Surf Life Saving New South Wales

Annual Report 2010/11

1


OUR INCEPTION The origins of surf lifesaving can be traced back to the actions of Mr William Gocher who, in September 1902 at Manly Beach, defied the law of the time by bathing during the prohibited daylight hours. As the popularity of surf bathing quickly grew into a national pastime, its dangers became apparent. Small groups of experienced, regular surfers began to form themselves into lifesaving bodies to help people who needed rescuing from an unfamiliar environment. As these clubs grew in size and number, the need for a united front to raise money and ask for help from local councils and the NSW State Government became apparent and the NSW Surf Bathing Association was formed on 18 October 1907. The name of the Association was later changed to the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia, and in 1991 it was changed again to Surf Life Saving Australia. Surf Life Saving NSW, formerly known as the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia (NSW State Centre) has operated within the state boundaries of NSW to fulfil the mission and goals of the Association since 1907.

OUR ORGANISATION Today, Surf Life Saving NSW has members across 129 clubs and 11 branches who perform thousands of rescues, preventative actions and first aid treatments each year. Since recording began in 1949, our volunteers have performed almost 337,000 rescues.

Surf Life Saving NSW was pleased to be recognised as one of 10 finalists in the revenue $5m to $20m category in the 2010 PwC Transparency Awards for the quality and transparency of our reporting

MINISTER’S FOREWORD It’s my great pleasure to congratulate the 70,000 members of Surf Life Saving in NSW for their commitment, sacrifice and vigilance in keeping our beaches safe again this year. NSW is fortunate to have some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world and thankfully we also enjoy a world-class surf rescue service delivered by the men and women of the 129 surf clubs which stretch along our coastline. The activities and achievements documented in this report speak volumes for the hugely important role Surf Life Saving NSW plays in the lives of the local communities it serves. In metropolitan and regional areas alike, the surf club is a real focus for community engagement.

On behalf of every citizen of this state, I thank every one of the volunteers and the families who support them, for keeping our beaches safe each season. The surf club is often the hub for a variety of activities and programs which unites communities. The O’Farrell Government recognises the significant contribution made by our committed surf lifesaving volunteers in NSW. I am proud to confirm the NSW Government will continue to fund upgrades to Surf Life Saving clubs through the Surf Club Capital Facility Grant program, by making $8 million available to clubs in need over four years.

The Government also recognises the contribution made by Surf Life Saving extends beyond the beach, reaching into people’s homes and workplaces and schools. Programs which educate children about surf safety such as the Telstra Beach to Bush program, and the hugely popular Nippers junior development program, are instrumental in ensuring successful water safety outcomes. Through the important work conducted by the Australian Lifesaving Academy, there are now tens of thousands of people who have completed CPR and first aid courses in the community, who are now equipped with the vital skills to potentially save a life. Even when the red and yellow flags come down, volunteers are still looking after us through the SLSNSW Emergency Response System, where surf lifesavers work hand in hand with their emergency services counterparts to respond to coastal accidents and emergencies, anywhere, anytime. The importance of the movement to the lives of the people of NSW is evident. On behalf of every citizen of this state, I thank every one of the volunteers and the families who support them, for keeping our beaches safe each season.

PRESIDENT & CEO Welcome to the 104th Annual Report of Surf Life Saving New South Wales. We are proud to report and present to you, our major achievements for the 2010/11 year. It has been another successful year for Surf Life Saving in NSW with our membership growing to over 72,000, demonstrating our continued appeal and presence in the community. This year our volunteers in NSW contributed in excess of 638,000 patrol hours, performed 7074 rescues and more than 160,000 preventative actions. This is an outstanding achievement. Each and every member of our organisation who contributed is to be congratulated. This year saw a reduction in the number of coastal drownings in NSW to 22. While this figure is less than last year’s, efforts need to continue to focus on further reducing this number. On top of our scheduled patrols, our members were ready to respond 24 hours’ a day, 365 days a year through the Emergency Response system which responded to 212 call outs. To all of the State Duty Officers, we thank you for the enormous contribution you have made to saving lives anywhere, anytime. On a lighter note, our Surf Sports season was a great success. The Allphones NSW Surf Life Saving Championships were hosted this year by Cudgen Headland SLSC in March and were an outstanding success, attracting over 6000 competitors to the Tweed region. To the Cudgen Headland SLSC, thank you for your efforts this year and we look forward to heading north again in 2012. Twenty four clubs received funding under this year’s NSW Government $2million Capital Facility Development Program. We are grateful for the

support from the NSW Government and look forward to the program continuing. In Member Services we saw the reinvigoration of the 18-25 Development Networking Program which offered youth members an opportunity to develop and improve their leadership skills. We also continued to deliver excellent member development programs including the Junior Lifesaver of the Year, the Youth Opportunity Makers Workshop, and the Young People in Emergency Services Forum. Our commercial training operation continues to grow with over 33,000 first aid qualifications awarded last year, an increase of around 8% on the previous year. Our expertise in this area is in demand and the Australian Lifesaving Academy (NSW) has successfully contracted to provide first aid at major sporting and cultural events such as the V8 Supercars, and outdoor music festivals and concerts. Our sponsors and supporters are vital to our ongoing viability as a community organisation and we thank the NSW Government, DHL, Telstra, Westpac, Allphones and Stramit Building Products for backing the efforts of our members in so many ways.

This year our volunteers in NSW contributed in excess of 638,000 patrol hours, performed 7074 rescues and more than 160,000 preventative actions. Thank you to all of our trainers, assessors and competition officials who made such a contribution this season. Our organisation would not be able to function without your enormous passion and enthusiasm. To our Directors and Advisers, thank you for your support and hard work in steering SLSNSW in the right direction and having the courage to make a number of tough decisions this year. The Board would like to extend a special thanks to Henry Scruton, for all his fantastic work as Deputy President, and welcome Kerry Clancy, who will be taking on the role of Deputy President this year. To our hard-working staff, thank you for your enthusiasm and efforts in ensuring the goals set by the Board and the State Council have been met. Finally, a sincere thanks to all our volunteers and families who support them. We wish you all the best for the season.

Surf life saving in NSW attracts a small amount of government funding for ongoing operations and relies heavily on applying for one-off grants for specific projects, along with partnering with the corporate sector and of course, the generous contributions of members of the public.

An independent report by PricewaterhouseCoopers released in 2011 estimates the total economic value of Surf Life Saving NSW’s coastal drowning and injury prevention services in 2009/10 was $1.6 billion a year. The key findings in the “What is the economic contribution of Surf Life Saving in Australia” report include, in 2009/10: • The estimated value of the volunteer surf life saving time donated by volunteers in NSW was $21 million; • The cost-benefit in terms of lives saved and injuries prevented for every dollar invested in Surf Life Saving’s volunteer water safety services nationally is 29 to 1; • It is estimated, in the absence of Surf Life Saving’s water safety services, almost 600 additional people across the country would have lost their lives on our beaches and coastal waterways.

LIFESAVING SERVICES Collectively, Surf Life Saving NSW has been successful in fulfilling its life saving mission.

as far as the impact we have - each role, each member of SLS is a key part of the machine.

recently in the Coffs Harbour area, which now means all branches in NSW are equipped for RWC support operations.

During the past season more than 20,000 volunteer surf lifesavers stood side-byside along the busiest stretch of coastline in Australia, saving 7074 lives and preventing 160,000 others from getting into a life-threatening situation.

At its core, volunteer patrol efforts are succeeding - people are not drowning at patrolled beaches, during patrol hours. The challenge is now to maintain this level of service provision and begin to look at ways to plug those other ‘gaps’ where people are still drowning – after patrol hours and at unpatrolled beaches (over 200 of them in the past five years).

In analysing recent statistics, identified danger periods include the one to two hours after the normal club patrols end and the 2-3 weekends after the end of the patrol season. At the recent Branch Directors of Lifesaving Conference, options were discussed which may address these shortfalls in the future (while not compromising the core service provision.)

This great result wasn’t achieved with a single campaign or new piece of equipment, but through the ongoing work of our dedicated and professional volunteers, day in, day out. Be it the club captain creating the near-impossible patrol roster which works for all, the gear steward hauling outboards to the mechanic, the patrol captain managing 10,000 people on Australia Day or the new surf lifesaver giving their all to revive a drowning victim, the value of what we achieve each year cannot be measured in $$$, nor restricted to just the lives saved

18 Annual Report 2010/11

This past season saw a significant effort made to address this problem. Through the SLSNSW Emergency Response System, members responded to 212 incidents (mostly after-hours) and in doing so saved countless lives. This was achieved through a huge effort from all branches and clubs to enhance their Duty Officer and callout team processes in recent times. New Rescue Water Craft (jetski) services were established, most

The expansion of the SurfCom radio network has also enhanced the communications and coordination support available to patrols. The Far North Coast, North Coast and Mid North Coast branches are now all linked to the Ballina SurfCom and the Lower North Coast, Hunter and Central Coast branches are linked to the Avoca SurfCom. The Far North Coast and Central Coast branches must be commended for the support

This joint effort will also ease the workload on branches and clubs leading into each new season. The work of clubs and branches doesn’t end when the patrol season does. During the off season phones are ringing hot as clubs and services prepare their equipment, apply for grants, set rosters, run pre-season workshops and of course respond to ongoing emergency callouts. With almost 80% of all Australians visiting the beach each year, it’s no surprise that Surf Life Saving is one of the most recognised and well-loved brands in Australia. Our volunteers should be justifiably proud to don the red and yellow as they stand watch at the water’s edge each season. To all our volunteers, thank you for your exceptional efforts over the past year and good luck for the next.

