State Championships this weekend

Good luck to all of our surf sports athletes this weekend at the 2014 NSW Open Surf Life Saving Championships at Umina/Ocean Beach.

Hope the weather & surf is kind to everybody.

Looking forward to some great results from our Boat Section with the Men's A & U19 Men's crews leading the way, both are flying at the moment and come into the championships in great form. Good performances are also expected from our U23 Men plus Open & U23 Women's crews. Unfortunately our 220yrs Masters Men's crew had to withdraw due to an injury.  

Look out for Hannah Minogue leading the charge for the surf/craft competitors over the 3 days with strong medal chances expected in all disciplines for her. Beau Wheeler & Mitchell Fagerstrom will lead the way in the Open guys with a strong band of U19 & U17 guys looking for some strong performances (Lachlan O'Grady, Joshua Bond, Calvin Richards, Tobias Lunney, Brad Nees, Daniel St George). Our U17 girls & U15 girls could be the dark horses over the weekend with a bit of luck. Kiah Taylor, Emma Brown, Abbey Dawson, Mali Taylor, Bryar Lunney & Denver Richards will be flying the flag for the club.

We have two beach athlete's this weekend with Bernadette Cardillo (Open Female) and one of our Masters guys Nathan Cattell having a run in the 2km beach run in readiness for next week's masters events.

NSW Age (Nippers) Championships this weekend at Umina Beach 

Good Luck to everybody that will be attending the New South Wales Surf Life Saving Championships over the next three weekends. The club didn't have anyone competing in the Life Saving Championships last weekend, but we do have nippers, seniors & masters athletes making the journey to Umina/Ocean Beach on the Central Coast over the next three weeks.

Over three thousand of the state’s finest junior surf sports stars are set to descend on Ocean Beach/Umina for the first major weekend of the 2014 NSW Surf Life Saving Championships supported by ClubsNSW.

We have 23 young kids testing themselves this weekend starting today (28 February - 2 March).

Massive thanks to the parents/members that will be doing water safety, IRB duties, officials duties and respective age managers roles, you are very important to the success of this weekend. 

Unfortunately the weather isn't so kind this morning with rain & overcast conditions greeting everybody as they turned up at the beach.

To everybody have fun (including parents), it is not all about winning, yes medals are unreal, but enjoying yourself, competing with your mates and reaching personal goals in individual & team events.
