    Hi Nippers People,

    Well done to everyone for surviving the Ocean Grove carnival last week. If that was your first carnival - some very experienced carnival people are saying that is the worst conditions they have ever experienced! We came third overall with 75 Jan Juc nippers competing.

    We are expecting 1-2ft light onshore conditions tomorrow so plan to be at Jan Juc.

    Cosy Corner Carnival entries are due by the 15th of December. Please see your team manager tomorrow if you have any questions about registering.

    See you on the beach.

    Hi Nippers People,

    Hopefully we are looking at ok conditions for a Jan Juc session this Sunday 9-11am (3ft and slight onshore).

    You would have seen a Team App invite to an event titled 'Nipper Parents - Technical Officials training'. This will be held for parents and carers at the club rooms 9-10:30am this Sunday while Nippers is running. We are still short on officials to support our entries to carnivals. Caro had to negotiate with Life Saving Victoria to allow us to enter the Ocean Grove carnival as a club next weekend, but we won't be allowed to do this at the next carnival. We need to supply a ratio of officials based on our entries. We are going to have to implement the rule we have flagged from the start of the season that your nipper is not able to attend more than one carnival if you are not able to help with being a coach, team manager, official or water safety. We are running the officials training this Sunday so that you can do it whilst you are at the club anyway. Please come along to the training.

    See you on the beach or in the club training.

    Hi Nippers People,

    Looks like we will get in and out just before the SE winds kick in tomorrow. See you at Jan Juc 9-11am. Ky Hurst will be at the session providing specialist coaching for the older age groups.

    Some other reminders:

    - Remember to RSVP and pay for the Ocean Grove carnival by tomorrow - please see you Team Manager

    - Thursday night training for U9-U13 has kicked off. Please arrive at Front Beach at 5:15pm so that we can check in and get started.

    - It is not too late to become an official. An easy online training session and then a mentoring session at the Ocean Grove Carnival will get you there. Please see your Team Manager tomorrow if you are interested.

    Hello Nippers People - Big week of Nippers coming up.

    Sunday session: 9 -11am with Under 7's and 8's kicking off. It will be great to have all age groups running now from U7 to U13's.

    Thursday session: Thursday sessions kick off on the 9th of November, 5:15 to 6:30pm. Front Beach, Torquay will be the default location, however if conditions are good we will swing to Jan Juc. Updates will be provided by Team App. A good reminder for everyone to join the their Team App age group chat, especially u7 or u8. Your team manager can help them on Sunday if you are not on the chat.

    Have fun!

    How good are the conditions looking for tomorrow! Warm, light wind and low swell.

    See you on the beach at 9am.

    Roger will be there at 8:30am for anyone who needs to collect a board they have hired.

    The kiosk will be open, pumping out coffees, snakes and snacks. For anyone who is keen to help out with the kiosk please have a chat with Constance at the kiosk. We are organising barista training for our volunteers.

    Hi Nippers,

    The action ramps up this weekend!

    Under 12 and 13's are off to their first carnival in Williamstown. Note for those not attending the carnival there will still be normal Nippers at Jan Juc for U12 and 13s.

    Boards are being handed out, for those that have hired boards, at 8am on the Sunday morning.

    Under 9-11's will have their first week of water activities. Please remember that your nipper will not be able to go into the water unless they have submitted their swim assessment or S-Badge confirmation form by midday Thursday this week (giving the office time to enter them into the system).

    See you on the beach.

    Hi Nippers,

    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:

    1. 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.
    2. At times the limited number of water safety volunteers we have can limit the ability for age groups to get in the water.
    3. 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.

    Got you interested? Click on this link: Bronze Medallion registration

    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.
