The Binningup Surf Lifesaving Club held its award presentations for this season recently — COVID-19 style.

Club president Julie Doyle said all young members of the Woodside Nippers program had a fantastic summer.

“Each year the club’s age managers are asked to select one person who has been striving to achieve the best of their ability, show good sportsmanship and participate in club competitions,” Mrs Doyle said.

The under-7s age manager award winner was Scarlett Scott, Xavier Zong Aleknavicus and Chella Ballantine won the under-8 and under-9 awards.

The under-10 award went to Tamsen Irwin and Alby Bach won the under-11 award.

Wyatt Irwin and Lana Clements won the under-12s and under-13s respectively. Annie O’Connor took out the junior club achiever award for her self-motivation and great team spirit this year.

The 13-year-old she was proud to receive the award after working hard all season. “I love the beach and spending time with my friends and family at the surf club is so enjoyable,” Annie said.

She has competed in club championships and country championship competitions with the club.

The O’Connor family are all involved in the club and enjoy helping out. Annie’s mum is a youth leader and her dad is a water safety captain. Her older sister is also in the youth program at the club.

Annie hopes to get her surf rescue certificate and bronze medallion so she is able to patrol as a surf lifesaver.

Mrs Doyle said Woodside donated a vest, cap and sun hat for all the Woodside Nipper members.
