Umina has two candidates for Junior Lifesaver award
Umina Surf Life Saving Club has two candidates for the Central Coast Junior Lifesaver of the Year.
Club juniors Davara Marshall and Jed Hoyland have been nominated for the award which is made to one male and one female junior each year.
Held by Surf Life Saving Central Coast, the award is one of the most prestigious an aspiring lifesaver can achieve, with all Central Coast surf clubs able to submit a male and female junior for consideration.
Both Davara and Jed have been through the awards process, which includes a panel interview with the judges, a surf lifesaving theory paper and a live patient and CPR assessment.
They're now preparing for the Junior Branch Carnival, to be held at Copacabana Beach on February 2, upon completion of which this year's winners will be announced.
If successful, the pair will move a step closer to being NSW Junior Lifesaver of the Year and be eligible to attend Surf Life Saving NSW's Junior Lifesaver Development Camp.
