The club owns some amazing and very expensive gear. Nippers will be allocated with gear to use throughout the season and as their skills progress both at the beach and in the pool they will be able to use more advanced equipment. BUT it is the responsibility of the nipper to look after this gear. Always carry the gear correctly (they will be taught how), never drag it and always clean it and put it away in the correct place.
Outside of session times, nippers can access the gear by seeking permission from the patrol captain (please note, permission may not always be granted). The nippers vest MUST be worn in the water at all times when using club gear.
