It was great to kick off last week on the beach with a fun session involving Nippers doing a whole range of activities from building the tallest sand castle, to beach soccer, to diving for flags, to mastering baton changes, to long runs.
Bring it on again tomorrow with another beach session starting at 9am. At least it won't be a daylight saving change this week and maybe a little easier to get out of bed.
Also great to see 15 registrations for the U12/U13 Williamstown Beach Carnival on the 15th of October.
For all age groups your team managers would have had a chat to you last week about the importance of adults being able to volunteer as water safety at our weekly sessions and as water safety or as an official at carnivals.
Did you know:
- At our weekly Nippers sessions if you are in the water helping and don't have your bronze medallion we need to provide water safety supervision for you too - regardless of how good you are in the surf.
- At times the limited number of water safety volunteers we have can limit the ability for age groups to get in the water.
- If your Nipper wants to do more than one carnival you need to be able to volunteer as either an official or water safety. This is due to a strict requirement for each club to provide a ratio of their own water safety and officials.
So how can you help:
a. Register to do your Bronze Medallion. It is an amazing experience that builds skills and confidence for you to not only help out at Nippers but also useful for life in general. It is also good fun doing it with other Nippers parents, building a Bronze Medallion bond for life. The course starts on the 8th of Nov and finishes on the 2nd of Dec, involving 2 week nights a week and a half day on Sundays after Nippers.

b. Complete the Officials Course on-line via the following link Officials course link. Winsome will then work with you to register you for your first carnival where you will be given a practical demonstration. Officiating can be as easy as showing Nippers which post to run around, to counting as they come across the line.
Thanks for reading - see you on the beach.
