junior event calendar


When a carnival is on there will be no nipper programme running at Midway (see calendar for junior surf carnivals).

Age is as of the 1st October (so whatever age they are at midnight September 30, is the age that they compete as in carnivals).


Carnivals are generally for competitors 7 and over. If your child is 6 years old, and they are wanting to take part in the carnival, please check with your coach to see if they have the necessary skills and the water confidence to do so as they will be competing in the under 8 age group.

The competing ages are under 8, under 9, under 10, under 11, under 12, under 13 and under 14. 


The only compulsory components for our carnivals are the club cap and a fluro vest. These can be purchased on Sunday mornings from the Nipper Crew. See uniform for more info.
