Pre-States Nipper Info

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Thank you Wes Gould for giv­ing our pre-states nip­pers an insight to your race prepa­ra­tion, ways you go about com­pet­ing and rac­ing, and for answer­ing ques­tions from the floor at the Nip­pers Play­ers Tea.


Below is some infor­ma­tion to assist you with the logis­tics for the week­end.


Fri­day FLAGS at SCARBOROUGH — only qual­i­fied indi­vid­u­als and reserves need to attend Sat­ur­day and Sun­day at Trigg – begin­ning with March past, with Corey Bar­tle the proud flag bear­er, grand parade and award pre­sen­ta­tions to the Junior Achiev­ers on Sat­ur­day, fol­lowed by water and beach events depend­ing on age group.

Sun­day begins with 1km beach run for under 11 upward, and then water and beach events con­tin­ue.

Jes­per will be tak­ing five tents down to the car­ni­val on Sat­ur­day morn­ing. He has a Ford Explor­er (sil­ver) and will be up in the car park.
Each age group needs to take a tent down as fol­lows:
Under 11’s — take to beach are­na and erect there
Under 12’s — one for male are­na and one for female are­na
Under 10’s — one for male are­na and one for female are­na

Tents can remain up, or maybe take just cov­ers off, or dis­man­tle tent but leave in posi­tion on Sat­ur­day night (SLSWA have organ­ised overnight secu­ri­ty).

Sun­day — each age group to dis­man­tle tents as fol­lows, and take back up to car park to Jesper’s car.
Under 12’s from beach are­na
Under 13’s one each from male and female are­nas
Under 11’s one each from male and female are­nas

Water safety roster

We require four water safe­ty and one IRB per­son­nel per shift.
Our shifts are:
Sat­ur­day 8.30am to 11am, under 10 female water are­na
Sun­day 11am to fin­ish, under 11 male are­na

If you are able to assist, please con­tact your age group man­ag­er.

Tubes will be avail­able brought down by Jes­per with tents and left near water safe­ty sign in van.

Yellow vests

Spare yel­low vests are avail­able for com­peti­tors who did not go to qual­i­fiers but are doing team events this week­end.
