This morning we presented 8 of our nippers with a haul of medals that they won at the North Barrier Branch Championships which included 8 clubs from Sarina to Townsville.
For these nippers who love the surf sports aspect, they train anywhere from 3 to 6 times per week in a number of disciplines which includes pool swimming, board training, ironperson training and beach (flags and sprints) – Now that is the fitness 🏃♀️🏄♂️🏊♂️🏋️♀️
5 of our nippers/youth from under 11s to 15 were also selected in the North Barrier Branch Youth Team who will travel to the Sunshine Coast in March to Compete at the QLD Youth State Titles
Welcome to the January issue of the Nipper Newsletter! We hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas, a happy new year, and enjoyed some downtime over the holiday period. Clubs are starting to get back into the swing of things, with plenty of nippers already hitting the beach for the first sessions of 2020.
If you have any feedback or would like to contribute to the Nipper Newsletter, please contact the SLSQ Membership Development Team on firstname.lastname@example.org or (07) 3846 8000.

The State Junior Activities Advisory Panel (JAAP) will be meeting in February.
The purpose of the State JAAP is to provide representation to our largest portion of membership at the State Membership Services Committee (MSC). The JAAP makes recommendations to the MSC, and provide valuable insight on decisions that are made for our members.
If you have anything that needs to be brought to the attention of the State JAAP, please speak with your club’s Junior Activities Chairperson who, in turn, will speak to the relevant Branch Junior Activities Chairperson.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AROUND THE STATE
Clubs enjoyed some downtime over the holiday period and most branches took advantage by conducting membership development programs across various regions including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, and North Barrier. There were also a number of club-based camps run throughout holidays to keep everyone active and out of their parents’ hair!
