Time to have Your SayCalling on all Members and guests and friends of South Port SLSC!  Please follow the link below and vote for our Youth Retention Program. You will need to register, but the program with the most votes will win. It's a wonderful opportunity to gain much needed funds for our club. Thanks to all who can assist.

You can register and vote for our Youth Retention Program by clicking HERE

Benefit to the region
An increase in residents with emergency service training supported through the local community education programs will enhance the preparedness for disaster and avoid potential loss of life. The engagement and retention of youth in the community will improve the clubs ability to respond to rescue situations and deliver a higher standard of service during patrols.
 
The impact of this program will lead to improved morale and retention of our youth, and develop and increase enthusiasm to continue to serve the local community.
 
How it will happen
The grant will be spent entirely on recruiting and retaining youth members; with a commitment to education and training. This will ensure the delivery of emergency services and community services in the local community. Such activities include: Surf Rescue Certificates and Bronze Medallion, as well as camps and social activities to promote team bonding and community spirit.
 

YourSay is an initiative of the SA Government, bringing the community’s voice into Government decision-making.   The voting period is open until 5pm, Monday 11 May 2015.

Mid Coast Surfing ReserveSouth Port is now part of the Mid Coast Surfing Reserve!  We would like to thank members and the general public for their support to get this proposal accepted.

Surfing Reserves are 'iconic' places of recreational, environmental, historic, sporting and cultural value to the region. They aim at protecting surf breaks, reefs areas, cliff faces, etc.

After a public meeting, a steering committee was formed to look at dedicating the Mid Coast area as a Surfing Reserve.

Representatives on the committee include:
Chairperson: Sue Bennett Local surfer, resident, SA School Surfing President.
Vice Chairperson: Michael Nieuwendijk Local surfer and resident.
Secretary: Dick (Olly) Olesinski Surf Life Saving SA, South Port SLSC and resident.
Committee members:
Chris Warren Surfing SA and local surfer.
Bill Jamieson City of Onkaparinga and resident.
Rick Dabrow Local surfer and resident.
Corey Jackson SurfRider Foundation, local surfer and resident.
Steve Francis Local surfer and resident.
Chris Lemar Local surfer, Boardriding Club member and resident.
Ellen Watson Local surfer, youth representative and resident.

The steering committee have come up with directions to gain the surfing and aquatic community’s support to dedicate the Mid as a Surfing Reserve.

They include the following aims and objectives.

The Mid Coast Surfing Reserve recognises the uniqueness of the Mid Coast as a surfing and aquatic environment, the relationship of the whole aquatic community with the Mid Coast and the need to establish it as a stakeholder within the region.

Objectives of the Mid Coast Surfing Reserve focus on:

  • Celebrating the Mid’s surfing heritage and culture;
  • Ensuring a safe aquatic and beach environment;
  • Protecting the environment, and
  • Supporting Council’s Coastal Park initiatives.

The National Surfing Reserve Board recently voted unanimously to accept a submission from the Mid Coast Surfing Reserve Steering Committee and welcomed the Mid Coast as Australia’s first regional surfing reserve.

The Mid Coast Surfing Reserve aims to assist with managing and protecting the environmental, cultural, economic and social characteristics of an area from Christie Creek in the north to Pedler Creek, Moana in the south.

One of the main aspects that South Port members will relate to will be the celebration and recognition of surf sites in our area including the Hump, Rivermouth, Rincon and Snakes.

Thanks to all members who signed the community consultation form as that support certainly helped in the Mid being accepted as a surfing reserve.

A dedication will be held within the next 12 months and if you want any further information, see Olly.
