Port Dou­glas Surf Life­sav­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - JOIN A CLUB -

PORT Dou­glas Surf Life Sav­ing be­gan in 1983 with seven vol­un­teer mem­bers.

In the years fol­low­ing, mem­ber­ship was in­creased and in 1993 the first Nip­pers (aged 6 to 14 years) joined the club.

Last sea­son we had mem­ber­ship of 240 in­clud­ing 97 Nip­pers.

The Nip­per pro­gram is the most im­por­tant sec­tion of our club.

The ma­jor­ity of our mem­bers’ time and club re­sources are di­rected to­wards the man­age­ment and train­ing of our Nip­pers. The Nip­pers are the fu­ture of the club. Our mem­bers mainly come from through­out the Dou­glas Shire and some hail from the Tablelands and Cairns. With mem­bers rang­ing in age from 5 to 73 and com­ing from all facets of life it is a com­mu­nity-based fam­ily club.

Come along to our open day, March 30, and see what it’s all about.