Lifeguard of the Year Scott McCartney

Northern NSW Lifeguard Coordinator, Scott McCartney, was named SLSA Lifeguard of the Year along with receiving the NSW Lifeguard of the Year award. Scott oversees ALS operations from the Tweed Shire to the Nambucca Shire and has strengthened relationships in the region especially with Surf Life Saving clubs. Scott has proven himself an outstanding lifeguard over many years and takes pride in mentoring and developing lifeguards through education and training. Scott helps by offering surf lifesavers a pathway into employment with the ALS by using their skills gained as volunteers. These awards recognise Scott’s great work and achievements in northern NSW.

20 Annual Report 2010/11

The ALS would like to thank councils, national parks, resorts and all Surf Life Saving services for their ongoing support. Surf Life Saving Clubs in particular have done a fantastic job and with their support we provide a united front in ensuring the safety of the beachgoing community.

COMMERCIAL TRAINING AUSTRALIAN LIFESAVING ACADEMY FIRST AID TRAINING Saving lives is what Surf Life Saving is all about whether it be ‘on the beach’ or ‘off the beach’ in our community. Teaching how to save a life through the delivery of effective first aid training and the provision of frontline first aid services at NSW events, are the two core functions of the Australian Lifesaving Academy NSW. During the past year the Australian Lifesaving Academy NSW has continued to grow its first aid training services. During the period 2010/2011 the Academy trained 33,539 awards which was an increase of 7.13% from 2009/2010. Since the inception of the training division in 2004 the Academy has now delivered over 130,000 awards and the accompanying first aid and CPR knowledge to members of the NSW public. The Academy expects to exceed the 150,000 awards mark before the end of 2011 which will be both a fantastic milestone and a testament to the ongoing hard work and energy from the Australian Lifesaving Academy NSW team. Of the 33,539 total awards delivered during 2010/2011, 11,493 were First Aid awards and 15,016 were CPR awards. The remaining 7030 awards comprised of Emergency Care, Advanced Resuscitation Techniques, Defibrillation, Spinal Management, Childcare First Aid, Junior First Aid, Junior CPR (Basic Resus), Remote First Aid and Asthma and Anaphylaxis workshops. A snapshot of the growth in the awards delivered to the NSW public by the Australian Lifesaving Academy NSW is represented below.

During the year, the Academy experienced significant events and changes to our operations. The Academy moved head office with Surf Life Saving NSW from Narrabeen, to an impressive new building in Belrose. The new premises is equipped with state of the art training facilities to enable the Academy to deliver additional public training courses on-site. The Academy also acquired additional sales and training staff to accommodate growth in services. In March 2011 the Academy underwent the VETAB Registered Training Organisation re-registration audit, which was successful. A highlight of this audit process and report was the robust and comprehensive systems and support processes the Academy has in place to ensure quality in training and assessment is maintained. The Australian Resuscitation Council released updated guidelines in December 2010. The key amendments were to the resuscitation guidelines and subsequent addition of “S – Send for Help” to the DRSABCD protocol. These guideline changes were incorporated into the training delivered by the Australian Lifesaving Academy NSW across the board at the beginning of 2011. During November and December 2010 the Academy partnered with Westpac and News Limited for the Westpac Community CPR program. This program enabled members of the public to submit lifesaving stories to News Limited publications for the chance to win a free

CPR training course for their friends and family. This was a national program and in NSW alone, the Academy delivered free CPR training to over 500 lucky winners. This successful program would not have been possible without the support of Westpac and News Limited.

First Aid Services The delivery of frontline First Aid Services grew during 2010/2011. The Academy continued to extend experience in first aid training to the provision of First Aid Services at events throughout NSW. During 2010/2011 some of the events included The V8 Supercars Sydney Telstra 500, The Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife World, Premier’s Department Australia Day festivities, Premier’s Department International Student Festival, PISA schools sporting competition, Foo Fighters concert, Wollongong Illawarra Roller Derby and X Factor television program. In summary it was another year of both challenges and achievements for the first aid training and first aid services team. The dedication of both full time and contract staff is the main contributor to these successes and thanks go to all those involved over the past 12 months who are so passionate and committed to saving lives and helping others save lives.

AUSTRALIAN LIFESAVING ACADEMY

With another successful year of growth and major achievements behind us, I would like to thank the Branch Directors of Education, Academy staff and everyone involved in education within their club and branch for their ongoing support and commitment to the organisation and their local community.

MEMBER TRAINING received through an online survey This year communication within the Education portfolio was a big focus. Three emailed to conference attendees after the event. Survey participants were asked major initiatives included: to rate the conference overall. Responses included “Excellent” (59%) and “Good” • the highly successful Chief Training Officer (CTO) Conference, (41%). 96% responded they would attend • Directors of Education Exchange again and the Academy team is proud that 79% of responses rated the Academy Program and staff as “Excellent”, 17% “Good” and 4% • mentoring program in each of “N/A”. the branches. Mentoring Program While there has always been a loosely organised mentoring arrangement within the clubs and branches, this year we formalised the system. This ensures that probationary Trainers, Assessors and Facilitators are mentored by an appropriate individual and that contact is maintained once they go out into the field. It also appropriately equips mentors to get the most from the experience. Chief Training Officer (CTO) Conference The inaugural Chief Training Officer Conference in July 2010 was attended by 130 members, with the majority of clubs represented. The conference was a professional development opportunity and the participants shared experiences, learned from one another and took part in debate. Events such as this give our members the chance to feel connected to the larger education network across the state. Existing CTOs were re-motivated and those new to the role learned what was expected of them. The weekend featured sessions on coordinating resources, team development, SurfGuard, the role of the CTO, managing change and communication. The conference was a great success, evidenced by the positive feedback

Directors of Education Exchange Program The inaugural Directors of Education Exchange Program was held during March-April 2011. The program involved the current Branch Directors of Education from country branches (FNC, MNC, LNC, HUN, SC, FSC) visiting the city branches (SYD, SNB). The Directors all appreciated the opportunity to observe how other branches train and assess their Bronze Medallion and SRC candidates. They found it particularly valuable to be able to compare notes and see that some of the problems are universal across the state while others are branch specific. All of the trainers and assessors at the clubs visited were very welcoming and keen to assist in any way they could with information and answering specific questions. The Directors went home with lots of new ideas on how they could improve education within their branches, but were also reassured that they were on the right track. Our thanks again to the host branches.

for a further five years. Congratulations to everyone who helped us raise the bar! The report from the Auditor was fantastic and praised many areas, but in particular: 1. The robust and comprehensive systems and support processes which are in place to ensure that quality training and assessment is maintained. 2. The transparent and well documented requirements for feedback and continuous improvement activity which have been inbuilt into our day to day operations and management system. 3. The web-based information we provide. We are of course very proud of all that we have achieved in a relatively short period of time, and take this as confirmation that what we are doing is positive, necessary and worthwhile.

Resource Development As always, SLSA in consultation with the states, has been developing and reviewing a number of resources. With the Australian Resuscitation Council changes to CPR, this dominoed to require changes to the majority of our resources. Due to be released for the 2011/12 season is the Silver Medallion Advanced First Aid. This is a pathway award for members, received on the successful Registered Training Organisation completion of Advanced Resuscitation Our RTO registration was due to expire in Techniques, Spinal Management, Pain January 2010, however we had a number Management and an additional module. of extensions until our re-registration site audit in March 2011. We were successful in the audit and have been re-registered


Rip Current Awareness Day We were involved in the SLS Rip Current Awareness Day in February to turn the spotlight on the dangers of rip currents. The day involved synchronised dye release at all Sydney beaches, a media conference and support services display. Unfortunately a strong southerly change arrived early which meant that most beach goers had left and we had limited media interest (in Bondi it was raining with a 40 knot onshore wind!) The concept as a means of public education is still endorsed and there are plans to stage a national Awareness Day next season.

COMMUNITY EDUCATION 2010 Telstra Beach to Bush Program This is the eighth year that Telstra has sponsored the largest and most innovative surf safety education program in Australia. Telstra continues to be extremely generous with the support and funding it provides to the program.

