BRONZE MEDALLION FROM A ROOKIES PERSPECTIVE

Ruk de Silva, Feb/Mar 2018 Bronzie

Since moving to Sydney from Canada last year, completing my Bronze Medallion at Bronte SLSC has been a highlight of my time in Australia. As a new resident of Bronte, enrolling in the Bronze course was a great way to meet many locals and build my social network in the community. The course was a challenging, fun, and at times humbling experience. Sharing it with a group of friendly and likeminded people it was the perfect conditions to make new friends. Over the duration of the course, we became a tight-knit group providing moral (and physical!) support and encouragement to each other in a team environment. What a fun and friendly atmosphere to learn first aid, increase surf skills and awareness, and improve personal fitness.

As someone new to the surf, there was a big learning curve ahead of me when I started the course. However, surprisingly to me, I quickly felt comfortable pushing myself out of my comfort zone thanks to the assistance and support of Bronte’s trainers who invested so much of their time and energy into ensuring the success of each and every Bronzie. The trainers were quick to recognize individual strengths and weaknesses and went out of their way to give each person the training and attention they needed to succeed. In fact, Bronte’s trainers have inspired me to volunteer as a trainer for new bronze groups in the future. The course was a very rewarding experience for me and I’m committed to further strengthen my skills and confidence in and out of the surf with the ongoing training and fitness programs offered by the club. I'm proud to be a new member of Bronte SLSC - See you down there on patrol!
