Nippers dive into new waters

Coolum Surf Life Saving Club’s nippers had their last Noosa activities day for this season on Sunday.

The decision to head to Noosa once a month was a very wise one.

The water conditions at Noosa have enabled our older children to get in much-needed board paddling practice and our younger children, extra confidence in the water.

While there are sometimes parking issues, the trip north of Coolum has been well worth the effort and enjoyed by both nippers and their parents.

The weather has not let us down at Noosa, and this week was no exception.

The water was gloriously warm and a welcome retreat from the humidity.

Photos for the under-6 to under-10 nippers will be taken this coming Sunday.

If you haven’t already handed in your forms, please ensure you have done so. The form must be in, with the correct money in an envelope, by 8am on Sunday to Chris, who will also have extra forms.

Children must be in correct uniforms for the photos. Late arrivals will not be in the team photos.

There will be no nipper activities on Sunday, February 8 due to the Nutri-Grain Iron Man Challenge being held at Coolum Beach.

Nipper activities resume at Coolum Beach on Sunday, February 15, when photos will be taken of the under-11 to under-14 nippers.

For more information, phone Paul Hampson on 0428 181 766.
