It’s been a busy year for the NSW Administrator of the year Patricia Watts who has been heavily involved across all aspects of Surf Life Saving at her club Shelly Beach on the state’s Central Coast.

The life of a club administrator can be extremely challenging, but it is an important role in ensuring that everything gets done and that Surf Life Saving clubs can do what they do best which is to get lifesavers out on the beach doing patrol.

Patricia’s contributions to the effective administration of her club have enabled Shelley Beach to put best teams on the beach and in competition and, behind the scenes, ensures deadlines are met and the Club is compliant in all facets of Surf Life Saving and business practices.

She prides herself on her knowledge and skill within the administration field and ensures that her club is compliant in all key areas.

“I’m nicknamed the compliance queen but we’ve been so fortunate this year we actually achieved gold status in the quality club awards which was fantastic effort. It’s been wonderful to see the club excel in so many levels.

“I feel absolutely overwhelmed. Surf has been my family for the last 23 years. Surf has given me so much support and love and it’s about putting back into the movement what is has given me. To see the generations come through at our club has just been outstanding,” Patricia Watts said.

The 2017 SLSNSW Awards of Excellence are proudly presented by Stramit Building Products. Over 300 of Surf Life Saving’s most outstanding lifesavers, athletes, educators, coaches, and administrators from around the state gathered at Sydney’s iconic The Hilton Hotel to celebrate the season that was.
