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.
