Woonona SLSC Achieve Silver Level

Woonona SLSC has become the first surf club in NSW to be awarded Silver Level Status as part of the Surf Life Saving Quality Clubs Program.

Silver Level Status is a tremendous achievement and is awarded to clubs which have shown outstanding progress over several seasons. The program recognises best practice operations within all areas of Surf Life Saving including lifesaving and patrols, training and education, surf sports, member services and a range of club management areas including administration, finance and marketing.

Volunteer surf lifesavers work hard each summer to keep the public safe on our beaches and the Quality Club Program is one way to recognise the commitment, teamwork and high level skills achieved by some clubs.

The program focuses on developing and maintaining the health of the Surf Life Saving movement throughout NSW by recognising the continual improvements and achievements that are made by many clubs.

Encouraging and awarding clubs for achieving best practice not only recognises the efforts of the club’s volunteers, but provides the local community and visitors to Woonona, a safer beach environment.

Club President, Peter Evert says Woonona has worked extremely hard to achieve best practice in all areas of its operations and is pleased to see its efforts rewarded. The Club has focused on up skilling its patrol captains and engaging youth members at every opportunity.

Woonona SLSC is to be presented with their Silver Level Status award on 27 January 2013 by SLSNSW President Tony Haven, coinciding with their 100th Year Anniversary Celebrations.

“It is fantastic to see Woonona SLSC recognised as the first club in NSW to be awarded Silver Level Status. The club has worked hard to develop and engage their members. I am very proud to be awarding this to them – especially in their centenary year,” said Tony Haven.
