Daniel Booth, Keira Powers, Josie Booth, Sarah Booth, Maia Booth – all ready for the 2020-2021 Nippers season!

The Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club is gearing up for the start of the 2020-21 Nippers season!

The first Sunday of Nippers is set to start on Sunday October 4, 2020 and there is still time to join.

Last month, two sign-on days were held to welcome both returning and new families to complete the necessary swim evaluation and register for the season.

The first sign-on day was held in Gympie at the Gympie Aquatic Centre and the second one in Rainbow Beach at Rainbow Shores.

While many of the children had not been in the pool for months and some were feeling a little nervous or rusty, over 40 children took part in the sign-on days.

The parents are thankful for the return of Nippers, given that many other sporting programs have not yet restarted since the COVID-related restrictions came into play.

Surf Life Saving Queensland has developed COVID-safe operating procedures to allow us to start the 2020-21 season and while things won’t look exactly the same as before we are grateful to have the opportunity to keep the kids active and having fun while learning critical water safety and first-aid.

The Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club would like to sincerely thank the Rainbow Shores Body Corporate for their generosity in allowing the Nippers to use one of their pools for the swim evaluations.

If you missed the sign-on days but are still keen to join please get in touch with Natasha on 0444 579 887 or via the Rainbow Beach Nippers Facebook group page.
