Following that John held various roles including three years as Bronze Coordinator, three years as Advanced Award Coordinator,2 years as Patrol Education Officer and three years as Life Saving Manager.
John has an exceptional patrolling record having averaged 35 hours a season over a 24 year period. Outside of Trigg, John also attend Bronze examinations at other metropolitan clubs that seek him out for his knowledge and fairness as an independent assessor. During the off season while spending time in Broome with his family he has regularly helped the local club there as a trainer and assessor. As a result of the above it is clear why he has been awarded Life Membership in 2017.