This year’s NSW Telstra Beach to Bush tour involved 18 presenters from four branches. A total of 10,489 students across 64 schools received surf safety education by participating in the program. This year we saw a drop in numbers compared to previous years. The was due to the fact that this year

our presenters travelled to extremely remote areas we had never been before including Broken Hill, White Cliffs, Maules Creek and Lightning Ridge. Some of these new areas have only one school per town such as White Cliffs, with a total of six students.

SURF SPORTS 2010 NSW POOL RESCUE CHAMPIONSHIPS 4-5 September 2010 Peninsula Leisure Centre - Woy Woy

The 2010/11 season was another outstanding year for surf sports in NSW with increases in participation numbers at most of SLSNSW’s major surf sports events, all development and high performance programs delivered at a professional standard and numerous coaching and officials education opportunities provided to our members. As expected, participation numbers for the 2011 Allphones NSW Surf Life Saving Championships were down on the previous year due to the move outside of the metropolitan area, however all other NSW major events attracted good entry numbers, including:

SLSNSW cleaned up in the New South Wales Sports Federation Awards with Outstanding Officials Awards being presented to Toni Jennar (Officials Contribution), Carmel Tapley (State/ Regional) John Watson AM (Outstanding Officials Contribution) and Matthew Thompson (Young Official). This was an exceptional achievement which was well deserved by these officials who spent endless volunteer hours officiating throughout the 2010/11 season.

At the Allphones NSW Surf Life Saving Championships, SLSNSW paid tribute to our officials by holding the inaugural Officials Recognition Night. This event included a sit down formal dinner and • The Stramit NSW Country Surf awards ceremony where SLSNSW Life Saving Championships up by recognised the outstanding achievement 14 % on the previous year. of 12 devoted members who have • The NSW Endurance reached the milestone achievement of Championships experiencing officiating at NSW Surf Sports events for record entry numbers, up 9.25% over 50 years.

The 2010 Pool Rescue Championships were once again successfully completed at Peninsula Leisure Centre with 215 competitors competing in a variety of events conducted under International Lifesaving Federation rules. The level of competition and athlete ability continues to improve with some outstanding performances across all age divisions. In its fourth consecutive year the event was conducted over two days for the first time to facilitate the ongoing growth of Pool Rescue Competition. Don Van Keimpema was the carnival referee for this event and along with his fellow officials did an outstanding job. Wanda SLSC convincingly claimed the overall point score (332 pts), well ahead of Terrigal (179.5 pts) in second and Cronulla (161 pts) finishing third.

TALENTED ATHLETE PROGRAM 6 -8 October 2010 Sydney Academy of Sport The NSW Talented Athlete Program provides development opportunities and pathways for U13-U15 athletes who have shown promise in surf sports within their branches. In total there were 44 male and female athletes from 10 out of the 11 branches, who participated in a three- day intensive camp at the Sydney Academy of Sport. Participants were exposed to some of the leading coaches in NSW who led them through training sessions analysing technique and improving skills across all disciplines. The program also consisted of athlete education sessions including nutrition, goal setting, core body strength and enhancing flexibility. Thank you to state team coaches Jeff Mowbray and Scott Jones and assistant coaches Glenn Moriarty, Graham Bruce, Jim McCullagh, Martin Lynch and Michael Kember for their professional delivery of training sessions and support towards this program.


2010 NSW ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS 16 October 2010 Palm Beach SLSC Opening the NSW summer surf season once again, the NSW Endurance Championships attracted some of the sport’s leading athletes to test their fitness in extended swim, run, board, ski and ironperson events.

2011 STRAMIT NSW COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS 15-17 January 2011 South West Rocks SLSC The 2011 Stramit NSW Country Surf Life Saving Championships were successfully held at South West Rocks SLSC for the second consecutive year. Entry numbers were up on last year’s event, a reflection on the quality carnival that the host club and venue is capable of delivering.

Despite challenging conditions at Palm Beach, the event was a huge success with record participation numbers. For the first time, SLSNSW invited the public (non SLS members) to compete alongside NSW’s elite endurance athletes in the Ocean Swim and 5km Run events. This was embraced by all involved and it is hoped that public entries will continue to grow in the future.

Despite cyclone surf conditions causing water competition to be suspended on the Sunday afternoon and the 2010 INTERBRANCH event being relocated to Trial Bay on the Monday of competition, Referee CHAMPIONSHIPS Mark Fisher and his team of officials The Lakes SLSC successfully coordinated all of the 450 11th & 12th December 2010 events which included U8s through to Masters, March Past and Board Riding in The Interbranch Championships the program.The overall point score was showcase the best of the best from each taken out by Byron Bay in an impressive Carnival Referee, David Unger ensured an of the branches in NSW.

NSW’s leading coaches put the athletes through practical and technical sessions in surf, beach and pool rescue disciplines. The athletes were also provided with the opportunity to race at Round 1 of the Sydney Water Series. Thank you to coaches Brett Dowker (Australian Team Coach), Jeff Mowbray (NSW State Team Coach), Scott Jones (NSW Assistant Team Coach), Scott Thompson, Darren Peters, Sean Hendry, and Kerri Clarke (Assistant State Team Manager), for their outstanding contribution to this amazing development opportunity for our NSW athletes.

The NSW team equally matched the Queensland team in both pool rescue and beach events but unfortunately lost too many valuable points from disqualifications. The NSW team gave away 42 potential points from 6 disqualifications in the Pool Rescue events on day one and received a further disqualification in the beach events on day two. Without these disqualifications, it could have been a vastly different result.

SLSNSW U/21 DEVELOPMENT TEAM 28 January – 5 February 2011 Mt. Maunganui, New Zealand For the first time in many years SLSNSW sent a NSW Development Team overseas to gain experience in international competition. The team comprised of six male and six female U/21 athletes as well as NSW State Team Manager Gary Mensforth and Sue Rossi who was selected as the Development Female Official and Chaperone. The team competed extremely well in the 2011 Lion Foundation New Zealand Surf League against Surf Life Saving New Zealand’s leading open surf sports athletes. The team dominated against their Trans-Tasman rivals in the traditional surf sports events, but finished third in the overall point score after losing valuable points in the IRB and outrigger events due to inexperience in these disciplines. This initiative strengthened SLSNSW’s athlete and official development pathways and after the success of this tour, SLSNSW will be sending a team to compete again in 2012.

2011 Allphones NSW Age Surf Life Saving Championships 11-13 March 2011

2011 Allphones NSW Open and Masters Surf Life Saving Championships 17-20 March 2011

Kingscliff Beach, Cudgen Headland SLSC The 2011 ALLPHONES NSW Surf Life Saving Championships was hosted by Tweed Shire Council and the Cudgen Headland SLSC at Kingscliff Beach. This was the first time that this event was held further north than the Hunter Branch since the Junior Championships were conducted at the same location in 1997. As forecasted, entry numbers were down significantly due to the move outside of the metropolitan area with a total of

5,760 participants (compared with 8,486 in the previous year), including 2,781 entries received from U8s to U14s in the Age Championships, 2,226 in the Open Championships and 753 entries in the Masters Championships. Manly continued its winning streak in both the Age and Opens Championships, winning the Age Championships for the fourth consecutive year ahead of North Cronulla (2nd) and Cronulla (3rd) and winning the Open Championships for the second year in a row ahead of Cronulla (2nd) and Wanda (3rd). In the Masters competition, Hunter Club, Redhead, took home the overall Championships point score trophy followed by Byron Bay in second and Queenscliff in third place.

Saxon Bird Memorial Trophy

The NSW Surf Life Saving Championships could not have been possible without the 484 dedicated officials who did an amazing job over the seven long days of competition. SLSNSW would like to pay a special tribute to the three Carnival Referees, John Restuccia (Masters), Alan Parsons (Opens) and Craig Susans (Age) who overcame many challenges at Kingscliff and conducted three smooth and efficient Championship events.

Jacob Lollback Memorial Trophy

TWO NEW RECOGNITION TROPHIES Two new memorial trophies were introduced and presented at this year’s Allphones NSW Surf Life Saving Championships in memory of two of SLSNSW’s most promising junior athletes who both passed away in recent years in tragic circumstances. The Saxon Bird Memorial Trophy was named in honour of Queenscliff’s Saxon Bird, who was a previous U/19 Ironman and Surf Race Champion and was presented to Kyle O’Brien of Cronulla SLSC for winning the U/19 Surf Race event. The Jacob Lollback Memorial Trophy was named in honour of the late Jacob Lollback who was a past U/19 Ironman and Board Champion for the Yamba SLSC and was awarded to Mitchell Allum of Wanda SLSC for taking out the U/19 Board Race event.

