Balmoral Nippers is usually oversubscribed. We therefore ask that all registrants be sure that they’re happy to sign up to the commitment to attend all the sessions through to the end of the season and participate in the Nippers activities each week (including going in the water with the kids).
If you're comfortable with this, great! Here's the process:
Step 1: Register on the website
You can register on the website all year round. Go ahead and register now if you'd like to enrol for the next program, and we'll keep you informed by email when the enrolment window is about to open.
Step 2: Enrol for the program
Each July, a two week window opens to enrol for the program that commences that October. Emails are sent to registered members of the website in advance advising the precise dates for enrolment. Enrolment takes place on this website. If your family participated the previous year, you pay immediately as part of the enrolment process and you're then enrolled for the program. If you did not participate the previous year, you're entered into the ballot process.
Step 3: Ballot
Once the enrolment window has closed, we then conduct the random ballot to allocate the remaining places. Successful applicants are informed by email and invited to complete payment immediately. After all places are paid for, unsuccessful applicants are informed by email and the ballot closes. If you’re not successful, we’re truly sorry, and wish you the best of luck for next year.
Why can't I get in ?
Unfortunately this is a common question, which comes down to popularity of the program and luck. We have endeavoured to explain the circumstances here
