Many of us are heading down to help make this year’s Channel Challenge a big success. This is a super important fundraiser for the Club, and lots of people combined have invested hundreds of volunteer hours to make it happen.
The Club is working hard to make sure that the hours we spend fundraising are as efficient as possible.
The SEALS program has finished for the 2015 season with enormous success. Under the guidance of Rob Murphy a select group of young lifesavers participated in a series of talks, training sessions and leadership workshops over several months. These participants have gained indefinite skills in areas of lifesaving and personal development, pushing themselves physically and mentally through various teamwork and individual excercises.
Alan Pitts Youth Development Fund helps members achieve their potentialThis season, Woolamai Beach SLSC will offer financial support to help young members fulfil their potential, with the Alan Pitts Youth Development Fund. Financial support will be considered for applicants attending a development camp.
A new All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and Callout 4WD have been delivered in preparation for the season and are on the beach, thanks to support for the 4WD from Wonthaggi Toyota. As these vehicles are vital and valuable tools for our surf rescue service the club ran a compulsory induction over requal weekend for all members who wish to use the new equipment. This will ensure the investment in our essential rescue equipment enjoys a long life at Woolamai Beach.
Contact your patrol captain for more details on induction.
Preparation for jet ski rescue training for the Phillip Island Marine Rescue Service is underway. Work in the classroom and on the water will go ahead as soon as possible with selected participants. Ask your patrol captain for more details on jet ski rescue training.
