We hosted our annual Sponsors Thank You evening on Friday. It was an evening of gratitude & celebration of our community and an opportunity for our sponsors to meet our members and understand where their resources are used by the club
And one of them is our very own club member, Jennifer Cook!
We are very proud of Jennifer for her recent appointment as an Independent Director with Surf Life Saving Australia. Well done!!

Posted @withrepost • @randwickcouncil We were very excited to present these annual donation cheques to our four local surf clubs (Clovelly, Coogee, Maroubra and South Maroubra) and the Surf Life Saving Randwick Offshore Rescue Boat Association at last night's Sports Awards! Bryce Wilde, from Clovelly Surf Lifesaving Club spoke on behalf of the surf clubs as district chair.
A donation cheque was also presented to Shane Daw ESM, Chairman of the Westpac Helicopter Service as part of Council’s ongoing joint sponsorship of the Surf Life Saving NSW rescue helicopter.
Thanks to all for keeping us safe!

GREAT NIGHT FOR THE TWO BLUES!!!
It was a privilege to be in attendance at the Randwick Council sporting excellence awards for the Coogee SLSC and Coogee Minnows, which was a fantastic night with the Two Blues represented in all but 1 category.
Large contingent of club members there to support our 7 finalist in Ethan Costa, Ashton Habler, Margaret & Kathryn Jordan, Bronte Bloxsom and Aislinn Walsh-Sams (Junior and Youth Athletes) and Chris Gately (Coach of the Year).
Huge congratulations to all our nominations and particularly both Ethan and Margaret who won in their relevant Junior Sports Awards.
Shout out also to Heather Hawkins, who was one of the 4 judges involved in this process, for her time putting her hand up for the role (especially considering she is only just back in country from climbing Cholo Peak).
It was a really enjoyable evening for all and credit to Mayor Dylan Parker & Randwick Council for holding these awards and their continual support of surf lifesaving.
A small board riding team from Coogee represented the club two weekends ago up at Merewether beach for the 2022 State Surfboard Riding Championships. The team consisted of a small number of groms including Angus Folsom, George Messiter, Lachie Hume, Will Waugh and Finn Wilkie, as well as Joey Mison competing for Era.
Kicking off the day Lachie Hume surfed in the U14/15s Male Shortboard event. With not much time to suss out the conditions the boys were straight out onto the second bank getting right handers just right of the surf club. These kids whilst still young were no mere novices in the water taking off on 3ft to 4fters in front of the rocks like it was their local break. Lachie squeezed in two waves back-to-back before the bell but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to make it through. A very tough competition even coming up against a sponsored surfer, a good effort from Lach.
Following up, the U13’s with George and Gus both making it through to the final Gus even winning his heat against four other surfers! George and Gus in the final battling it out against the four other finalists they surf on the main bank out front. With the main bank shutting down a lot more than the secondary bank it was all about wave selection. George picking off the good ones took out the Gold for Coogee, Gussie just missing a medal with some tough scores from the judges but great surfing from both the boys nonetheless.
For the rest of the boys, Will, Finn and Joe competed later in the day in the U17s/U19s heats. All the boys surfing extremely well all making it to the semi’s but only Wilkie scraping through to final. The final was neck and neck between Finn and his rival from North Cronulla to win the Gold but Finn ultimately came out on top and took home the win for Coogee! Joe Mison went on to compete up an age group in the Opens and also scored a Gold bringing that one down the hill for Era!
A truly impressive day of surfing from all the crew and big thanks to all the support from the people there on the day as well as the crew back home following the event throughout the day. See you out in the surf. Yew!
