COOLANGATTA Surf Life Saving Club will hold a number of nipper sign-up days in the coming weeks and the club calls on kids interested in joining the Crocs (under 6-7) and the Nippers (under 8-14) to come to South Tweed Indoor Pool on Sunday, August 19, with a parent or guardian and enrol.

The sign-up day will run from 9.30am until 11.30am and will be repeated on Sunday, August 26, and September 9 at the same location and times.

Club policy dictates a parent or guardian needs to sign up together with the new croc or nipper and accompany their youngster to weekly get-togethers held every Sunday from 7.45am until about 10.30am at the Coolangatta Surf Club.

Parents have a range of options to become involved including becoming an official, a patrolling member, team/age manager or water safety person.

New members will need to complete a pool swim, however, apart from a pair of swimmers, no gear or equipment is needed.

Costs vary depending on age and past club activities with families consisting of parents and an unlimited number of kids charged $200, individual crocs charged $30, individual nippers charged $55, associate members charged $80 and active seniors charged $65.

The season will start on September 30 and runs until March 17 next year.

For more information contact Coolangatta Nippers secretary, Renee Hogben on 0409 208 274.
