Nippers Training 15th Feb

As usual with a Normanville carnival we have organised to have Saturday training (Saturday 15th February) at Normanville as most families choose to stay down there for the weekend. Semaphore will muster on the Lawn Area near the Normanville SLSC at 1:45pm.

Junior Carnival – 16th Feb

Parking for this location can be difficult so if travelling down that morning please leave time to transition to the beach in time. Please present to your Age Group Manager by 7:45am.

The proposed Event Schedule is shown below with copies available on the day as usual.


We will need to provide water cover for both the Saturday training session and Sunday’s carnival. If you can help out either in the IRB as crew or on a board / with a tube please text Steph B on 0429 046 362.

RnR State Championships – Semaphore SLSC

RnR State Championships for Juniors and Seniors will be held at Semaphore SLSC on 22nd February 2020 from around 9am to 4pm, with clubs from around the state visiting Semaphore to compete.

There’s lots of things to organise before hand and we will need lots of help on the day to make this event a success. We will be looking for volunteers to assist in several different areas. Breakfast cookers/servers, beach working party for event setup and pack-up and first-aid tent staff are just some of the areas we will need help with. Please e-mail juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au to indicate if you can help.

The events that will be competed will include:

  • Wade Relay
  • Tug-o-War
  • Sprint Relay
  • Cameron
  • Swim Relay

All Nippers, Age Group Managers and Assistants will be included in these events, even down to the youngest sandcrab.

Teams will be named after club stalwarts bringing together our history and our future. If available, they will be invited to be there on the day as team captains.

Presentation of the Brian Donnell Perpetual Trophy, and bragging rights until season 2020/21, will be made afterwards upstairs at the club.
