New Nipper Boards From West Lakes Rotary

Special thanks to our friends at West Lakes Rotary, their continuing support and generosity has seen us receive 2 new Fiberglass Bennett Nipper Boards valued at $2500 this support is over and above their sponsorship for the our Club Rotary Awards and ongoing volunteer support to our Club.

The boards look fantastic and will serve our Nippers well for many, many years to come.

West Lakes Rotary President Andrew De Garis and Representative Ken Purcell, who secured the grant, presented the boards to us on Saturday 29th January.

With the absence of our illustrious Canteen Manager Gregg the Club President (Paul) will be manning the kitchen before training this week with a modified light snack menu.

Open from 10:30 am for Toasted Sandwiches, Cold Rolls, and a Presidential specialty Flat Dogs (thats a hot dog made in a sandwich press). If you’ve ever been to Pt Adelaide Baseball Club you’ll know what I mean.

After training there will be a gold coin donation sausage sizzle, and Nippers will also get a Zooper Dooper.

Gregg will be back with his famous club breakfast menu next Saturday (22nd Jan)

R&R Training – Suspended

R&R Training is suspended for the foreseeable future. Given the close proximity that R&R competitors need to operate at as well as the possibility of Covid-19 transmission among unvaccinated children under 12 it has been decided to suspend both 5 person and 2 person R&R Training for the present time.

We will let you know when or if they will recommence this season.

Largs Bay Swim Centre – New Club Sponsor

We welcome Largs Bay Swim Center as a Bronze Sponsor of Semaphore SLSC. Many of our Club’s members have enjoyed a long relationship with the Center and this has lead to this great business coming on board as official Club Sponsors.

Many of our Nippers currently enjoy the learn to swim classes with some already graduated to the squad programs and as such have joined the majority of our Youth and Senior competitors.

In fact we would urge any Nipper wanting to be successful in surf competition, if not currently undertaking learn to swim or squad sessions, to do so. It is one of the most important skills in Surf Life Saving. Just because you can stay afloat in a pool doesn’t mean you can complete a 150m open water proficiency swim.

We even have a Club swim nights as part of the centre’s Aussies Squad on Wednesday nights from 7pm, or once graduated from the learn to swim program we have a squad for our Nippers simply to assist in building endurance for surf swimming.

Contact the Centre on 8341 6062 to ask about the right session for you or your children.
