August! It’s time to add to your diary some important up-and-coming dates.

September brings our sign-ons and as of the first Sunday in October, it’s all systems go with the 2016-2017 RBSLSC Nipper season.

Dates to remember:

Sunday September 18 – Nipper Sign-on Rainbow Beach Aquatic Centre 10.30-noon

Sunday September 25 – Nipper Sign-on Rainbow Beach Aquatic Centre 10.30-noon

Sunday October 2 – First Official Nipper Training Day

We will also be running some pre-season training days during the September holidays for those keen to revise their skills and, in particular, Nippers who wish to compete in the Rainbow Beach Carnival in October. I will advise these dates next month.

With that in mind, I need to call on volunteers to become part of the Junior Activities Team. Whether you have volunteered before or would like to for the first time, any help, in any role, is always greatly appreciated and simply what keeps the program running.

We also run a couple of Bronze camps each year for those of you whom would like to don the orange and become Water Safety officers or even patrol members.

If you are concerned about what is involved in any position, or would like some information, please do not hesitate to ask, the more people we have helping, the lighter the load for those involved.

Positions available;

Age Managers, Assistant Age Managers, Gear (Set-up Pack-up), Break-up Co-ordinator(s) for our two functions per year.

Please contact me on 0408731104 if you have any questions or would like to express your interest in any position. Looking forward to seeing you all in September.