2011 NSW BEST OF THE BEST BOAT CHALLENGE 5 March 2011 Wanda SLSC SLSNSW teamed up with the Australian Surf Rowers League (ASRL) again in 2011 to conduct the second NSW Best of the Best Boat Challenge. The event was scheduled to be held at Wanda SLSC, however due to large seas, the event was forced to move on the day to the flat water contingency location at Kurnell. This event provides a pathway for the leading surf boat crews in all divisions of the five existing branch/regional surfboat series in NSW. In total, 72 crews who were successful in qualifying for this event after performing well in their branch/ regional boat series battled it out for the honour of the ‘Best of the Best’ crew. This event continues to build prestige and has a strong future as it provides great support to the already existing branch surfboat series which have been extremely successful in building the sport of surfboat competition over many years.


2011 NSW IRB PREMIERSHIP Round 1 - 30 April 2011 Nrth Narrabeen SLSC Round 2 - 14 May 2011 Towradgi SLSC Round 3 - 28 May 2011 Pacific Palms SLSC Round 4 - 25 June 2011 Terrigal SLSC IRB competition continues to grow in NSW with an increase in competition numbers of approximately 12% on the previous year. While SLSNSW saw two new clubs competing in IRB competition this season - Coogee and Batemans Bay, this significant increase in competitor numbers was mainly due to growth from the existing IRB clubs. The NSW IRB Premiership Series provided NSW’s leading lifesavers with an opportunity to showcase their surf rescue skills over four rounds of competition. The Premiership Series was once again dominated by Thirroul who took out the Overall Premiership Series Club Point Score ahead of Caves Beach (2nd) and Kiama Downs (3rd). The four host clubs and series referees Peter Burst, Malcolm Flew, Don Allan and Mark Fisher did an incredible job at each round and we thank them for their time and effort in making this series the success that it was.

NSW IRB CHAMPIONSHIPS

LOOKING FORWARD There are many positive signs for a another big year for Surf Sports in 2011/12 with numerous Level 1 and 2 coaching and official courses scheduled throughout the state in the off-season. The 11 Branch Directors of Surf Sports, SLSNSW Surf Sports Advisers and staff will be meeting in Sydney for their annual forum in July. This involves various workshops with the NSW Branch Directors of Surf Sports and Surf Sports Advisers that will assist in the continuous improvement of Surf Sports in NSW.

11-12 June 2011 Woolgoolga SLSC For the second consecutive year, the NSW IRB Championships was hosted by one of IRB competition’s traditional venues, Woolgoolga SLSC. Consistent with the IRB Premiership Series, participation numbers were up on the previous year’s entries, attracting 294 competitors compared with 254 competitors in 2010. With a new, proactive NSW IRB Advisory Panel conducting various IRB development programs throughout the state, this healthy growth is certain to continue.

SLSNSW has plans to further build on the already strong surf sports development framework provided to our members. To develop the necessary skills to mentor our up and coming officials and coaches at Branch level, SLSNSW will be inviting experienced surf sports members from each of the branches to participate in an Australian Sports Commission Mentor’s course.

Referee Mark Fisher and his officials once again did an amazing job conducting an enjoyable event under challenging conditions with constant rain over the two days of competition. With their open Male competitors leading the way, dark horses, South Maroubra were victorious in the overall point score ahead of Caves Beach (2nd) and Kiama Downs (3rd).

COACH AND OFFICIAL EDUCATION Developing coaches is the key to SLSNSW maintaining our position as the leading Surf Sports state in Australia. Six Level 1 Coaching Courses were conducted across the state during the 2010/11 season to provide coaching opportunities for our members with a total of 126 members attending courses for their Level 1 Coaching Accreditation. There were also two Level 2 Coaching courses delivered with 16 coaches attending. Thanks to the SLSNSW Coaching facilitators Kevin Neilson and Peter Kirkwood for the professionalism displayed when conducting these quality courses.

Our officials are some of the best in Australia providing two thirds of all accredited officials across the country. Officials’ accreditation courses continue to be conducted by the branches, ensuring a sustainable future for surf sports events. This season SLSNSW also held a Level 2 Officials Course at Warrilla Barrack Point. This course was well supported with 21 officials from 7 branches up skilling to this award. The participants who attended this course will be mentored to fill senior official positions at events conducted by all levels of the organisation.

SLSNSW will be working closely with the branches to build skills at grass root levels by conducting three Regional Development Clinics and numerous Pool Rescue Clinics throughout the state. These new development initiatives, along with the strong development and high performance programs already provided for athletes by SLSNSW will ensure that Surf Sports will continue to grow and expand into the future.

Enhancing the Surf Life Saving brand and communicating important information to the public and our own members is the main goal of the Media and Communications strategy.

covering from the Queensland border down to Coffs Harbour. This increased coverage was good news for our event sponsors and athletes, delivering them substantial exposure.

To meet these strategic aims, we conduct an extensive media relations program, which focuses on being both proactive and reactive to events and incidents which occur throughout the year. In addition we communicate to our members in a variety of ways, including a weekly e-newsletter to all clubs, a comprehensive website which hosts a variety of resources for members and the public, regular updates from individual portfolios and directly disseminating important information to support clubs and branches.

Our volunteer season launch “Raising of the Flags” is a colourful event which attracts much attention from media. This season we had raising of the flags ceremonies at numerous locations throughout the state, including Sydney’s Cronulla Beach. These events give clubs, branches and SLSNSW the opportunity to showcase the diversity of the surf lifesaving movement.

The Media team also assists to promote fundraising and other events, including development camps, conferences, athlete programs and major beneficiary events such as Boardies Day, our national annual fundraiser. Although much of our media activities involve reporting on incidents such as rescues and drownings, we also had many opportunities to attract positive media attention for the efforts and achievements of our members. The NSW Surf Life Saving Championships was extremely well supported by local media organisations in the Tweed region and we successfully achieved a 20% increase in media coverage from the event. We partnered with APN Media group to help produce daily supplements during the event which were published in four of the major regional newspapers

Raffle Program Telemarketing Guardians of the Surf

Surf Life Saving NSW engages the following agencies to assist with fundraising:

Appco Group Sports (Raffle) Surf Life Saving NSW in conjunction with Appco Group Sports undertakes four raffle Now in its fourth year, our state-wide campaigns each year. Appco manages Emergency Response System which the raffle sites where the sellers will be coordinates callouts anytime, anywhere, present each week as well as ensuring that has grown significantly and our media there are sellers at these sites (primarily team is kept busy updating the public, shopping centres and approved public through the media, on these serious sites) and SLSNSW is responsible for incidents and successful rescues. managing the program and for organising At various times during the year the Media tickets, prizes, collateral and marketing team also conducts training with frontline materials. volunteers including Duty Officers and key branch spokespeople, to upskill them in dealing with media inquiries, conducting media interviews and proactively generating media interest in the activities and achievements of their members. Raffle Program A new strategic goal for the Media and Direct Marketing & Other Communications team is to explore and Donations expand into the world of social media during the coming 12 months. Our aim is Guardians of the Surf to better utilise online and social media networking tools to deliver information faster and more effectively to our members, particularly younger volunteers.

FUNDRAISING BREAKDOWN


Hello connect (Telemarketing) Hello Connect is contracted by SLSNSW to provide a telemarketing service in conjunction with the Surf Life Saving NSW raffle program. This involves telemarketing on behalf of SLSNSW by selling raffle ticket lucky numbers and seeking donations over the phone with a goal to acquire new donors for our organisation. Surf Life Saving Foundation/Appco Group Sport (Guardians of the Surf) The Surf Life Saving Foundation (the fundraising arm of Surf Life Saving Australia) coordinates the Guardians of the Surf regular giving program. The Guardians of the Surf is a door-to-door fundraising initiative where collectors seek regular monthly donations from the public. The sellers are also contracted by Appco Group Sports via the Surf Life Saving Foundation. Raffle Program and Telemarketing The amount of funding distributed to clubs and branches is dependent on our fundraising income and in the first six months of 2010/11, the raffle program (our core fundraising activity) was underperforming by 50%. January saw the introduction of a new Fundraising Event Coordinator, James King, and from there our team focused on getting the program right and working in collaboration with our fundraising agencies, Appco Group Sports and Hello Connect, to reinvigorate the program. The last six months saw rapid improvement in raffle sales and despite a disappointing first half, the program finished 6% under budget at the end of the 2010/11 financial year. Guardians of the Surf Like the raffle program, funds raised from the Guardians of the Surf (regular giving) program are equally distributed to clubs and branches. The 2010/11 results were disappointing with the program finishing 20% under budget and feedback from donors suggest that this program was affected by the natural disasters in Queensland and the increased cost of living. Surf Life Saving NSW is working with the Foundation on new ways to engage and recognise our regular donors including providing timely news and information to show our supporters how integral their donations are to saving lives on the beach.

