Competition in Surf Life Saving is a crucial part in your Nippers development. From under 8’s up Nippers have the chance to compete in sanctioned Surf Life Saving events, called Carnivals. Usually held on a Sunday, Carnivals are hosted by different clubs ad area great chance to mix with other kids. Competition covers events such as board paddling, swimming, sprinting, beach flags, Marchpast, R and R and wading.
Events are both individual and team based and your Junior’s Age Group Leader will guide your child through the events. We encourage you, when the time comes to enter your Nipper into the carnivals. Whilst carnivals are based on competition they are all about skill development and being part of the team. Carnivals are not about winning; it’s about your child improving their confidence in the surf or on the beach and having FUN!
This summer we are expecting three official carnivals and the State titles. Carnival cost each child $13.75 and State Titles will cost $44.00. The fee is levied by Surf Life Saving SA for the cost of running the carnival. Your Age Group Leader will confirm with you and your child participation in the carnivals and the State Titles.
Please refer to the junior calendar for dates. The cost of carnivals will be invoiced to you (the club will invoice you exactly what it gets invoiced by SLSSA). Please note however, once your child has been entered in to the carnival, unless they withdraw before the final entry date, they will still be charged.
If you have any questions talk with your Age Group leader or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This summer we look forward to seeing you and your child on the beach.
