Surf Woman of the Year 2021-2022

Published: December 13, 2021 Last Updated: February 02, 2022

Nominations are now open for the season 2021-22 Surf Woman of the Year (SWOTY) program. After an amazing season from Jess Appel in 2020-21 it would be great to have a representative from Coolum Beach for the new season.

The SWOTY program seeks to engage the most capable women from surf lifesaving clubs across Queensland and develop their skills and experience to further their future careers both within and outside Surf Life Saving. It will also connect women from across the state and in turn build a powerful alumni network. If you are interested can you please let the office know. Details on the SWOTY program are available on the link below or, if you want to ask Jess on her thoughts, please send an email to .

This is a great opportunity for our female members to get involved and broaden your development in the lifesaving movement.

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.
