October 2019 – Welcome to the New Season!
Daylight savings is here, the sun is heating up and the beach is calling. Can’t wait for this Nippers season to kick off on Sunday October 13th. Bring it on…
That Rego Website!!!
For a club (and movement) that espouses welcomeness and a focus on continuity of membership into adult life, the experience of joining or renewing Nipper membership is challenging to say the least! The portal is very frustrating!
Also, for the uninitiated, getting your head around a surf club is extremely complicated. Please don’t hesitate to ring or email me with any questions or ideas or issues – or better still grab me on the beach. Be assured that there are many in the same boat, and if you’re feeling a bit lost, please hang in there and shout out for help.
Get Coached for Speeeeeeed
Under the guidance of Beach Coach, Sophie McGovern and Beach Manager, Veronica Lowe, all Nippers are invited to attend a fun-based training session at 4.30 each Monday. No need to commit to a full season, just come and try it out. Additional sessions will be scheduled based on interest and requirements.
Had a Little Fall
Geez it makes you feel old when you’re out of action (work, club stuff and social activities) because I had a little fall in the city, it was a bit wet. Laugh as much as you want at the evidence of old person but the pain of multiple busted ribs is no laughing matter! In my complete absence from doing anything, big thanks to all who stepped in especially to plan and run the Mighty 67’s gala day.
Nipper parenting isn’t a spectator sport
In this way Nippers is different from all other junior sports – and we think that’s great. There’s lots of ways to help out. Some of them are obvious and directed by your Age Manager. But there’s a role for every skill set – for some you don’t even have to get wet or sandy, or be locked in each week.
Let me know if I can help identify a role to suit you.
Director of Admin for the club has gathered a group of talented volunteers to run our uniforms and branded gear. The goals are to enable all types of members to wear our club identity with pride, make sure our teams and reps are well presented and of course to contribute commercially.
The “shop” will be open before Nippers especially in the early part of the season and other times when there’s enough people about. Check out our Uniform Page Here. Thanks Mick and Kate and your army of helpers.
