Why do it?
Lots of reasons but mainly:
- It’s FUN and great for your child’s surf skills, surf confidence, and fitness.
- Participation in grass roots local event and local club where kids get to make new friends and be part of a team outside the school environment and across all age levels.
- A strong association with the surf club is a stabilising influence as kids hit adolescence.
Carnivals offer the true spirit of competition and camaraderie, in many cases forming friendships which last a lifetime.
There’s a comprehensive document about Carnivals “All About Nipper Carnivals” in the Downloads section in TeamApp.
How to Enter
The Team App Calendar has listed many of the carnivals you can enter this season.
An email is sent out from SurfGuard to all U8 to U14 Nippers inviting you to enter each carnival. The email will have a link to a questionnaire for you to complete.
Additionally, subscribe to the Carnivals group on Team App to receive further information.
If you enter a carnival you are expected to participate as entry fees are paid by the Club. U8’s can generally participate in most Sydney Northern Beaches carnivals. Note NSW State Championships do not include U8’s
ALL parents of carnival kids are required to participate in at least one area: Officials, Water Safety, Tent Setup, Tent Decamp, Work Party.