GOALS FOR 2011-12 • Further improvement in the Raffle Program by working with agencies on new initiatives and expanding the program •

Rewarding and recognising long term Guardians of the Surf donors and encouraging new donors to support our movement

FUNDRAISING EVENTS As well as our raffle and regular giving programs, Surf Life Saving NSW also drives fundraising events to raise funds towards SLSNSW lifesaving initiatives and programs. Sydney Telstra 500, 3-5 December 2010 For the second consecutive year Surf Life Saving NSW was chosen as the Charity Recipient for the Sydney Telstra 500 V8 Supercar event at Homebush. With

Telstra’s support and generosity Surf Life Saving NSW was given 10,000 branded caps to give to those who gave a gold coin donation. Surf Life Saving NSW also had our education trailer onsite and we had a team of volunteers help with collections and educating the public on surf safety. Boardies Day, 3 December 2010 The Surf Life Saving Foundation once again drove a national fundraising day in the form of Boardies Day. Boardies Day is an easy way for everyone in the community to raise funds for Surf Life Saving - swapping your corporate wear or school uniform for your favourite pair of board shorts and make a donation in support of Surf Life Saving. In 2010 many schools and corporate organisations in NSW got on board to raise funds for Surf Life Saving NSW or their local surf club.

GRANTS This year marked an era of significant growth for Surf Life Saving NSW, moving to our new headquarters, developing and implementing fresh programs and initiatives across all portfolios and focusing on ways to future proof our movement by investing in our most important asset - our people. To support this growth Surf Life Saving NSW sought funding assistance from Government, Corporate and Philanthropic bodies and we wish to acknowledge the following organisations: NSW OFFICE OF COMMUNITIES, SPORT AND RECREATION - Services Funding and Capital Facility Development Program The Department of Sport and Recreation’s continued support of Surf Life Saving NSW under the Services Funding provides invaluable financial assistance towards our operating and administration costs. Furthermore, for the sixth year running, the Department supported our clubs through the $2 Million Capital Facility Development Program. Surf Life Saving NSW facilitates this program on behalf of Sport and Recreation and this integral program saw 25 surf clubs receive funding towards facility upgrades in 2010/11.

NSW DEPARTMENT OF SPORT AND RECREATION Athlete Development Program In 2010/11 Sport and Recreation NSW assisted with a $14,500 grant towards the Country NSW Representative Team. The grant helped our talented Country Athletes by reducing the athlete levy from $750 to $250, while also helping to fund quality presenters, travel and equipment costs. EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT NSW Emergency Volunteer Support Scheme In 2010/11 Emergency Management NSW assisted two key Surf Life Saving NSW programs through the Emergency Volunteer Support Scheme program. The first grant of $84,880 assisted Surf Life Saving NSW with training room and equipment costs at our Belrose headquarters and the second grant of $50,266 was awarded towards a youth recruitment campaign for the 2011/12 season.

GRANTS WORKCOVER NSW – WorkCover Assist Through the WorkCover Assist Work Health and Safety Legislation Training grant, Surf Life Saving NSW was successful with a $123,300 grant towards researching and implementing the new Work Health and Safety legislation changes and the impact this will have on NSW surf clubs. This project will be complete and ready to roll out in 2011/12. JAMES N. KIRBY FOUNDATION The James N. Kirby Foundation provided a $5,000 grant towards our 2011 NSW Lifesaving Exchange Program. This Program takes 25 young patrol captains from regional areas and hosts them at key city surf clubs such as Bondi, Coogee and Maroubra over a long weekend. The purpose of the exchange is to give talented lifesavers from country areas exposure to how large city clubs, with more resources and beachgoers, operate. The city patrol captains then visit selected regional clubs and assist with patrols and new initiatives.

PARTNERSHIPS As a not for profit organisation, Surf Life Saving NSW depends on corporate support to deliver vital lifesaving, education and training programs, to provide financial support to our branches and to deliver outstanding surf sports carnivals. In 2010/11 Surf Life Saving NSW focused on growing our existing partnerships and engaging new partners to assist in new initiatives and support events to make them stronger and more sustainable. We had a successful year in the Partnerships Team with SLSA adding Nikon and Woodside to our National Partners; and Allphones increasing its involvement in Surf Sports to become naming rights sponsor of the Age Championships. Looking forward the Partnerships Team will continue to focus on our current family of partners, while also seeking partners for other programs such as surf education, the IRB Championships and our Rescue of the Month program. 2010/11 Partners: Our partners continue to demonstrate their commitment to our mission, goals and strategic vision and Surf Life Saving NSW is grateful to the following organisations: DHL DHL is the global leader in express, overland transport and air freight and is the world’s number one in ocean freight and contract logistics. DHL supports Surf Life Saving NSW through the provision of patrol uniforms plus cash support to each of the eleven branches in the state. Westpac Westpac is Australia’s first bank opening its doors in 1817. Today Westpac is one of Australia’s largest financial services organisations.

SUPPORT GROUP The 2010/2011 season has seen some major changes to the Support Group team, programs and outcomes delivered to clubs and branches. The end of 2010 saw the departure of Peter James who had led the Support Group since its inception in 2006. Peter had a wealth of knowledge and experience in Surf Life Saving and was instrumental in initiating the Club Development Program and providing direction and assistance to our Support Group as well as to branches and clubs throughout NSW. In 2010 a complete review of the Club Development Program was undertaken by the Support Group, resulting in the development of a revitalised ‘Quality Clubs Program’. This program focuses on best practice operations within all areas of Surf Life Saving, with a heavy focus on recognising clubs which are creating great environments for their members. This program was endorsed by both the SLSNSW State Council and the SLSNSW Board and is the exciting next step in creating strong clubs and healthy branches. The Support Group has utilised the Quality Clubs Program as a tool to identify areas of improvement to work with clubs, with the program enabling club-specific activities to be targeted. These have ranged from developing recruitment campaigns, reviewing patrol rosters, increasing and diversifying communication methods with clubs as well as being a wealth of information for clubs to access.

SLSNSW is committed to assisting clubs to achieve their best

The program consists of simple tick and flick sheets for the bronze, silver and gold levels. Clubs can access these resources via the SLSNSW website, along with resources and templates that can be used to assist the club improve their activities and operations. Each year clubs need to fulfil the requirements of the bronze level, whilst the awarding of silver and gold levels will remain current for a period of two years. The focus on best practice and quality improvements for clubs within NSW is the priority, and SLSNSW is committed to assisting clubs to achieve their best.

In January 2010 Mollymook SLSC was awarded the first Bronze Level Status within the program, showcasing their strength in many areas across NSW. Surf Life Saving NSW State President, Tony Haven was proud to present this recognition to the Mollymook club at the South Coast Branch Meeting and highlighted the successes of the club and the program.

MEMBER SERVICES Surf Life Saving NSW members have worked to create an amazing season, with an increase in membership numbers helping to keep our communities safe.

SIR ADRIAN CURLEWIS SCHOLARSHIP

The 2010/2011 season has seen membership in SLSNSW reach more than 72,000 members, with • 4.4% increase in junior activities memberships. • 2.5% increase in patrolling memberships.

The Sir Adrian Curlewis Scholarship is the pinnacle within the SLSA Leadership Development pathway and this year Katie Dixon from Ocean Beach SLSC was selected as the NSW recipient. Katie completed a year-long project entitled ‘Operation Super Clubbie’ which analysed the workload of volunteer members within SLSNSW, showing that in general, surf lifesavers underestimate their volunteer time contribution. Katie has been an exceptional role model for young leaders in Surf Life Saving and we are proud to have such an outstanding member represent our state.

In August 2010, Surf Life Saving Australia ran an Administration Conference in conjunction with the SLSA Awards of Excellence, with 42 delegates from NSW in attendance. The conference recognised the important role that administrators have to play in our organisation and aimed to provide these people with an opportunity to share their experiences and provide exposure to a range of initiatives that have been, or are being developed to assist administrators in carrying out their duties.

Peer Support Program

This season, Surf Life Saving NSW received a WorkCover NSW grant which enabled us to develop and implement a Peer Support Program to assist members in effectively managing the reactions following Surf Life Saving critical incidents. Working towards an action plan item - Facilitate Member Safety and Wellbeing, SLSNSW has engaged AccessEAP to provide a fast, professional and confidential service to members who have been involved in a critical incident. The costs of these services can often be covered by WorkCover NSW and have been put in place to ensure the wellbeing of our members.

