ClubsNSW has committed to its long-term support of Surf Life Saving NSW, extending its long-term major partnership and continuing its naming rights role to ensure the success of key surf safety initiatives and member programs.
“We are excited about a continued partnership with ClubsNSW, through its Your local club banner, which has developed over the past decade-and-a-half,” SLSNSW President Peter Agnew said. “Our membership of 76,000-strong is at the heart of all we do, and this partnership allows us to continue putting them first and help them to provide a vital coastal safety service to beachgoers.”
“Your local club” has supported Surf Life Saving for the last 14 years, notably as the Naming Rights sponsor of the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships and is a supporting partner in the delivery of the Country Championships.
Beach to Bush, SLSNSW’s flagship educational program, where volunteer lifesavers travel to rural and remote schools across the state to deliver surf safety messaging, also benefits from support from the partnership.
“ClubsNSW through Your local club is very proud to extend its partnership with Surf Life Saving NSW for another three years,” Acting ClubsNSW CEO Sallianne Faulkner said.
“Our partnership with Surf Life Saving NSW strengthens year on year because both of our associations put the interests of our members and our communities first — it’s an objective on which we are well and truly aligned — and we look forward to building on that relationship even further over the next three years.”
Agnew added that NSW volunteer lifesavers will continue to see many benefits through the partnership.
“Your local club supports our work in developing skilled and well-resourced lifesavers to patrol the coastline and keep beachgoers safe – it’s fundamental to what we do,” he said.
