Mackay SLSC Nippers Ready for Tri-Series

Harbour Beach will come alive in a show of surf skills on Saturday 27 February.

The Tri-Series competition is a collaborative initiative reached between Mackay, Sarina and Eimeo surf lifesaving clubs in order to work together to further develop surf skills and lifesaving skills in junior members within our region.

Junior Activity Co-Coordinator Josh Grant said the region has its final Club Championship Tri-Series on Saturday, 27 February starting at 2pm, at Mackay SLSC at Harbour Beach.  

“This will see the culmination of the surf lifesaving season in the lead up to the State Titles at North Kirra on the Gold Coast from the 12-14 March,” Mr Grant said.

“The Tri-Series will involve approximately 150- 200 competitors ranging from U6 to open competitors that will come together to hone their surf skills.

“All three clubs headed down to the Yeppoon carnival on the 7 February, which saw our clubs take on the best of the best of our region, which was a great learning experience for all involved.

“Mackay SLSC will be hosting both clubs and will have a canteen and bar open to all participants as well as members of the public and look forward to as many community members as possible to come along and enjoy a great day at the beach.”

He added that as part of the club’s continual nipper development, they have been mentoring and training parents in the important roles of age managers, which lead an age group through nipper activities.  

“We would like to sincerely thank Macrossan & Amiet Solicitors for providing grants so that our age managers have recognisable shirts and can be identified by our nippers.

“We would also like to thank Key Solutions Group who have just recently provided a shade shelter for nippers and parents to sit under to be the heat.  This will be a great addition to our lifesaving resources.”