FAR SOUTH COAST

The Far South Coast Branch is the 2010/11 Branch of the Year following one of the most successful Surf Life Saving seasons in its history. Throughout the past 12 months the branch has seen a growth in membership levels, a significant expansion of lifesaving services and a number of outstanding rescues being conducted with 321 lives saved. At the recent SLSNSW Awards of Excellence, we not only took out Branch of the Year, we also won a number of other awards, including: • • •

Facilitator of the Year Michele Bootes – Pambula Outstanding Media Service Andrew Edmunds – Broulee Rescue of the Year, Highly Commended – Batemans Bay/Broulee Rescue of the Year – Tathra

Thanks to our Deputy Director of Lifesaving Andrew Edmunds for his efforts in compiling and lodging our nominations, except his own, and thanks to our Lifesaving Director Mark McCleay and Branch Administrator Kerry Parbery. Our major branch awards were: • • • • • • •

Club Person of the Year Richard Hermans – Moruya Administrator of the Year Fran Elliott – Tathra President’s Award Andrew Edmunds – Broulee Lifesaver of the Year Anthony Bellette – Batemans Bay Branch Person of the Year Tony Rettke - Tathra Male Competitor of the Year Scott Elliott - Broulee Female Competitor of the Year Judy Rettke - Tathra

For the first time in many years we have a corporate sponsor who is assisting us with lifesaving education. Thanks also to the Bega Valley Shire Council and SLSNSW

40 Annual Report 2010/11

for their assistance, in particular to Tony Haven, John Restuccia and our Support Officer Tony Dale. The Eurobodalla Shire surf clubs and the branch lost thousands of dollars in funding when major sponsors withdrew support and channelled funds to the council, after it announced it would cancel paid lifeguard services at many popular locations. Despite this, the clubs took on additional patrolling hours to cover the reduced services provided by the Australian Lifeguard Service. The Far South Coast Branch has been incredibly supportive of the Surf Life Saving NSW Emergency Response System, responding to 28 incidents. All calls were out of hours or away from regular patrolled locations. Our callout crews and duty officers deserve praise for their outstanding efforts. Our surf lifesaving efforts have been complemented by the new Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service, which commenced a three-month operation from December to February. Our volunteers are looking forward to an extended service next season. The 2010/11 season saw a significant increase in the number of incidents, rescues rose to 321 while lifesavers carried out 2502 preventative actions. In a remarkable achievement, the branch was awarded three SLSNSW Rescue of the Month Awards: congratulations to Norm Lenehan from Moruya, Batemans Bay SLSC and Tathra SLSC. For the first time in recent years a combined branch carnival between the South Coast and Far South Coast was held at Broulee. The Far South Coast also sent a team up to the NSW Interbranch Championships and will again next season. Thanks to Davie Law, our Director of Surf Sports for his efforts.

This season Batemans Bay SLSC competed at the IRB State Titles at Woolgoolga, becoming the first Far South Coast team to compete in IRBs in 10 years. Branch community education programs saw Narooma host an indigenous Surf Life Saving development program with teenagers from the Wallaga Lake Area. Pambula yet again conducted its special nippers surf education program, providing disabled locals with an opportunity to enjoy the beach, and learn some surf safety skills. On the education front, the branch has remained fully compliant and some 3041 awards/proficiencies have been awarded. A key member development camp for the Far South Coast is the Wambiri Leadership camp. Every season all clubs from the Far South Coast send 14 nippers to Tathra where vital training takes place and the competencies for the Surf Rescue Certificate are practiced. Wambiri is a great transition from the junior movement to senior patrolling. Members learn vital leadership skills and form very strong bonds and friendships with members their own age from other clubs. The Bermagui SLSC has finally secured an $80,000 grant from council to complete the new clubhouse. Council responded to the amazing efforts made by club members to complete the construction of the building. At the conclusion of my first year as Branch President, I sincerely thank all Branch Directors, our seven clubs and particularly the presidents for their efforts and dedication. Tony Rettke Branch President


SOUTH COAST

In compiling the 2010/11 Branch report for South Coast Branch I have taken great interest in reading the reports of our nine club presidents. These reports provide an interesting insight into the health of our clubs and the great work that is being done by our volunteer surf lifesavers, award members, club and junior activity volunteers. There is no doubt in my mind that South Coast Branch clubs are healthy and well managed due to the commitment and diligence of their members. The provision of our core lifesaving responsibilities on the beaches has again resulted in “no lives lost” between the flags in our patrolled areas. Our volunteer surf lifesavers have been very diligent in their attendance to patrols and training for further lifesaving awards. Our Bronze Medallion training continues to be successful with increasing numbers of new members and SRC candidates undergoing training. Our membership continues to increase, most notably in the junior activities area with the 7-13 years membership growing significantly. There has also been a significant increase in the number of parents of junior members undergoing the Surf Bronze Medallion training and either joining the patrol ranks or becoming involved in the junior activity program in the provision of water safety. During 2010 Surf Life Saving NSW introduced a new scheme titled Quality Clubs Program which provides three levels of recognition to the clubs in NSW – Bronze, Silver and Gold. The first South Coast club to achieve the Bronze level was Mollymook SLSC which has adequately displayed sound management, lifesaving, training and administration of the club along with other achievable goals.

In June 2011 Ivan Johnson of Mollymook SLSC was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in the General Division of the Australian Honours List the Governor General of Australia. Ivan has been a member of Surf Life Saving since joining Black Head SLSC in 1955 and continues today to be actively involved with Mollymook SLSC. Education has had a very busy year in ensuring the integrity of the branch assessment program and the tracking of records in support of our members to validate their SLSA award history in Surfguard. Member Services had a successful year with the South Coast Junior Lifesaver of the Year interviews and selection process, as well as the 2010 Youth Leadership and Development Camp which was held at the start of the season at Killalea Recreation Park at Shellharbour. Surf Sports had a busy season, successfully reintroducing a combined branch carnival with the Far South Coast at Broulee. This was the first combined carnival for many years and it is hoped that this will continue to develop and provide our South Coast and Far South Coast members with an enjoyable surf sports carnival.

The South Coast Branch Centre at Kiama SLSC has continued to be upgraded. The ranks of our volunteer radio operators continue to increase with their membership standing at 18. At the commencement of the 2011/12 season Kiama will handle operational radio coverage of the Far South Coast Branch. The Branch Duty Officers and our Branch Emergency Coordinator Glenn Matthews are to be congratulated in their continuing efforts with providing an out of hours support role to the Police and Emergency Services. Thank you to the South Coast Branch Executive for all of their hard work throughout the season. In closing I extend to all volunteer lifesavers, club volunteers and members my appreciation for your efforts during the last year in ensuring that Surf Life Saving has a strong and relevant future in our communities. For the upcoming season may you continue your contribution through volunteering and providing a valuable rescue service on the beaches and enjoy what Surf Life Saving has to offer. Steve Jones Branch President

The South Coast Interbranch team performed well this season taking home the overall Country pointscore at the Championships. Congratulations to the team, managers and coaches on a job well done.

SYDNEY

The 2010/11 season was another fantastic year for the 15 clubs within Sydney Branch.

This season we note that our rescues were slightly down but our preventative actions we up on the previous season.

This season all clubs were compliant, a great result that came from many hours working with the clubs to get lifesaving service agreements signed for three years.

It is pleasing to record an increase in awards this season with a rise in Bronze Medallions and Surf Rescue Certificates, which means that we have more active members coming into the ranks at club level.

Thank you to all the active club members who gave up their time to protect our beaches during the season. On several occasions during the season patrols were still on the beach at 7.30pm, it is through this fantastic effort that we can record that no lives were lost during patrolling hours. Our support operations group was again kept very busy looking after SurfCom, support jetskis and the Randwick Offshore boat as well as our duty officers who were called upon many times after hours.

On the competition side, we had three open carnivals, a ski marathon, Round 1 of the East Coast Festival, and Open and Age Branch Championships, which were all well attended. Congratulations to the members of the Interbranch team on their outstanding performance at the Championships which saw them take out the overall pointscore by 40 points.

Member development has been a major project that we have been working on for several years and again we conducted an Under 11 Camp, Under 13 Camp, and Under 17 camp for our junior members. This year also saw the introduction of a program to work together with lifeguards from Sutherland Shire Council. Through the success of the program Randwick Council will be coming on board next season. Our Board of Junior Development group has been kept very busy with another increase in the number of nippers. Thanks go to our sponsors for their continued support of the branch. Thanks also to the assistance and support from the 15 clubs that make up Surf Life Saving Sydney.

John C De Cean Branch President We saw the continuation of our clinics and the Emerging Athletes Program which introduced five years ago and now see members becoming involved in other activities.

44 Annual Report 2010/11

More than 1000 members and nonmembers competed in our Ocean Series ski races and most of our clubs ran community ocean swims, which continue to grow in popularity each year.

The role of president is made more enjoyable by having a group of high calibre directors and staff who all share a passion for our organisation and are working together for our future.

Already the largest branch in NSW, our membership has grown to over 18,000 – an increase of 7%. This includes:

Many thanks to Deputy President David Murray, Director of Rescue Services Steve Faddy, Director of Education, Michael Wasley, Director of Surf Sports Ross Tester, Director of Youth and Membership Services Glenn Langley, Director of Finance and Administration Phil Cullis and Director of Sponsorship and Marketing Alan Mason. The amount of time and devotion these members put into our organisation is truly amazing – and I believe not fully appreciated.

