    How good is this weather! Forecast for Sunday is 25 deg, offshore but looks like rain (we get wet in the water anyway so rain doesn't matter).

    Please find below key updates for this week:

    Under 9-Under 13 Wednesday Sessions

    Wednesday sessions kick off this week, 5:15 to 6:30pm, at Front Beach. These sessions are for Under 9-13. We will start with a focus on swim and board with two groups - a group focusing on 'skills and technique' and a group focusing on 'race and fitness'.

    Please talk to your Nipper about what group they want to be in prior to Wednesday. They can change between groups at the following session if they want to.

    We are looking for someone to pick up and return the trailer. Please let us know if you can help with this by emailing

    Sunday Session

    We will be at Front Beach on Sunday due to a Seniors Carnival being run at Jan Juc on the same day. It was great to have the full crew there last week, welcoming U7's and U8's. Another week at Front Beach will help them settle in and also give the U9-U13's a chance to nail there swim and board fitness.

    We are working hard on getting the Nippers packs together. They are most likely going to be ready for the 20th of Nov. Thanks for your patience.

    See you on the beach!

    Hello Nippers Families,

    Hope you have had a good week. Please find below key Nippers updates for the week:


    Nippers will be at Jan Juc for all age groups tomorrow.

    Under 7 and 8's

    Tomorrow we welcome Under 7 and Under 8's to our sessions. Look forward to seeing you all at the Jan Juc club rooms for a 9am kick off.

    Wednesday Night Sessions

    Wednesday sessions are programmed to start next Wednesday 9th November 5:15 to 6:30pm at Front Beach, however we are looking for a coordinator and coaching volunteers to be able to run the sessions.

    The focus for Wednesday nights is skills, technique, race and fitness in swim, board and beach activities. There will be no age groups. The idea is that those that are building go in the 'Skill and Technique' group and those that are mastering go in the 'Race and fitness' group. Beach, Swim and Board will run in parallel and the Nippers can decide at the start of each session what area and level they want to focus on. They will then stay with this group for the session, but can change at the start of the next Wednesday night session. Coaches can encourage Nippers to work on certain areas based on what they are seeing at the Sunday sessions. Please let us know if you are able to help out with coordinating or coaching for these sessions at 

    Nippers Packs

    We are waiting for a delivery of the pink rash vests to finalise the Nippers packs. We are hoping to be able to hand them out within the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience. Under 8's can you please bring your vests from last year for tomorrow. Under 7's if you have a vest you can borrow from a sibling that would be great. We will also have some temporary vests available.

    Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    Hope you have had a good week everyone and looking forward to the long weekend.

    Nippers will be at Cosy this Sunday 9-11am. This will give us a chance to continue to build our swim and board skills and confidence.

    Thank you to everyone who has registered for Bronze and Carnival Officials Training. We are really looking forward to supporting you through the training and having you as part of the water safety and officials teams. It is not too late to register for the Carnival Officials Training (Officials training registration link)

    See you on the beach.

    It was great to see everyone back on the beach on Sunday and popping back up to the club for a chat after!

    Key updates for week 2:

    Sunday location

    The location for the Under 9-13 session this Sunday 23rd Oct will be at Cosy Corner 9-11am. This will give Nippers a good opportunity to get out on their boards and build confidence in their swims.


    The Kiosk will be opening during Nippers hours starting week 3 (Sunday 30th Oct). Thank you Constance for taking the lead on this for us. We will be looking for 10 volunteers to be on a roster for the Kiosk. Please let us know if you are interested by emailing

    Officials Course

    Look out for a separate post on an Officials course we are planning to run at the same time as the week 3 Nippers session. Being an Official at carnivals is a great way of being close to the action with your age group and helps meet our volunteer requirements for participating in carnivals. We are requiring if your Nipper does 2 or more carnivals you need to be able to volunteer as either an official or water safety. The course is short (completed during the 9-11am time of the week 3 Nippers session), followed by a mentoring session at your first carnival.

    See you at Cosy Sunday morning.

    Hi Nipper Families,

    Please find below some key updates before the season kicks off on Sunday:

    Key Dates:

    Just a reminder on the kick off for the season:

    • Under 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13's kick off next weekend Sunday 16th October 2-4pm at Jan Juc
    • A social kick off for all Nippers age groups is Sunday 16th October 4-7pm at the surf club with food, music and the bar open.
    • Under 7 and 8's kick off on Sunday 6th November 9-11am (all age groups will be running from this Sunday onwards)
    • Wednesday sessions kick off on Wednesday the 9th of November for Under 9s and up.

    Nippers Parents Bronze Medallion Training:

    We are very excited to be offering a Nippers parents bronze medallion program at our club rooms in November. The bronze program is a very rewarding experience that:

    • Enables you to be part of the action in the water with your Nipper
    • Gives you first aid, rescue and water skills that are useful well beyond Nippers sessions
    • Builds long lasting friendships with those that are on the program with you
    • Is one of the ways that you can meet the requirement for parent help if you Nipper wants to attend 2 or more carnivals over the season

    The program will be very supportive, being Nippers parents participating and delivering the course. You will build up your skills and confidence as a team over the duration of the course and you will surprise yourself in what you will achieve! Some parents that did it last year were apprehensive about the water activities before doing the course and were so pleased with what they achieved after doing it - I still remember their celebrations on the beach!

    To register your interest please follow the following link:

    The course will be run over a four week period in November consisting of 2 weekday evenings and a half day on the weekend for each week of the course.

    Swim Assessments:

    We had a great session at the pool today completing over 55 swim assessments. For those that haven't yet completed their swim assessment please send it into asap before the season begins.

    Nippers Registrations:

    Can you also please remember to complete your Nippers registration form (this is in addition to your club membership application and links your Nipper to an age group) (that will be it for registration forms for a while - I promise).

    Under 7 Coaches and Team Managers:

    We are still looking for Under 7 Coaches and Team Managers - please put your name down if interested via this link:

    Looking forward to getting things started.

    Kind Regards

    Nippers Committee
