Welcome to Coogee Minnows Season 2017-2018

Coogee Minnows is Australia’s longest continually running Junior Surf Lifesaving Club, celebrated 50 years of Nippers in 2013-14, and is a dynamic part of the Coogee Surf Lifesaving Club community.

Still subject to change, but our initial season calendar is available here.




Coogee SLSC has a proud tradition in competition. It is a fun way to develop our kids skills and talents and also to make lasting friendships. The Minnows Competition Coordinator and many volunteers have put considerable effort into updating and revising the Club’s competition agenda and policy which is detailed in this document.