Over 7300 patrolling members Around 9000 youth members (18 years and under) Around 7000 females It is very interesting to see our members: Were called upon to rescue one person for every 2000 beach goers Watched over more than 500 beach goers per patrolling member Gained one “patrolling” award for every two patrolling members Financially we had a strong year delivering a consolidated profit of $57,319 even after moving into our own education and administration building. We would not be able to offer the quality and level of service to the community without the support of our business partners. On behalf of all our members I would l thank our sponsors for their continued support. Thanks to the directors and staff of Surf Life Saving Australia and to Tony Haven, Phil Vanny and the directors and staff of Surf Life Saving New South Wales for your guidance and direction.

Finally, once again, I would like to thank all our surf lifesavers for their amazing commitment and passion shown year after year. Thank you also to the partners and families who support them. Gordon Lang Branch President


CENTRAL COAST

The professionalism of the Central Coast Surf Life Saving clubs has once again been outstanding in 2010/11. Congratulations on a wonderful season of lifesaving service to the Central Coast community. The new initiatives that are being shown in all portfolios indicates that the membership of the Central Coast is leading the way for Surf Life Saving in Australia. These initiatives have led to the organisation gaining greater access to funding, increased support from the public and contributed to our third successive Surf Life Saving NSW ‘Branch of the Year’ title.

HUNTER

At the completion of the 93rd season for the Hunter Branch, our clubs have gone from strength to strength, our membership, our professionalism and the respect in the community for our lifesavers is humbling to say the least. I pay tribute to the lifesavers who patrol our beaches, the patrol captains who organise their members, the club presidents and club executives who in turn organise and run the clubs, and our sponsors and supporters, without whom the clubs and branch could not provide the necessary for training and the equipment needed to perform rescues and complete patrols. This season has seen some remarkable advancement for our branch. The branch membership currently stands at almost 7000 and our patrolling members completed 59,000 hours of voluntary patrols. We are pleased to say there were “no lives lost on our patrolled beaches”, our members performed 265 rescues, 11,000 preventative actions, 1996 first aid treatments and watched over 670,000 visitors to our beaches. Since the commencement of the state-wide Emergency Response System in 2008, we have completed 45 call outs with 15 this season. These are callouts outside normal patrol hours and are handled initially by one of five Duty Officers. The clubs’ utilisation of the SurfCom radio network has grown substantially over the last two years and we now wonder how we ever did without this valuable communications facility. I congratulate the clubs on accepting this advancement in communication so rapidly, and the expert guidance of the Central Coast SurfCom team.

Another of our successes is the rookie program, a course which aims to keep our newest lifesavers engaged and confident in their abilities. The program teaches the rookies additional skills and enhances their fitness while actively involving them on patrols. In the area of surf sports, the branch hosted the East Coast Surf Festival and enjoyed some great results from Hunter athletes. Stockton also hosted the Australian Surf Rowers League National Selection Carnival. Our branch team came a creditable fourth at the NSW Interbranch titles and some of our athletes were selected for the state team. Many of our members competed at the Australian titles, winning a total of 55 medals. At the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships, our members brought home 171 medals. Hunter Branch officials acted as referees, water safety and gear stewards at the State Titles and conducted water safety at the Australian titles. Our support operations team has had another busy year with four new operators gaining their award and another dozen or so are still in training. Our branch has been involved in night time IRB operations training and we now have members who are capable of delivering the course where appropriate.

One of the more interesting stories of the season is the Caves Beach SLSC implementing a program for children with special needs, with disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and hearing impairment. The program provided each child with basic surf awareness and sun safety education, while allowing them to be physically The education arm of the branch gained active in a safe and caring environment. The childrens’ self esteem was enhanced 11,011 Awards over the period and we passed the audit with 100% compliance, as they participated in beach and as did the Cooks Hill SLSC. Our facilitators, water activities and felt part of the surf lifesaving community. I congratulate assessors and trainers have worked Aaron Morris and Caves Beach SLSC for tirelessly to qualify members. this wonderful program.

46 Annual Report 2010/11

Again we reached more than 10,000 school students with our Community Education program, now in its 14th year. In January we ran the annual ‘Ducks 4 Dollars’ event, which raised in excess of $60,000, which went directly back to clubs and the Rescue Helicopter service. Nobbys SLSC raised another $12,000 for essential rescue equipment. Celebrations for the Cooks Hill SLSC 100th Anniversary began in January and finished in May, reaching many past and present members to celebrate this great milestone. Thanks to Newcastle City Council and the Crown Lands department, a coastal management plan has been drafted for the 11 kms of coastline in Newcastle. Included in the plan is the replacement of and extensive renovations to the clubhouses in the area. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our branch executives, who have done a wonderful job in their respective portfolios. The people behind the Executive are our wonderful staff and volunteers who assist with administrating every aspect of the branch functions. To the staff of SLSNSW, I commend your work - to the Executive of SLSNSW I thank you for your support. We look forward to 2011/12, our 94th season, with enthusiasm. Henry Scruton Branch President


LOWER NORTH COAST

The Lower North Coast Branch has once again had an exceptional season. Even though we are a small regional branch we have the potential to do extraordinary things. Our education programs play a key part in the development of not only our members, but also the local community. Over the last 10 years, the branch has progressed to reach and maintain a significant level of compliance with regards to external requirements such as WorkCover NSW and the AQTF. A senior development and education program has been established, offering club executive members the opportunity to upgrade their skills in administration and beach management. Community education programs have also been established with regional schools, community clubs, seniors groups, Koori groups, junior holiday programs and emergency service organisations. The continuation of our community education programs are extremely important and are made possible through the support of our major sponsors. The branch and our clubs are in good shape financially and will enter the season in the capable hands of our new Finance Director Brett Willing. All Lower North Coast clubs have achieved Bronze status in the Quality Club Program and some are starting on their Silver level accreditation. Well done to the team of assessors, facilitators and trainers who have achieved 100% compliance. Our surf sports athletes have done the branch proud this season. Congratulations to Black Head SLSC which took out the Senior Branch Championships with Forster winning the Junior Branch Championships.

Support Operations has had a major boost this season due to the clubs’ commitment to supporting the service. This means we are now able to respond to incidents and emergencies beyond our normal patrol areas. The Duty Officer and Emergency Response program has gone from strength to strength. Well done to the Support Operations Team. The trial of Emergency Response Beacons at Crowdy Head and North One Mile Beach has been a success and the beacons will remain in place next season. Some clubs are also considering extending patrol hours with the potential for some metropolitan clubs to assist with resources. Another significant project was the Forster Bar jetski - thank you to the Masons Charities and their commitment to raise $16,000 toward the venture. Well done to Julie and Brian Wilcox for their consistent effort to get the project operational. I would like to commend our junior members who were nominated for the Junior Lifesaver of the Year award. Special congratulations to Laura Bawden and William Squires who were our overall male and female winners. These members are the future of surf lifesaving in our branch.

The Lower North Coast Junior Camp is still receiving accolades. Thanks to our two facilitators Adrian Futterleib and Brett Tyrpenou. The Club of the Year program has been instigated within the branch. Thank you to Andrew Jones for his help with formulating the criteria. Sponsorship for the program has been secured. The Nipper of the Week award is also a great hit with our young members. I would like to extend a big thank you to all our sponsors for your generous support. Thanks must also go to the Great Lakes and Greater Taree councils for their ongoing support. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Branch Executive who have constantly stepped up to give so much advice and assistance to our clubs. Thank you to the club executives and support officers for their help throughout the season. I take this opportunity to praise those members for their outstanding efforts.

Phil Spicer Branch President

Member Services activities are progressing well - the Golf Day and inaugural Fishing Day were both successful. The 2010 Club Conference last August was a huge success and was supported by input from John Restuccia and Brent Manieri from Surf Life Saving NSW. Thanks also to Julie and Brian Wilcox for coordinating the event.

MID NORTH COAST

Once again the Mid North Coast Branch recorded another successful season. It seems that there is no off season and our members were kept busy with, education, support operations and competition. Our President Dennis O’Sullivan was unfortunately taken ill in December and is going through a recovery process. Notwithstanding, the guiding principles and aims of the branch which he had put into place were continued. Dennis O’Sullivan was awarded Life Membership of SLSNSW and has been involved with the Mid North Coast for the past 20 years. During this time Dennis has held many positions on the Branch’s Committee including; Club Supervisor, Secretary, Vice President and for the past 10 years has been the MNC Branch President. Patrols were conducted professionally throughout the branch and in most cases strengthened from last year with an extension of hours. The seas

48 Annual Report 2010/11

were not often all that kind during the season and many rescues were performed. Unfortunately we did have two drownings in the Port Macquarie area at Shelly Beach out of patrol hours. This highlights the need to increase our education as people don’t always swim at regular hours in flagged areas. The MNC Support Officers were first on the scene to these call outs and located the victims. This group has attended several call outs this season and the emergency response in the branch is now well structured, with a core group of Duty Officers and RWC operators. Our juniors had an enormous season. Several carnival and youth leadership camps were held which were well patronised and enjoyed by all. We have some quality members and this was reflected by the selection of Emily Davidson and Henry Panaifex as NSW Junior Lifesavers of the Year, an outstanding achievement not only for these future lifesavers but also for the branch.

