Nippers

The fun of surf life saving starts when you join Junior Activities (Nippers)!  

Season starts 12th October 2014 and runs until the 28th March 2015   

Conducted mostly on Sunday from 9.30 until 11.30 with one Saturday afternoon per month.

If you’re thinking of introducing your child to lifesaving, then Junior Activities is for you. Junior Activities is open to children from the age five up to 13 years (age for a season is calculated as of midnight September 30). Our club offers a Junior Activities program, all with various styles and sizes. Lifesaving is something for the whole family to get involved in and there are many supporting roles that you can play as a parent of a child involved in Junior Activities.

Surf lifesaving 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.

The program is focused on play, participation and fun. It offers an educational pathway through the delivery of the Junior Development Resource Kit which is designed to ensure children have fun at the beach while participating in lessons that will develop them to become a knowledgeable participant in both lifesaving and sport.

Before the start of the Junior Activities season each child is required to complete a Preliminary Skills Assessment designed to ensure that each child demonstrates a standard of competence in an aquatic environment. For more details on the skills assessment please click here (link to preliminary assessment for juniors).

Our club is committed to ensure the protection, safety and welfare of our young participants and believe that our policies must always place the safety and welfare of children and youth above all other considerations.
Our program runs every Sunday during the season from 9.30am to 11.30am and we encourage everyone to arrive early so we can talk with our parents and our nippers and advise of any upcoming events and even the activities for the day.

Surf sports is one of the cornerstones of the surf lifesaving movement, allowing competitors to pursue a healthy lifestyle and gain recognition for their sporting efforts at the same time. Our club and its members compete at many surf sports carnivals at a local level, a branch level and also at State level. This summer our club’s lifesavers will line up to take on the surf and sand against other clubs and we promise it will be the most exciting season of sport on the beach. Young and old, professionals and beginners alike, will come together delivering a thrilling carnival that you won’t want to miss. There are a range of events to enjoy so see below for an event near you and find your spot on the beach or under a tree, and support your club. Competitors can be from from under-8 to masters (30 years+) and compete in a variety of surf sports activities.
