Hi all, welcome to the closing of another season.
Thank you to Dave for his efforts over the past seasons.
Dave has been a great asset to the club and contributed
endless hours above and beyond his role. Not only has he been
coach, but also been a dedicated lifeguard and club member.
Dave leaves our club to spend time with his new family.
We wish him all the very best.
We are lucky enough to have confirmed the new coach for
the year. There is a meeting for the athletes to meet the new
coach and discuss training programmes and athletes goals for the
next season. This is open to all members. This will be
on Monday 4th April at
7pm at 16 Primula Place, Waimairi Beach.
Any further questions or queries can be discussed with Daryl on
Rebuild of the club room is progressing well. By
the start of next season we will be seeing significant developments
of the new clubroom. There will be a working bee at the
clubrooms mid to late April to remove gear, so the existing
clubrooms can be demolished.
A team of 9 junior athletes competed at Oceans 16. These
are held at Mt Manganui each year and attract approximately 1100
juniors from all around NZ. It is the pinnacle event for
juniors to attend during the season. They all achieved great
results with 4 of them making finals, which is an amazing
result. Thanks to Meghan Baker for all her efforts with the
This season we saw a young crew of predominately
Under 16 athletes produce the best results ever from a Spencer team
with a great places at K Day and Southern Champs
Unfortunately at national level simple mistakes cost the
athletes places in finals. A lot of hard lesson were learnt
but they all put everything they had on the line. Some
highlights were Millie making run swim run final and Grace, Megan
and Millie making Under 19 ski finals with it only being
Millie's 3rd ever ski race and board relay final
The results at nationals does not reflect the effort this
young team has done this season as a squad. They are 1st squad to
reach a level of 85% attendance as a squad to
I wish them all the best and keep aiming high.
Don't let anyone tell you different. Dream big, who
cares if you fail you tried
Thanks for everything
Thank you to all our dedicated lifeguards who patrolled
our beach this summer. We had lots of new life guards who
performed well. We had some lovely warm days and some chilly
days. On cooler days, the club rooms got a good clean
up. They kept the beach safe again this year with only minor
first aid incidents, so well done to you all.
PARENTS AND HELPERS
A massive thank you to all the parents who supported
club days. They were all very enthusiastic about getting into
the water on cold days. You were all amazing at helping
transport and unload gear, helping at carnivals and cooking the
BBQ. Without you this club would not be the club it is
