It’s been delayed but we are nearly ready to start another Nippers season!
I’d like to begin by sending out a huge welcome to our new members – especially our U6s as they start their first season with us.

We again find ourselves operating in a Covid-19 impacted environment. We appreciate
everyone’s patience and help in complying with the current public health orders.
All parents and carers above the age of 16 must be fully vaccinated to attend Nippers.

As always, at Bilgola SLSC, our highest priority is the safety of you and your family.

The following sections detail start of season events and some exciting enhancements
we have made to the Nipper program this year.

Welcome for New Members this Sunday

All new members are invited to a welcome tour of the club and introduction to the Nipper program at 10:00am this Sunday 31st of October. Meet in the BBQ area of the club. You’ll meet the Junior committee, learn about our wonderful club and facilities, and have any questions on the upcoming Nipper season answered.


Water proficiencies for U8s to U13s will be held between 8am and 11am this Sunday 31st of October. Times for individual age groups are below:

  • U13 : 8:00am

Nippers Start

Nippers will start with a Twilight session and BBQ the following week on November 7th. As per last year we will run two split sessions:

U6s-U9s : 3:00-4:00pm

U10s-U13s: 4:30-5:30pm

We will then revert to morning sessions up until the Xmas party which will be a Twilight session on the 12th December.

What's New This Season

The Junior Committee have been busy in the off season working on several new initiatives.

We’ll send out a final pre Nippers email next week.   Follow us on Instagram to be notified of the latest news and updates.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the beach!
