Nipper day

Nippers runs each Sunday morning, with the exception of a couple of times during the season, when we hold Twilight nippers on Saturday afternoon. See calendar

A few rules for nippers and parents

  • Nippers must keep cap on at all times  - caps come off only after their name has been marked off at the end of nippers
  • Nippers cannot leave their group unaccompanied
  • Parents are expected to stay with their child. Age managers cannot be expected to  supervise all children in such a busy environment. If you need to leave the group for a moment – arrange with another parent to be responsible for yours while you are gone
  • Parents should assist where possible – you need to be a general member ($20) for insurance purposes
  • U8+ nippers must wear pink vest while in the water
  • Don’t forget sun protection
  • Parents, if your age group is rostered on for BBQ and set up, please help
