NIPPER NEWS - WEEK 17

                           
                
Thank you to all our Nipper families for a wonderful season at Bronte!! What a great time we have had. It has been fantastic to watch all the kids learn new skills, challenge themselves, gain confidence, make new friends and have a terrific, surf-aware and surf-safe time at the beach! Congratulations to all our U14s who have now graduated from Nippers and move into the senior Club. We look forward to seeing you all in your yellow and red patrol uniforms, and continuing your involvement in all that is on offer at Bronte. Thank you to everyone who formed the graduation tunnel on Sunday and to the U13s who, in a Bronte first, served breakfast to our U14s on their last day!

We look forward to seeing you all back at Bronte next season. In the meantime - enjoy the Sunday sleep-ins!

A reminder that it's Presentation Day this Sunday. At presentation day we celebrate the season, thank our Age Managers and present a number of awards. These include 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each age group, a Club Spirit award for each age group, a Junior Life Saver award for each age group, and an overall water and sand competitor award.

 

SECONDHAND BOARD SALE, Sunday 17th March

If you're keen to sell an old Nipper board, bring it down to presentation day on Sunday. Stick a note to it with your name, number and a price. Eager buyers await! The most likely display spot will be at the top of the stairs, or in front of the office if the BBQ is upstairs.

It's time for a well deserved rest for most of our training squads! Jo Mermaids Beginner Boards group will continue until the end of Term 1, so make sure to join in while the water is warm.

Keep an eye on TeamApp for ongoing beginners board sessions to be run by Jo Mermaid's Mermaid Swim Academy while the water is warm.
Jason Gavin will also be running some beginner longboard sessions for our U13s who have previously trained with the Competition Squad. See session times on TeamApp.
