It has been a very busy start to the season with lots of nipper action at the beach and competition in full swing. Thanks to you all, South Maroubra is once again the LARGEST nipper club in AUSTRALIA! With over 1100 nippers including cadets, congratulations to you all for joining the best club in the east.
We are so thankful to all of our volunteers for running this great program. Nothing makes me happier than seeing our cadets helping out with the younger age groups, volunteering their time to teaching others what they have learned.
INTRODUCING OUR JUNIOR CLUB CAPTAINS & NIPPER COMMITTEE FOR THE 2023/2024 SEASON
We are also very excited to introduce the Nipper Club Captains for season 2023/2024,
Ffyon McCabe & Isaac Kerry.
They are supported by their amazing Nipper Committee: Dominic Smith, Owen Lloyd-Jones, Owen Roorda, Clementine Saunders & Piper Ellis. We look forward to seeing them assist around the club.
2023 NSW INTERBRANCH CHAMPIONSHIPS
We are also very excited to announce that some of our very own nipper & cadet athletes have been selected to be a part of the Sydney Branch Team to compete at the 2023 NSW Interbranch Championships to be held at Fingal Bay Beach Hunter Branch on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd December 2023. It is a great honor to be selected for this team as it represents the best athletes in Surf Life Saving Sydney Branch. In 2022 the Sydney Branch Team were crowned the NSW Interbranch Champions. It is a great experience for athletes to travel and compete with their fellow athletes from Sydney Branch.
Congratulations to the following athletes:
U15 - Dylan Sharpe, Christopher Kondilios
U14 - Rory Muldowney, Ryan McNamara, Marli Mayne
U13 - Dewa Putu Krishna Inder, Katahra Boyle-Raniga, Emily Maxwell

SOUTH MAROUBRA U8 NIPPER CARNIVAL
This month we also hosted our annual U8 Nipper Challenge carnival. Many Sydney Branch clubs participated in the carnival which was great to see. This carnival is a great introduction for our U8 nippers that are interested in the competition side of Surf Life Saving. The nippers took part in events including wade, flags, sprints, relays and 500m soft sand run. A massive thank you to all of our officials, water safety, BBQ crew, registration crew & volunteers for all of your help with running such a successful event.
The last nipper session for this year will be on Sunday 24th December. Mark it in your diaries. It's going to be a fantastic Xmas celebration with our annual Xmas Scramble, visit from Santa, BBQ, and much much more. More information to come out closer to the date.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the beach.
