Narrabeen Nippers Newsletter Season 2018/19- Week 2

Hi to all Parents and Nippers welcome to week 2.

What a great start to the new season and all the nippers made it through proficiencies. This week we start nippers on beach including water activities.

This Week:

  • Club will be open from 8:30 am until 10.00am for last minute registrations and cossy purchases.
  • The BBQ and Kiosk will be offering coffee, Bacon and Egg Rolls from 8:30 am.
  • Nippers kicks off at 9:30 am SHARP, please be lined up at 9.15am.
  • Please make sure all children have a drink bottle and sun screen on before starting.

Assistance Needed

We need some people to help with the running of nippers. This doesn’t take up much time its more so everything runs smoothly. Remember we are all volunteers if more people help the job is easier. We are looking for people to help with:

  • Narrabeen Nippers Carnival – this happens each year in January and we need to start planning now. If you can help with the planning we will be meeting shortly (will be posted on Facebook and via emails) so let me know is you can help
  • Carnivals – throughout the season some of our nippers attend carnivals at other beaches. For this to happen we need officials at the carnivals otherwise our nippers can not compete. If you like to become an official please contact me
  • Weekly BBQ – As most of you are aware, each week we run a BBQ over the morning during the Nippers Season. This is a great fundraiser for the club and also very popular with the families to enjoy after a morning at Nippers. Each week would like volunteers to assist Claire. This year we will doing it by age group. Just need a 20 minute shift from a couple of parents and everyone is fed and you still get to watch nippers. The first age group will be under 5/6 starting this week (28th)

Last Minute Proficiencies

I will be at North Narrabeen rock pool from 8.15amISH until 8.45am if you could not make it last weekend and need to complete your proficiencies. THIS IS ONLY FOR UNDER 9 TO UNDER 13

Labelling / Lost Property

Mums and Dads: Please make sure that all Nippers clothing is clearly labelled using permanent marker with your child’s name especially the Nippers Cap and Hi Vis top. The lost property is near the board storage area.


A reminder the parking area behind the club is paid parking and patrolled by council. Our friendly council come along most weeks and book people, please read the signs to ensure you don’t get fined.

We are keeping Nippers Registrations open at Narrabeen for the time being as some clubs have closed off theirs and if you know of anyone that has missed out then bring them along.

So I’m looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday.

Let’s hope for great weather and calm seas.

Have a look at our new Facebook page where we will post updates and pics of events.
