As a young female in lifesaving, I’m continually inspired by the incredible role models in our movement.
On the 23rd of February I was fortunate enough to attend LSV’s Leadership Development Workshop and meet one of such women, Kate Bell.
Kate was the first female, and youngest ever President of Mentone LSC and hearing about how she overcame the attitudes of some club members, and the positive change she was able to induce within her club opened my eyes to the impact a relatively young person can have within an organization, and made me question what I want my impact to be as I continue my development within lifesaving.
The Fairhaven Sports Team competed at the Masters Championships at Lorne on Saturday Feb.11. In what can only be described as an amazing day, every single member of our competition team won a gold medal.
In total the team won 18 Gold 12 Silver & 5 Bronze medals on the day. An outstanding performance for a team of only 11 competitors.
Congratulations to all our Masters team members. You did our club proud.
In the second week of February this year, 28 young surf lifesavers began the week-long journey that was the 2017 SLSA National Leadership College.
As is often the case with programs of this nature, much of the week was an unknown quantity, and there was a feeling of nervous excitement across the assembled group from clubs across Australia.
All knew that the experience would push them outside of their comfort zone, and into a space where networks and lifelong connections would be formed, however few realised how significant the events of the week would be.
Club Champs were held on Saturday 28th January with an excellent turn out of competitors across all age groups in some testing conditions.
Congratulations to all winners but also to all participants. It was a wonderful Championship with lots of enthusiastic competitors who conducted themselves in a manner befitting our club and its culture.
