We will have a new merchandise and uniform model for 2022/2023 Season. There will be no longer a retail store on site at Freshie next season.
All uniform purchases will be made on-line with strict cut-off pre order dates. Everyone will need to be a little more organised.
The new on-line uniform shop is planned to be open by early August. The first pre-order cut-off date is 6 Sept to meet pre-season deliveries.
We will keep a small stock of essential items on site (hi vis and nipper caps).
More information to follow. Please stay tuned.
U6’s & U7’s must purchase an age cap. Rash vests are optional but long & short sleeve are available for purchase.
U8’s must purchase a new coloured Age Group cap & a pink Hi Vis Rashie (options are vest, short sleeve or long sleeve)
U9’s to U14’s must wear a Hi Vis vest/rashie and Age Cap.
We have lots of swimwear options for girls and boys. Freshie Club swimwear is not essential for Sunday nipper activities, but if you nipper wants to compete in carnivals, it is expected that they will wear club branded swimwear to support the team.
Nippers that plan to attend water training must purchase a ‘training’ cap which is orange.
Nippers that plan to compete in carnivals must purchase a competition/quarter cap to represent our club.

How can I help?
We always require parental assistance. Being involved improves your Nipper’s experience as well.
In the early years, U6- U8 parents are welcomed as Age Managers or Assistant Age Managers. These are larger age groups and it is great und to get involved on Sunday mornings.
As your nipper enters the U9 and above Age Groups, they have the opportunity to train for and compete in carnivals if they are competitive, otherwise regular Nipper Activities always need parents. For those parents of competitive Nippers, we require water safety to assist at training and carnivals, officials at carnivals, coaching assistance, and of course help on Junior Activities Committee where there are regularly roles that would benefit from more volunteers.
We will be conducting proficiency swims for U8-U12 Nippers in September 2022, shortly after registration closes. It is essential you have access to TeamApp for confirmation of dates and bookings. Swim Proficiencies are essential for your Nipper to progress and participate in the program.
The proficiency swim for U13-U14 Nippers will be held during the first Sunday Nippers. U6-U7 do not need to complete a proficiency swim.
U8 – 25m pool swim – no time limit
U9 & U10 – 200m pool swim – 6 minute limit
U11-U14 – 200m pool swim – 5 minute limit
If you have any other questions in regard to the registration process, email the Secretary – firstname.lastname@example.org
