    Hi Nippers People,

    Sorry for the late update this week. 

    Nippers is planned to be at Jan Juc on Sunday but the surf is building so be on the look out for a team app notification if we decide to change to Front Beach.

    The Cafe will also be open. Thanks Constance for all the work you have put into getting this up and running. Good coffee, hot chocolates and snacks.

    Some reminders:

    • 5th March is our last Sunday session. It will be a 3-5pm session, followed by presentations at the club rooms.
    • Some Nippers who are attending States still need to complete their booklets and first aid for their surf ed award. See your team manager for a booklet if required and we will email you a pack with first aid information and a questionnaire to run through at home.
    • States is on the 10th to 12th of March. Remember events start on the Friday.

    See you on the beach.

    Hi Nippers Families,

    Nice night tonight for the Wednesday training session. Reminder that there is no Nippers this Sunday. We have the Anglesea carnival on Saturday with marshalling starting at 8:30am. The program for the day is here

    We are also in prep mode for States on the 10-12 March. A few points on States:

    - To compete you need to have completed your Surf Ed Award. For those that have not yet completed the Surf Ed Awards (please check with your Team Manager if you are not sure): 1. There is a First Aid make - up session on Monday 20th Feb 6:30pm at the surf club, 2. You also need to complete a theory booklet which you can collect from your Team Manager and hand in on the First Aid night.

    - Coaches will be selecting individual and team entries for events. They put a lot of thought into who goes into which events, with many factors contributing to their decisions - including a Nippers attendance and dedication at training and carnivals, attitude and performance. Teams are pre-selected but confirmed on the day so please ask your Nippers to support your coaches by not asking who is in who's team.

    See you at Anglesea on Sunday.

    Hi Nippers People,

    Feels like Easter weather and surf is on it's way. Please find below an update on all things Nippers for the week.

    Wednesday Night

    Same place, same time: 5:30pm at Front Beach


    No Nippers this Sunday as we are at the Point Leo Carnival. A link to the program for the day is here Point Leo Program. Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Anglesea and States Carnival

    Registrations are opening for the Anglesea (18th Feb) and States (10-12 March) carnivals. Look out for them on Team App.

    We only have 2 sites left at the Warrnambool Caravan Park for States - please let Kate Walsh know asap if you want one.

    Coaches will be working on determining event representations and teams for States over Feb. As always coaches will use attitude, ability and attendance as a reference when determining who represents us at events. Please support your coaches in their selections.

    Go Jan Juc.

    Hello Nipper Families,

    Please find below an update on all things Nippers:

    Wednesday Night Session (tonight)

    At Front beach 5:30pm

    Sunday 29th

    At Jan Juc 9-11am

    Next week

    Wednesday will be as normal.

    There will be no Nippers on Sunday 5th Feb as we will be at the Point Leo carnival. There is still time to enter if you are keen (just register and pay via events on team app before this Friday). In particular it would be good to have some more U8, U9 and U10 women contestants so that we can put teams together for the relay events. If you are holding off entering due to the requirement to be able to perform a volunteer role if your Nipper enters more than 1 carnival, remember you can do the online officials course and register your intent to do the practical training with Caro ( This will qualify you to be able to enter your Nipper even though you will not yet be able to perform the officials role.

    See you on the beach.

    Summer Program Wrap Up

    Well that's a wrap for the Summer Program. Thanks to everyone who participated and volunteered their time and skills to make it a great success.

    They say a picture says a thousand words, well a video says even more. Please click on the link below for highlights of the 22022/23 Summer Program. 


    Return to Competition Program

    This Wednesday 5:30pm Under 12 and 13's will have Iron Training at Front Beach. All other age groups have the night off and rest up after a big couple of weeks.

    All age groups will be back on this Sunday 9-11am at Jan Juc (unless conditions require us to move - the long range forecast looks onshore but ok swell at this stage)


    We have four carnivals remaining for the season:

    • Torquay / Jan Juc Friendly Carnival -  Wed18th Jan 5:30pm at Torquay back beach, followed by meals, music and bar at the Torquay SLSC
    • Point Leo - 5th Feb
    • Anglesea - 18th Feb
    • States - Warnambool 10-12th March

    Please be reminded that if your Nipper has entered more than one carnival for the year you need to be able to volunteer as an official or water safety; or be an active coach or team manager in the weekly competition program. We have to meet certain volunteer ratios to be able to enter a carnival and Life Saving Victoria have warned us they will not be accepting registrations going forward if we can not meet this ratio. The easiest way for you to meet this requirement is to complete the officials course. Please email us on if you need help registering for the officials course. We are going to have to be strict on this requirement so please register asap if you need to.

    See you on the beach.
