We need 10 parents to help out running arena’s. Wendy and Jo will organise this. Heath will need a hand to get the boards off the trailer and put the tent up.

The carnival begins with a march past, our kids need to be in Fitzroy caps, black shorts or Fitzroy togs, blue tops (if you have them) and pink vests. Its important that we look smart.


Your kids with their NZSLS number written in vivid on their arm and leg- we have vivids for you to use but please have your numbers written somewhere (a note in your phone is a great idea) as we do not have the time to look up everyones number.

Your kids must have a pink vest and a Fitzroy cap.

Also bring togs / t shirts / rashies / sweatshirts etc if you have them and wetsuits.

Warm clothes, drinks, sun hats, two towels, snacks and lunch, a jacket, suncream, a big bag or plastic bin to keep gear in.

Family and supporters to watch and cheer the kids on.

During the carnival, your child will compete against the children from other clubs in a range of events. Your child’s group will have parents in charge. Coaches will be asking parents to help supervise groups so please be aware that your services might be called upon – please help out. Please let your group leader know if you are leaving the beach as they will be doing regular head counts.
See you all soon
