Captain's Message 27 August 2021
Dear Minnows families
SLSNSW has confirmed what we all suspected anyway. All clubs are targeting a 1 December commencement for some Minnows activities although we are not sure what form those activities will take. SLSNSW will review the position with us on 1 October and we will not commence registrations until 1 November 2021 at the earliest. We will, of course, review pricing for the season once we have a better idea of how the season is shaping up.
Minnows offers a fun and active lifestyle choice for children between the ages of 5 and 13, as well as a solid base for learning lifesaving skills and competition in beach activities. Minnows kids are taught everything from sun and surf safety, beach sprints and board paddling, all the way to lifesaving skills, CPR and water rescues.
The Minnows family is not just about the children, it also encompasses “Nipper Parents” who choose to get involved with either teaching beach activities to the kids or who want to achieve their own milestones like completing their Age Managers/Assistants Award or Bronze Medallion.
