As many of you may be aware Jersey Surf Club have made some phenomenal strides over the past few years in restructuring and developing junior talent to represent their island at the European Championships.
The GSC has been working closely with the JSC over the past few months in order to learn from their successes (and failures) so that we can build a similar structure going forward to benefit our members.
GSC is currently working towards this more structured set up so it’s members can not only enjoy the current benefits of insurance but also have the opportunity to take part in more competitions both locally, inter-island and eventually further afield, (with a particular focus on the juniors) not to mention more regular and better notified social events.
With this in mind we will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on February 19th where we invite anyone who wishes to get involved in the club to attend. Here hopefully everyone can air their opinions and ideas and help appoint people to the relevant roles so that some of this can be implemented.
Obviously we have to be realistic about what we can achieve and how quickly we can do it but for 2015 we are proposing something along the lines of the competition schedule below, with the focus being the creation of the Junior Series over the summer months to encourage talent at this level:
