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.”
