Each year the Simulated Emergency Response Competition (SERC) is held at the Aquatic Safety Training Academy Seven Hills. This competition tests the initiative, judgment, knowledge, and abilities of lifesavers who, acting as a team or individually, apply lifesaving skills in a simulated emergency situation unknown to them prior to the start. This competition is judged within a 2-minute time limit. All teams respond to the identical situation and are evaluated by the same judges.
We take great pride in announcing Enfield as the winners of the 2014-2015 SERC Trophy. Congratulations to the Enfield SERC team – we are very proud of you!
On Sunday 22 February 2015 Enfield Lifesaving Club hosted their Interclub Carnival at Enfield Pool, Portland Street, Enfield. Interclub Carnivals are a great way for the pool lifesaving community to put their skills and award training to the test in a supportive and friendly competitive environment.
Enfield Lifesaving Club welcomed competitors and visitors from other pool lifesaving clubs including Engadine and Hills. The Enfield Carnival was a fun-filled and exciting day with a healthy level of competitiveness. There was a great turn out of families and friends with 45 of Enfield’s 49 members competing. Congratulations and well done to all the Lifesavers from all the clubs who competed.
Thank you to all the parents from Enfield who helped at the BBQ, organising food for the officials, time keeping and other official duties. Thank you to the other competing clubs who also helped by providing officials. Your efforts are hugely appreciated.
