Surf life saving is an amazing activity for growing a child’s confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment. Not only will your child have fun and meet new friends, they will become part of an iconic organisation that has served the Australian community for over 100 years.
Not only is Nippers a fun way for children aged 5 to 13 to enjoy the beach in a safe environment, it also offers children an educational pathway through the Junior Development Program. This program is designed to ensure children have fun at the beach while participating in lessons that will pathway them to becoming a fully rounded participant in lifesaving, community spirit and sport – we like to call it ‘Serious Fun’.
The juniors of today are the future of surf life saving and that is not lost on the thousands of volunteer Age Group Managers, Nipper Coordinators and other support personnel that look after Nippers every summer. Every club in Australia offers a nippers program, all with various styles and sizes.
