Club Championships are a fun, ‘mini’ carnival held at our beach on four allocated Saturdays (Twilight Champs) and Sundays during the Nipper season. This is a great way for nippers who are not familiar with carnivals or prefer not to do competition, to participate in the various events.
All nippers, U8 – U14 are eligible and events include wading, sprints, flags, swim, board, iron and RSR (run/swim/run). Age Champions (1st, 2nd, 3rd) are awarded for boys and girls in each group. Winners are determined by a point score held at each club championship round. The best 3 results from the 4 rounds will be used.
Nippers are to ATTEND AT LEAST 11 NIPPER SUNDAYS in order to be eligible for Age Champion.
If you miss a Sunday because you are competing at a carnival representing WBPSLSC, this is counted as attendance. If you have any questions, please talk to your Age Manager.
The following events are applicable to the different age groups:
U/8 – Flags, Sprint, Wade
U9 – U10 – Flags, Sprint, Swim, Board, Wade
U11 – U14 – Flags, Sprint, Swim, Board, Ironperson, RSR (run/swim/run)
Points are accrued for attendance each week and for final placings in events at club champs. The points allocation is as such:
1st Place = 6 points
2nd Place = 5 points
3rd Place = 4 points
4th Place = 3 points
5th Place = 2 points
Participation = 1 point
Attendance = 1 point
Club Champions will be announced at the end of the season in our Junior Presentation (Saturday, 21st March 2020).
During this celebration of the season, awards and perpetual trophies will also be awarded for various achievements.
