This weekend sees NCC SLSC really come alive with the start of Nippers on Sunday. The forecast is for sunshine and the surf will be friendly, Bottles will be in full swing as well!
If you’re a new member to our club experiencing “Ripper Nippers”, Nippers, patrols, surf sports or are training for your first SLS awards welcome to our community and thanks in advance you’re your involvement.

Our club can’t operate to the levels we hope to provide without our membership putting back in so my ask is “please if you can help in any way, either volunteering at Sunday Nippers… helping our marketing and events team or if you would like to Sponsor our club, get in touch directly with me and I will point you in the right direction”

To our members giving up their time to patrol our beach this weekend – THANK YOU

See you on the beach or in the Surf

Patrols are looking great so far this season. We have had really strong participation levels. A special shout-out and welcome to our new members Jayden, Blake, Will, Paul, Lauren, Patti and Kim, and new SRC’s Will and Luke. Thanks to everyone for such a big effort to give us a confident start to the season. Patrol 9 is clearly eyeing off the Patrol of the Year award already as they shovelled the sand out of the bottom shed last weekend – thank you! All teams have now completed the first round of patrols.

The water is warming up so get out there and prepare for your wet proficiency – Run – Swim – Run and this season, a demonstrated tube rescue. Proficiency dates are shown in ‘Training Events’ in your portal and you need to book a session.
