Surf Club Registrations
Surf Life Saving NSW has been fortunate enough to partner with Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney for the past three seasons to bring you the Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers Program – a surf education program which brings the beach to the children of Western Sydney!
In the 2016-17 season for the Sydney Wet 'n' Wild Nippers program we will be conducting a longer season running over several Sundays starting in October and finishing in March. Please see the proposed dates below.
Each week we need approximately 50 suitably qualified Water Safety personnel and Age Manager Assistants to come and volunteer alongside our Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nipper parents. All volunteers must be proficient in at least one award (e.g. SRC or Bronze Medallion).
So why not get a group together and come down to Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney and spend some time with us as we introduce Surf Life Saving to a whole new generation of kids growing up away from the beach! Dates are first in, first served, so make sure you fill in the below form ASAP to secure your preferred date.
Proposed Season Dates
With the start of the patrol season many clubs are requesting to book a tentative date for the 2016-17 season. The dates below are the proposed dates (we are working with Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney to finalise these dates as soon as possible and will publish an update once available).
- October - 16, 23 and 30
- November - 13, 20 and 27
- December - 11
- January - 22
- February - 5, 12 and 19
- March - 19
Dual Membership with Coastal Clubs
A new dimension to the Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers program is to encourage members to have dual membership with a coastal club to allow the Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers try out some of their new skills on a regular basis, ultimately providing a pathway to further develop their surf skills beyond the Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers program. We would expect Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers to attend their coastal club on 6 November, 4 December, and 26 February and join in their Age Group for a normal Nippers session. Sydney Wet’n’Wild Nippers is not held on 18 December, 1 and 29 January, and 4 and 11 March, and - if Nippers is being held at the club those days - dual members would be invited to attend Nippers at the coastal club.
Sydney Wet ‘n’ Wild Nippers is a community club, so all Nippers competition rights would be with the coastal club, allowing the Nippers to compete at local carnivals or in Branch or State championships.
If your club is interested in getting involved in this program, please email your expression of interest.
