THE Nippers season is soon to kick off for 2012-13 and registrations have started.
A welcome barbecue and registration session will be held on Sunday, October 7 at 8am at the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Club in Booner Street, Hawks Nest.
This will be followed by the first nippers’ session of the season at 9am.
The nippers program is held on Sunday mornings at Hawks Nest beach and caters for children aged from five to 14 years.
The program for under sixes and sevens is sand-based, with activities such as flag races, surf awareness and tug-of-war.
For eight years and up water-based activities and competitions begin, with board and swim races.
Nicole Young, who runs the program, said this year she hoped to take the nippers to a few district carnivals.
“Nippers is a way to learn about water safety in a fun environment,” Young said.
