Assistance Required – The successful running of Nippers requires assistance from everybody. As a member of the club and parent of a nipper there is in expectation to assist with tasks such as beach set up/pack up, gear cleaning, supervision, bbq duty etc. Rosters are being prepared in this regard with the bbq not likely kicking off for a few weeks yet.

Specific roles – We do have a number of more specific roles that need filling such as recorder (who helps our club registrar in preparing age group roles and entering proficiencies), junior secretary, end of season presentation co-ordinator, bbq co-ordinator and age manager’s. If you are able to assist or have any questions please come forward.

Boards Any member who may have a nipper board on loan at the moment – these need to be returned to the clubhouse as soon as possible for inspection ahead of the season start.

See you on the beach
