National Volunteer Week

During this National Volunteer week (and every week!) Royal Lifesaving extends a huge thank you to all volunteers who work tirelessly to contribute to the success of so many different aspects of our organisation.

More specifically, volunteers are the heart and soul of Pool Lifesaving Sport. From timekeepers to technical judges, marshals to managers, every volunteer plays a crucial role in the development of the sport and the success of competitions.

Earlier this month, Mingara Lifesaving Club facilitated the 2024 Branch Pool Rescue Development Clinic for Surf Life Saving members on the Central Coast. Tom Simpson and Robbie Wait, both valuable members of Royal Life Saving NSW and integral parts of Mingara Lifesaving Club, were pivotal in the organisation and execution of the day’s activities. Tom and Robbie brought together a team of experienced coaches, who generously volunteered their time to put on a coaching masterclass for those eager to develop their skills in Pool Lifesaving events.

Pool Lifesaving sport relies heavily on the unwavering support of volunteers like Tom and Robbie, who continue to impress with their eagerness to share their knowledge and expertise. Their commitment to the sport is holds immeasurable value for the Royal Life Saving organisation, fostering the growth of younger generations of athletes and continuing to build the sport from a grassroots level.

Our volunteers will be in action helping to facilitate the NSW Pool Lifesaving Championships on the 14-16th June at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.  To buy tickets and find out more about this event, click the image below:
