Participation in training and competition is an opportunity to support an active and healthy lifestyle. We aim to help our club members develop foundation movement skills, important life skills and create a passion for surf sports and the great outdoors.
As part of your membership, there is a free introductory board paddling and water skills course for U9+. This takes place before Nippers on Sundays at 8.30am for 6 weeks. This course is optional. Parents or carers must be present for this session.
Turn up on the day and learn the basics of Water Training :
- Board Paddling Skills (boards provided on the day)
- Swim (Surf) Skills
- Beach Skills when the surf conditions are unfavourable
Anyone undertaking this course must have completed their Preliminary Swim Evaluation. See above ‘Sunday Nippers’ section for more information.
Don’t forget to bring your pink or green hi-vis rash vest (no vest then no entering the water), NCC Nippers cap, wetsuit (the warmer the better) and goggles. See you there!
If your U9+ child enjoys this initial course, there are additional sessions they can join . Information can be found here
Further Water Training
If a child has satisfied the trainers that they are competent with the surf, they can join the Yellow (beginner), Lime (intermediate) or Green (advanced) Squads.
A small fee will be required for Yellow Squad and a higher fee for Green Squad training. Competition Evaluation must be passed to undertake this training.
What to bring: Pink or green hi-vis rash vest and goggles, and a board if you have one. Please note: No vest then no entering the water
When conditions are unsuitable for training at North Curl Curl any change in venue will be communicated via the facebook group called NCC Surf Sports Competitors Family Page
Water activities don’t run without water safety. If you have a current Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion, you can assist with water safety.
We always appreciate assistance! Please talk to the coaches; even if you can’t swim, you can still help. Parents/ Carers must stay for the duration of the session.
