With the SRC completed they can choose to join our patrol teams as support members or assist with water-safety during Nipper activities

* U6 Note: Children must be 5 years by 30 September 2023 before they can join Nippers.  They can still start nippers later in the season, as they turn 5, but they will then stay in the U6 group the following season as well. This is a national standard across all clubs.

As we are a small club, we combine several ages in activity groups depending on the number of children registered each season
