Herb Jeffrey Award

During the meet, one of our local coaches was honoured with The Herb Jeffrey Award. This award was first presented in 1985 and recognizes outstanding service to Country Swimming in excess of twenty years.  Kevin White from Yarrawonga Mulwala has been coaching for 22 years and at the club level has held roles as President, Registrar and Swim Meet Director and was awarded life membership in 2005.  At the district level, Kevin spent 3 years as Vice President Central Division and 2 years as President of Ovens And Murray District. During this period Kevin was keen to continue with the Development Camps for the junior swimmers and workshops for the District Officials with the hope of attracting new Officials to assist with the sport. He was awarded Life Membership of Ovens & Murray in 2008. He also spent 14 years as a qualified level 2 starter

Kevin continues to enjoy the sport of swimming, supporting and encouraging his swimmers with a smile on his face.

It was wonderful to see the award presented to Kevin by our own Don Alchin, himself a recipient of the same award in 2011.
