Nippers Sign on Dates
The nippers swim proficiencies and sign on days will be held at the Crescent Head Pool on Saturday 22 and 29 September (1030am paperwork for 11am swim)
Nippers aged 8 and above need complete a pool swim proficiency at the same time so bring your swimmers.
For Nippers wishing to compete in branch or championship days, they will also need to complete an ocean swim which we aim to hold on Sunday 21 October.
Nippers for the 2018/19 season is due to start on Sunday 21 October from 9:30am. Kids will hit the beach and do a warm up and some water safety activities on the sand and will only enter the water once patrol has signed on.
Club Championship Days
A club championship day, is a day that allows all of our nippers training and skills to be put to the test. It is a fun way for our nippers to see how they are tracking in a fun and friendly environment. It helps our nippers familiarise themselves with competition. There will be a range of activities that will suit all age groups.
Although Nippers are awarded points for competing and finishing in the top 4 positions, the Club Championship day is still all about having fun.
Championship days will be held on
Club championship days are used to help provide awards at the end of the season.
1st = 5 points
2nd = 4 points
3rd = 3 points
4th = 2 points
Each competitor receives a point for trying an event.
To allow our kids and families to make the most of the summer holidays the last nippers session will be Sunday 16December. Nippers wll recommence on 27 January 2019 at 9:30am.
We will have a Christmas Party following our championship day on Sunday 16 December. There will be a free BBQ and we ask that parents bring along a plate of salads or dessert. Parents and grandparents are welcome to attend and we ask that you RSVP to allow for catering. We will remind you on Sunday mornings.
