Hi there Nippers and Families,

We are back on the beach this Sunday 16th October.

So much work has been going on behind the scenes for months now to prepare for a good season so here’s cheers to a great one.

Please read the following:

  1. U12,13,14 & parents are required at the club at 8.30am You are on duty for the day…this requires setting up the beach, the BBQ, running the BBQ and packing it all away. Each Sunday a different Age group will be on duty. In the event that no one turns up to run the day, that age group will not particiipate in nippers for the day.
  2. Sydney Water fees are required this Sunday. A short meeting for Sydne y Water will be held prior to nipper on the 23rd Oct.
  3. We need people to help out and become officials for the Carnivals. Officials course is the Saturday 5th Nov. See Lisa to put your name down.
  4. SRC & Bronze medallion course is being run over the Fri to Sunday 11th to 13th November. Contact Nicollete on 0433 114 329. This is a requirement for those helping kids in the water or on patrol. No parent is allowed to help kids in the water without an SRC certificate. This is a Surf Life Saving OH&S requirement.
