We know during these difficult times of COVID 19 it has had a major effect on our lives. Many of us are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming, and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Good mental health and wellbeing allows you to live your life in a positive and meaningful way and cope with life’s changes and challenges.

Youth News

Livelighter Paddle Challenge
On Sunday 13th June, a group of Youth paddlers completed their first race, the Livelighter Paddle Challenge.  Huge Congratulations to our intrepid Youth Ski Squad that did us proud on Sunday!! Well done all.
The morning kicked off in the dark with the trailer and crew arriving just after 6am. Like a well oiled machine the youth, mentors, parents and coaches quickly unpacked the trailer, registered and were ready to race. There were a few nerves at the outset being lined up on the river in starting grids. The 9 club skis lined up looked particularly awesome. Seeing the likes of the K3 and K2’s power off the line provided a whole new insight into paddling and flat water racing on a 6km out and back course.
With the Sorento group all finishing within 7min of each other it was a great tactical race. Kai Belmont took out 4th Junior Male in the 6km & Lani Baxter 2nd Junior Female. Congrats Kai & Lani.
With Race #1 of the 6 race series for Youth Development Squad completed we move back to our home beach for the next 5 races of the series. More information to come shortly on Registration for Race #2, this will be the Short Course of the Indian Ocean Paddlers Winter Race.
Race Location: Sorrento SLSC
Checkin: 6am, Saturday 19th June
Race Start: 7am
This race will be free to Youth and we are just working through registration details and will send these through soon.

Woodside Nippers

On Saturday evening I had the honor and pleasure to receive the Woodside Nipper Club of the Year award on behalf of our awesome team. It will be soon hanging in the club for all of our members to admire. 
Unfortunately, I was unable to take the whole team to the night because it’s so huge but  we had a good representation.
I somehow had the microphone for a few minutes on the night and neglected to speak about the awesome team we have at Sorrento the hard work from all our Senior Age Managers, Assistant Age Managers, Coaches, Water Safety, our families, our set up and pack up crew and ourBBQ volunteers. Without all of your involvement this would not have been possible so I thank you all in the role you play.
It’s really important that we are all proud of our achievement because it’s taken a huge amount of work to get here.
We are the Woodside Nipper Club of the Year!!!!!!!!!
The biggest thank you is to our wonderful Nippers, the way you have all embraced the mighty green machine and the commitment to testing yourselves and having a crack at all age groups on Sunday's mornings and throughout the week at our many training sessions is inspiring. 
Congratulations to Ron Morris for receiving the presidents award for his commitment to surf and our club and to Garry Bunford for the Official of the year!
I’d also like to acknowledge our other club finalists on the night your all winners in our eyes!
