CONGRATULATIONS TO ILLIA KYRYCHENCKO – SNB NIPPER OF THE YEAR WINNER
Congratulations to our very own Illia Kyrychenko U12s awarded Sydney Northern Beaches Nipper of the year.
Illia’s spirit and determination has shaped his journey from war torn Ukraine to Manly’s beautiful beaches. As a new U11 at the beginning of last season he threw himself into everything about Manly Nippers, learning the language along the way. He has worked hard to develop his surf lifesaving skills and made the most of every opportunity to learn more & train. His positive attitude, sportsmanship and willingness to help others make him an invaluable member of our Manly Lifesaving community and a role model for aspiring nippers.
His compassion and empathy encouraged our wider team at Manly Nippers to run a special Nippers Sunday for Ukrainian refugee children in Sydney. I know everyone who participated was touched by the experience which brought out the best in all of us, fostering a sense of unity as a club. Illia encouraged us to embrace diversity, break down language barriers and extend a supporting hand to those who seek refuge in our midst. We are so proud you are a Manly Nipper.
