshine Coast Branch Awards of Excellence

Published: July 21, 2022

Last Friday night the Sunshine Coast Awards of Excellence dinner was held at Sunshine Beach SLSC.
Congratulations to John Roderick who was awarded the prestigious Clive Hammond Medal which recognises individuals who have made an outstanding and special contribution to the development and wellbeing of their Club or Branch.
John has been a key part of our club in a number committee roles, including President, Secretary, CTO, Patrol Captain and Trainer and Assessor over many years. In addition over the last couple of year John has taken on the Peregian Beach SLSC President role facilitating, in consultation with Branch and Noosa Heads SLSC,  the ongoing transition of the Peregian Beach SLSC from a Branch run entity to a stand-alone club. Well done John, a very deserving recipient. All the best for the state level.
Special mention to Anthony Waring who was a finalist for the Lifesaver of the Year award and Delaney Rowe who was a finalist for Volunteer of the Year. Both were very deserving finalists and up against a lot of competition.

Support Coolum Surf Club

Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?

It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.

So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.

Coolum Beach SLSC Nippers

Does your child want to become a Nipper?

Looking for a fun summer sport where your kids will learn essential surf safety skills, gain confidence in the ocean, and meet new friends?

Coolum Nippers is the answer! Nippers run from the September school holidays to February/March and is open to kids from 5 to 12 yrs.

Not only will they learn surf safety and what surf lifesaving is all about, but also have the opportunity to compete in carnivals and have mid-week training to improve their skills.
