SLSMNC Newcastle Permanent Junior Lifesaver of the Year 2020/21.

Seven U/14 representatives from Clubs across the Mid North Coast Branch come together for Junior Lifesaver of the Year interviews on January 30th 2021.

Representing their Clubs were Taylah Moffitt Kempsey-Crescent Head, Lily Barlow Port Macquarie, Cooper Lorger Port Macquarie, Annelise Turner Tacking Point, Tyse Thrower Tacking Point, Raina Anderson Wauchope-Bonny Hills and Tim Broderick Wauchope Bonny Hills SLSC.

Having been through a selection process at their own Club, they progressed to the SLSMNC Branch interviews as finalists in this season’s Newcastle Permanent Junior Lifesaver of the Year (JLOTY) program.

The MNC Branch selection panel this year consisted of Sue Croad (Hat Head SLSC), Leanne Goggin (Wauchope-Bonny Hills) and Gary Hawkins (SLMNC Director of Member Services). Each finalist participated in a face to face interview held at the Branch Office where a male and a female were selected.

The winners were announced by Newcastle Permanent’s Adam Power and SLSMNC Branch President Rod McDonagh at the MNC Branch Championships on 14th February in front of Life Members, Branch Executive and competitors.

Congratulations go to our Surf Lifesaving Mid North Coast Newcastle Permanent Junior Lifesavers of the Year for 2020/21 Taylah Moffitt and Cooper Lorger.

Both Taylah and Cooper will now progress to the SLSNSW JLOTY Development Program to be held in Collaroy in April, vying for the SLSNSW JLOTY title for 2020/21 season.

Good luck to you both and thankyou to the finalists for their participation in the JLOTY program this year.
