Nippers hit the beach!

We’ve had a wonderful start to the Nippers season for 2017/2018.  Semaphore turned on the weather with our youngsters enjoying a full program of activities.  It’s such a wonderful thing to see the children of the community involved in such a healthy lifestyle.  A great environment for the entire family.

Plenty of opportunities to participate in a Come and Try day before the end of December.  You can purchase 3 “Come and Try” sessions for $15.  These sessions can be used on any Saturday training afternoon up until December 31.

Training begins with a get together in age groups next to the Club at 12:45pm with beach activities between 1-3pm.

Call out for Age Group Managers and Assistant Managers

With the Nippers season fast approaching we are calling on volunteers to help fill several Age Group Manager and Assistant Manager positions.  No Surf Life Saving experience is required for this rewarding role.  We are looking for people who love supporting children to grow and learn in a safe, family friendly environment.

You may have a child that is participating in Nippers for the first time or returning in an older age group.  You could be a former Nipper member now looking to expand your experiences on the beach.  Whatever your background you will become an integral part of our Club, supported by the expertise of experienced members.  Training for the role will also be available.

We are seeking Age Group Managers and Assistant Managers in the following age groups:

Sand Crabs Under 6/7’s

Under 8’s

Under 9’s

 

 

Our volunteers help shape our Club and we are proud of the involvement we receive from our members.  You too can be a part of this experience.  We have an exciting program ahead for the 2017/2018 season and are looking for a team of volunteers willing to expand the diversity that already exists within our Club.

If you are interested in filling one of the above roles or would like more information please contact Junior Convener Bruce Moseley on 0428580507.

 

See you on the beach!
