TWEED HEADS AND COOLANGATTA NIPPERS SIGN ON

Date: 26 AUGUST 2018
Venue: BANORA POINT POOL
Time: 9AM

Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Surf Club run a sensational Nipper program on the safe and beautiful Greenmount end of Coolangatta beach. The program caters for families just wanting a friendly club that can help get their children surf safe through to promising elite junior athletes that want to be part of the Gold Coast and possibly Queensland premier Beach sprint and flags program and Growing surf program.

Our Sunday program focuses on safety and fun. Nippers join an age group of like minded families just wanting their children to have fun, learn surf skills and how to be safe in all surf conditions. Afterwards all families socialize together enjoying our sausage sizzle or lunch upstairs in our family focused surf club

Through the week and Saturday’s, we offer families the choice of 5 Beach sessions, 5 Surf sessions and 2 senior pool squad sessions all part of the extraordinary low membership fees. Our coaches have multiple world titles and boast a Current Australian Representative.

Sign on is at Banora Pool at 9am on Sunday August 26. The Nipper season starts when patrols start on our beaches on September.

If you have any questions, please call our Nipper President of the last six years Vaughn Thomas on 0413594411.

The fun of surf life saving starts when you join Nippers!
If you’re thinking of introducing your child to lifesaving, then Junior Activities is for you. Junior Activities is open to children from the age five up to 13 years (age for a season is calculated as of midnight September 30). Every club in Queensland offers a Junior Activities program, all with various styles and sizes, so visit your local club to see what’s on offer. Lifesaving is something for the whole family to get involved in and there are many supporting roles that you can play as a parent of a child involved in Junior Activities.

Surf lifesaving is an amazing activity for growing a child’s confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment. Not only will your child have fun and meet new friends they will become part of an iconic organisation that has served the Australian community for over 100 years.

The program is focused on play, participation and fun. It offers an educational pathway through the delivery of the Junior Development Resource Kit which is designed to ensure children have fun at the beach while participating in lessons that will develop them to become a knowledgeable participant in both lifesaving and sport.

Before the start of the Junior Activities season each child is required to complete a Preliminary Skills Assessment designed to ensure that each child demonstrates a standard of competence in an aquatic environment.
