Before a child can participate in any Nipper's event, they must complete the Preliminary Skills Evaluation.
This proficiency is conducted out on registration days at the Maroubra Seals club. Other opportunities may be arranged early in the season by special arrangement.
To maintain safety and lifesaving standards, SLSA has set a minimum level of proficiency that Nipper members must achieve before being eligible to compete in carnivals.
Children will have the opportunity to complete this Competition Skills Evaluation during the first few weeks of Nippers.
