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.
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.
Surf Ed. This is the educational part of Nippers. Beginning with simple things such as the meaning of flags and progressing to resuscitation and lifesaving skills, this part of surf lifesaving must be taken seriously. Each age group between U8 and U14 has material to learn in order to gain the appropriate progressive certificates completing the Surf Rescue Certificate in the U/14 group, then progressing onto Patrol Members.
Nipper point scores are held on a fortnightly basis on Sunday mornings
