After several weeks of competition for the under-8 to under 14 Peregian nippers, it was a wonderful time to kick back on a slightly overcast day last Sunday and have some fun in the water.

The conditions were perfect again as the nippers indulged some extra activities. The under-11s had the “world title” play off between parents and nippers to decide who could do the most push ups in 30 seconds.

The under-6 and under-7 green caps arguably had even more fun, building a boat out of sand and then jumping in as quickly as they could.

The under-13s and under-14s were involved in the important process of learning CPR and how to act in the most professional and safe way.

The under-9 yellow caps are now gaining confidence with the nipper boards and are venturing out beyond the break and experiencing the enjoyment of catching waves.

The under-10 blue caps are now starting to focus on completing more swims and board paddles and gain the confidence that was lacking from last year with such a terrible season.

The Peregian red caps are really enjoying the sprint and flags under the direction of teams coach Dale Cashman.

This Sunday will be our last nippers day for 2008 so make sure you are all in the Christmas spirit as we are going to have lots of fun activities for children and parents.

Nominations are due on Sunday for next year’s Alexandra Headland teams carnival for under-8 – under-10 nippers.

Have a great week and see you all on Sunday for beach Christmas fun.
