The HSLSC Juniors were back in action last Saturday, 6th January with a morning session due to the extreme heat. Thank you to those club members who are volunteering their time as Water Cover for our sessions, despite having no children in the program.
Western Branches Interclub Event
This Sunday, 14th January our club will host all Under 6s to Under 15s from North Haven, Semaphore, Grange and West Beach. This has been a big event to organise – thank you to all who have contributed to the planning. Feel free to come along and help out with Water Cover if you have a spare couple of hours – 9 til 11am.
Junior Carnival 2 – Glenelg
The Henley Juniors were again out in force for Carnival 2, with a huge team of 60 competitors! We are so proud to see the kids giving their all and wearing the Henley colours with pride.
Junior Carnival 3 – Normanville
The final Junior Interclub Carnival for the season is on Sunday, 11th February at Normanville. This carnival is always enjoyable, so we’re hoping to have another big contingent of Henley competitors. It is worth noting that children need to participate in at least 1 Junior Intercub Carnival for the season to qualify for State Titles. This has been a club policy for a long time, but is now an SLSSA pre-requisite. Junior Carnival Photography
We would love to have some more photos of our competitors at carnivals. If anyone has a decent camera with zoom and would like to gain SLSSA Media Clearance, please let me know. Media Clearance will give you access into the competition arena so you can get right up close to the action. Parents are not permitted to photograph their children, so it would be fantastic to fill this position.
Surf Life Saving SA is seeking someone from within the movement (who is familiar with the surf lifesaving landscape and season) to fill this role which is responsible for growth, innovation, sustainability and development of surf sports in South Australia.
Please contact Sita Bacher for more details on; 0429 865 468 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paul Leonard (club Chief Instructor) and Mark Travers (long time club Treasurer) recently visited the gym to complete the gym induction, which is basically safety, hygiene and common sense.
This is a club requirement if you intend working out in the gym and it only takes 15 mins or so, plus whatever questions you need answered about using any of the equipment. Did you know, when doing your bronze the induction can be done by your trainer, which then allows access to the gym under supervision.
There is some new equipment in the gym. Two sets of heavier dumbbells 30kgs and 35kgs and a new hexbar for deadlifts which has a closer grip than the old one, making it suitable for female athletes in particular.
The gym area is running the BBQ on the morning of the Australia Day Swim. The ‘Tong Master’ Barrie Cole is making a comeback for the day so come along, say hello and have an egg and bacon roll while watching the swim.
The Surf Life Saving Foundation will be running the ‘Be a Lifesaver’ campaign over the Australia Day long weekend (Friday 26th to Sunday 29th Jan between 8am – 5pm) which will include Face to Face fundraising at Henley Beac. This will involve fundraisers walking the Square and foreshore collecting money via Tap-n-Go and cash buckets. They are inviting Henley SLSC to participate, with all cash donations collected by our members being allocated directly to our club.
This is a great opportunity for any competitors or crews travelling interstate for competition or Aussies to raise funds towards your travel expenses under our 80/20 fundraising policy
HET camp has been and gone for another year. We had to move our camp this year, due to the renovations at Chiton Rocks SLSC and were able to find suitable lodgings at the Goolwa Scout Hall on the river. This year we had 30 youth attend and 8 parent helpers.
We arrived Friday night and set ourselves up. Next morning we were up bright and early and off to Middleton Beach for the day. Our friends Matthew Coorey and Joey Loeilo met us at Middleton on the Rescue Watercraft and provided excellent water cover and quite a few joy rides out the back.
Lunch was on the beach and then we had visits from Bruce Rankin, and Roy Menner, Kate and Bruce the Labrador.
Back to camp and after dinner, expertly cooked by the girls, we had team games which were organised by Ed Gates and were a lot of fun. Team Parents were obviously awesome at the Games but due to biased scoring did not come away with the win.
Sunday morning saw another quick wave session and then it was back home to Adelaide with some weary travellers (and parent helpers also)
Jet Boat Visit
On Saturday 16/12/17 We also managed to score a visit from the Jet Boats with Chris Fuller helping out as crew. SLSSA are always keen to come and bring the rescue craft out to the clubs and demonstrate its capabilities and show the members that there are varying pathways within lifesaving that maybe they weren’t aware of.
Het returned from Christmas Break last Saturday but due to the heat it was a morning session.
This week we have a Sunday session due to the Western Beaches Branch Day#2 but will return to our regular Saturday timeslot of 12:45pm on the 20th.

– DON’T BE A CHOCKER! –
Just a reminder that members are not to ‘chock’ open the front door. Anyone using facilities should have a fob to access the club. ‘Guests’ are not permitted to use the gym and will be asked to leave. Please don’t put yourselves or your friends in that embarrassing situation!
Also, leaving the door ajar presents a security issue, putting members using facilities & property at risk.
CLUB CLOTHING APPROVAL
A reminder to all members, that all club apparel and merchandise must be approved by the Board of Management (BOM).
This applies to all areas of the club, including; Juniors, competition clothing and general member clothing.
The club has strict rules about clothing colour and design, so no orders should be made without prior approval from the BOM.
If you have specific clothing and merchandise requests, please contact our club Clothing Manager, Megan Tudor, in the first instance.
Kevin passed away, unexpectedly on the 22nd December 2017.
Kevin was a previous member of HSLSC who gained his bronze medallion during the 1963–64 season, and being an excellent swimmer, immediately became a part of the junior R & R team. That team was undefeated and went on to win the State Title.
As a senior he then became a member of the senior R & R which had success for many years afterwards.
In later years Kevin has played an essential part in each of the “Big Rows”, our club’s major annual fundraiser.
Kevin donated his time and resources to the event, with the use of his boat, the ‘Time Out’. His assistance has enabled the event to run each year for the past 11 seasons, with Kevin only missing one event when he had an achilles injury. His support was greatly appreciated by the club,
He will be sadly be missed by all past and present members.
