With various training sessions focusing on different aspects such as surf ski, ins and outs, board, beach fit, beach sprint, and swim, there is a diverse range of activities to cater to all members. The training sessions are filled with friendly energy and a supportive atmosphere, making it a welcoming environment for both seasoned members and newcomers,” said Paul ‘Buck’ Rogers, MSLSC Team Manager.

Building a Positive Culture

At Mooloolaba Masters, we pride ourselves on being supportive and encouraging to new members while prioritising fun and enjoyment in all our activities. We have worked hard to build a positive culture that promotes fitness and skill-building and fosters a sense of camaraderie and friendship among members. This has been particularly beneficial for new bronzies looking to gain new skills and fitness for patrols.

Encouraging Participation

One key aspect of our success is encouraging participation from all members, including nipper parents who have joined training and competitions for the first time. By hosting small carnivals, such as the one in Hervey Bay and our own carnival last December, we have provided opportunities for members to showcase their skills and enjoy the thrill of competition. Additionally, we have actively encouraged new members and clubbies to participate in surf carnivals, emphasising the importance of having fun and staying fit.

Supporting Each Other

The spirit of camaraderie and support among Mooloolaba Masters is genuinely remarkable. Everyone encourages and cheers on their fellow members at carnivals, creating a positive and uplifting atmosphere. Volunteer coaches and clubbies play a crucial role in sharing their expertise, skills, and knowledge with the group, further enhancing the overall experience for everyone involved. This sense of unity and teamwork drives our success and motivates us to achieve our goals.

Looking Ahead

As we gear up for the upcoming Aussie Titles in four weeks, which is being held at Alex, Maroochydore and Mooloolaba, excitement is running high among all members of Mooloolaba Masters. Each member’s dedication, hard work, and passion will undoubtedly shine through at the prestigious event. With a strong sense of unity and mutual support, we are confident in our abilities and eager to represent Mooloolaba Masters with pride and honour.

The Mooloolaba Masters Surf Lifesaving Championship team exemplifies the true spirit of sportsmanship, camaraderie, and dedication. Through a combination of training, encouragement, and teamwork, they have created a thriving community that is focused not only on fitness and skill-building but also on fostering friendships and having fun. The success of Mooloolaba Masters serves as a testament to the power of unity and support in achieving common goals.
