Nippers Season Handbook and Policy Handbook – Delayed 1 Week

The Nippers Season and Nippers Policy Handbooks have beeb delayed by 1 week so it is now expected to be distributed at the on 2nd November 2019 with the Policy Handbook to follow shortly after.

It is our hope that this handbook will serve as a first point of call for information about Semaphore SLSC 2019/20 Season. The combination of the Season and Policy Handbooks should clarify all things to do with the Surf Life Saving SA and Semaphore Nippers programs.

If you have any questions in the mean time please see your Age Group Manager, Junior Convenor (Ian Biggs) or Junior Surf Secretary (Steph Breden)

Nipper Proficiencies

Before being able to attend Carnivals this season all nippers U9 to U13 must attain their preliminary and competition proficiencies. These proficiencies are set by Surf Life Saving Australia and are not negotiable.

U8’s will need to complete their preliminary proficiencies before the first carnival with their competition proficiencies usually not required until just after Christmas as their first lot of water events are usually included in the January Carnival.

Meeting the preliminary proficiencies will allow a nipper to compete at carnivals in every event except open water events.

Meeting the competition proficiencies will allow a nipper to compete in all events at carnival.

In order to be eligible to attend the State Championship Carnival Nippers must meet both of the proficiencies listed above and complete all sections of the Surf Education Award for their age group (done as part of our Nipper Training). In addition U13’s, if not completing their SRC during the season, must complete the Resuscitation Certificate (AID) to be eligible.
