Young nip­pers from clubs all over the state will con­verge on Coogee Beach for the com­pe­ti­tion’s open­ing round, which caters for chil­dren in the U10 through to U13 age cat­e­gories.

Com­peti­tors will be put through their paces in events in­clud­ing a 1km beach run, swim race, re­lays, board res­cues, sprints and beach flags.

Coogee Beach SLSC mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor Jen­nie Fer­raro said they were ex­pect­ing more than 1500 peo­ple to con­verge on the beach for the com­pe­ti­tion.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity for the chil­dren to meet other com­peti­tors from other clubs and test their ath­letic abil­ity,” she said.

“It is also a great op­por­tu­nity for the club to host the first Sun­smart Nip­pers car­ni­val of the sea­son, as it gives the club the op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce com­pet­ing nip­pers to rather flat, un­daunt­ing wa­ter con­di­tions and the op­por­tu­nity to show­case our fa­cil­i­ties, which we be­lieve are the best along the WA coast.

“Peo­ple should come along to the event so they can see just how good our young West Aus­tralian nip­pers are; they are quite a re­mark­able bunch and love a chal­lenge.

“If you have young chil­dren and are think­ing about get­ting them in­volved in surf life­sav­ing, this is a great op­por­tu­nity to see what it’s all about.”
