Nippers

Nippers is about learning new skills, gaining confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the 'tests' of swimming, board paddling, beach sprinting, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and discovering things about themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The skills gained at Nippers will stick to the soul like sand from the beach and be carried for life.

 

Nippers is a junior activities program that introduces children aged 5 to 13 to surf lifesaving. It is a fun outdoors activity that develops a child’s confidence, teaches valuable life skills and safety knowledge. Most surf life saving clubs offer a Nippers program, even though the size and style of the activity may vary from club to club.

 

The youth of today are the future of Surf Life Saving and the Nippers pathway teaches lessons and skills which allow young people to continue in lifesaving and sport as they grow older.

 

But it’s not all hard work. We like to call it serious fun! Nippers is a great way for children to make friends, be active and enjoy the beach in a safe environment.
