Two chosen for NSW squad
Two young athletes from Umina Surf Life Saving Club have been named to the NSW National Squad.
Umina's Blake Hessel and Kaylah Holmes will compete for a spot on the Australian Youth Lifesaving Team that will contest the Life Saving World Championships in 2020.
The Australian Youth Lifesaving Team will be made up of the 32 top performing Under-17 athletes in the country, with the final team to be selected after the completion of the 2019 pool rescue season and 2019/20 surf sports season.
Australian Youth Life Saving Team head coach Mr Craig Holden is confident the depth across the state squads would give the future team the potential to reclaim the Youth National Team Title.
"We have an amazing array of young talent here in Australia and it is always extremely difficult in determining our squads," said Mr Holden.
Blake and Kaylah are the only two representatives from a Central Coast club to be chosen for the squad.
