Redcliffe Peninsula Surf Life Saving Club’s Emily Robins Tops State Junior Lifesavers

Emily Robins of the Redcliffe Peninsula Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) has been named Queensland’s 2023 Under 14 Junior Lifesaver of the Year.

Season of success for Emily Robins

The award put a cap on what was an extremely successful competitive season for 14-year-old Emily. 

She also took home the 2022/23 Sunshine Coast Junior Lifesaver of the Year award, her club’s own Nipper of the Year award, and the Most Outstanding Surf Rescue Cadet award. Emily admits that she was shocked when she found out she won the state-level award.

As part of earning the state’s top junior lifesaving award, Emily was given a $500 educational stipend and the opportunity to take part in PCYC’s week-long ESCape emergency services workshop.

Emily has been a member of the Redcliffe Peninsula SLSC since she was 8 years old in the “Nippers” junior program. She moved up to the competitive lifesaving cadet squad this season as a 14-year-old.

She says she loves being a part of the club, which she describes as being like a big family.