Education is a strong focus within the branch under the management of Kim Rayner and large numbers of awards were given. Our competition throughout the season was healthy, several carnivals and events such as ocean swims and craft carnivals were conducted and our competitors attended all major carnivals. South West Rocks SLSC held the Stramit NSW Country Championships which was very successful. The North Coast Boat Series had a bumper year and rowers have supported the Mid North Coast Branch events. My thanks to our generous supporters who have assisted the branch to operate. Thanks to all the clubs and SLSNSW for their support during this busy but enjoyable season. Rod McDonagh Acting Branch President


NORTH COAST

The 2010/2011 season was another very busy one for all the clubs and volunteer surf lifesavers who patrolled, keeping our beaches safe. We sincerely thank them all. Prior to the beginning of the season, there were many courses held, including a Patrol Captains’ and Presidents’ meeting to finalise the introduction of three year patrol agreements. A Level One Officials Course was also held. In August we hosted a Duty Officers Conference at Coffs Harbour, which was well attended by all clubs. Branch representatives also attended the National Administration Conference held in Sydney. This was a very informative and innovative event which benefitted everyone who attended. This was followed in September with a Surfguard Forum, where participants received instruction in the technical aspects of using the Surfguard database. An Age Managers Course was also conducted in October, with more than 50 eager participants taking part. In December we were introduced to the new Ballina SurfCom radio network, which was rolled out during the season. Lifesaving officers from SLSNSW conducted a Branch Duty Officers’ Conference, inducting members into the first part of the Rescue Water Craft (jetski) qualifications with the aim of forming a support service in the branch. The number of courses and conferences held so early in the season shows the dedication and willingness of our members to embrace new and improved technologies to enhance their lifesaving capabilities. We are grateful to all our sponsors and supporters. Without their contributions the branch would struggle to conduct programs to support our clubs. Other ways in which we acknowledged the efforts of our members included the “Nipper of the Week” which appeared in the Coffs Coast Advocate and our Awards of Excellence.

The Telstra Countrywide campaign was embraced by the Coffs Harbour Telstra Shop at Park Beach Plaza which held special fundraising events to promote surf life saving. The money raised allowed the clubs to purchase vital lifesaving equipment. The Employment Training Company (ETC) came on board as a branch sponsor for the season, donating Mercury outboard engines, rescue boards, binoculars, rash vests and sun caps, which were distributed to clubs in the branch. The annual Junior Development Camp was conducted in November at the Nambucca Heads SLSC. Our thanks go to Jim McCullagh and his helpers who made the camp such an enjoyable experience for our Under 14 members, who we hope will continue onto the senior club and become valuable patrolling members. The North Coast Branch team attended the Interbranch Titles on the Central Coast in December. Our competitors performed well with the beach competitor results improving significantly this year. All competitors were a credit to the branch and looked great in their Branch uniforms. All clubs from the branch competed at the Stramit NSW Country Championships at South West Rocks with some good results recorded. It is great to see our clubs support the Country Championships, which is the highlight of competition for many of our regional competitors. The NSW Surf Life Saving Championships at Kingscliff were well attended by competitors from the branch, with some excellent results. The Under 14 Female Beach Sprint Relay team from Sawtell made it back to back wins - a fantastic feat for the four girls. They followed this up by gaining a silver medal at the Australian Championships in the Under 15 Female Beach Sprint Relay. Another surprise was Isabella Underhill and Lauren Dam from this team reaching the final eight of the Under 15 Flags, with Lauren ending

up with a bronze medal. It was a family affair for the Burgess girls with them both winning a silver medal at the Australian Championships. Woolgoolga competitors were not to be outdone with their Masters competitors coming to the fore. Ken Cook won the 70+ Surf Race and scored a third place in the 70+ Rescue Tube Race. Rebecca Wright gained a second place in the 30-34 Flags as well as a third place in the 30-34 Beach Sprint, while Jim McCullagh came second in the 50+ 2km Run. During the 2010/2011 season our members contributed 25, 000 voluntary patrol hours on the Clarence, Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Shire beaches. This contribution is a significant and valuable resource to the community. Developing our trainers and assessors continues to improve due to the diligence of our retiring Education Officer Jamie Marschke and Judy Spicer from SLSNSW. We thank them both for a job well done. Jayne Morrison (Director of Lifesaving) and Wayne Scott (Director of Surf Sports) have continued to put many hours of work into making the branch’s activities run smoothly. Mick Carah has also done an admirable job guiding the Junior Activities and Member Services portfolio for the branch. Sadly, Pat Beavis is retiring as Treasurer this year. After seven years at the helm of all things financial, I personally am very sorry to see her retire and on behalf of the branch, thank her for the amazing work she has done over the years. John Wake from Coffs Harbour SLSC received his Life Membership after many years of dedicated work to the branch. Finally congratulations to all members on the many achievements gained throughout the season and thanks again for all your hard work. I wish all clubs and members the best for a very enjoyable and successful season in 2011/12. Kerry Clancy Branch President

Paul Smith, Belinda Camp, and all the youth leaders are to be congratulated. John Watson was awarded the NSW Federation of Sport, Long Service award. At the NSW Championships at Kingscliff Con Asmussen, John Watson, John Beasley, Keith Kennedy and Gordon McNaughton were presented with 50year plus Officiating Awards. The appointment of Greg Clark as our Director of Finance has assisted with the development of complete and professional financial reporting. The quality of the rescues performed throughout the season and the proficiency and dedication of the surf lifesavers on our beaches was outstanding. The branch would like to acknowledge the support of the public and community and in particular the continued financial involvement of our major sponsors. My personal thanks and appreciation is extended to all Far North Coast clubs, the Branch Council and the hardworking Executive for their support and commitment to a great cause - Surf Life Saving.

FINANCE REPORT It is my pleasure to present the audited Balance Sheet and Financial Statement of Surf Life Saving New South Wales (“SLSNSW”), and its controlled entities for the twelve months ending 30th June 2011. SLSNSW produced a surplus of $935,118 which was well down on the prior year result $2,128,059. This decline of $1,192,941 (56%) is due to revenue increasing by only 2% or $303,595, whilst expenditure increased 11% or $1,501,536. Management is acutely aware this mismatch between revenue and expenditure growth is unsustainable in the longer term, and measures continue to be taken to both grow revenue and minimise expenditure growth. In this way we will ensure SLSNSW can maximise services to both the community and its members into the future. Factors influencing the result during the year included: • First year of owning/ operating new Belrose premises (additional running costs and reduced investments) • Movement of State titles to the Far North Coast (Kingscliff) leading to increased travel and associated carnival expenditure. The new location also had an effect on carnival entries, thus carnival revenue • Non receipt of any significant gifts/donations in 2011 • Changes to public holidays (Lifeguard staff costs) • Continued global economic uncertainty and increase in natural disasters - impacting on fundraising. Service provision revenue grew 14% to now make up 41% of overall revenue (up from 38% in 2010). However other revenue categories experienced only single digit or negative growth for the reasons mentioned above. Reclassifications associated with the adoption of the Standard Chart of Account for Not for Profit organisations, as recommended by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), at the start of the year have impacted some of the comparisons. Expenditure was also impacted by the factors above with growth across all areas; Core Activities 13% (Lifesaving & Lifeguards, Member Services & Support, Training & Education and Surf Sports), Fundraising 8%, Grants 8% and Administration 10%. Administration as a proportion of total expenditure increased from 17% to 18% of revenue, still well within generally accepted Not for Profit practices (<25%). The rise in staff costs of 8% associated with CPI, performance, additional staff most relating to successful grant applications and additional lifeguard personnel, increased public holidays being a major driver in all areas. Staff costs as always will continue to be carefully scrutinised. The total distribution to clubs and branches was $3,826,631 ($3,556,006 in 2010) an 8% increase. This will probably fall back in 2011/12 as fundraising received via the Surf Life Saving Foundation was down $273K during the year, which will have a direct impact on distributions to clubs and branches.

The total distribution to clubs and branches was $3,826,631 an 8% increase

As always I would like to give special thanks to our corporate partners DHL, Westpac, Telstra, Allphones and Stramit Building Products and our government and philanthropic supporters including the NSW Government, Federal Government, Australian Sports Commission and Departments of Communities Sport & Recreation, Emergency Management NSW, Workcover NSW and James N. Kirby Foundation. In closing I would like to thank the finance team and my fellow directors for their assistance and support during the year while I have been incapacitated for much of it. In particular the finance team Ross Bidencope, Rebecca Churchill, Emily Barrett (to April) Caroline Tremble (from April) Barry Seymour, Graham Lees (to January) and Rosa Vasile (from February).
