IT'S that time of year again when the football boots and netball shoes you bought in March are starting to become too small for your little sporting star.

The days are getting longer and the sun is rising higher in the sky and that means it's time to ditch the jersey, throw away the netball bib and put the hockey stick away for a few months because it's time for the 2014-2015 nipper season.

Lifesavers are preparing for another big summer and even though it seems not that long ago the last trip to the beach was made it's time to sign up at one of the three local clubs.

Moore Park, Elliott Heads and Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Clubs (SLSC) are all searching for the next Ky Hurst, Courtney Hancock, Naomi Flood or even a local talent like Matthew Davis.

September 7 and 14 (11am-1pm) are the dates for Bundaberg SLSC sign on, Moore Park opens its doors August 31 and September 7 (9am-noon) and Elliott Heads' sign on dates are August 31 (9am-noon) and September 14 (9am-11am) at the Bundaberg Swim Academy.
