What is Nippers?
Nippers is a fun, educational and healthy summer activity for all the family. Life Saving is an amazing activity for developing a child’s confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment. Your child will learn to enjoy our beaches and keep them safe as well as making new friends and having a great time!
Nippers is a training ground for future lifesavers and activities are aimed at building lifesaving and leadership skills. Membership is open to all children aged from 5 – 13 (age taken as at the 30th of September).
Each Sunday during the nipper season, parents and helpers assist with beach and water activities targeting each age group.
We encourage all parents to play an active role in the Nippers program to make it a more enjoyable experience for yourself and your children. There are many ways you can be involved … as an Age Manager, Age Manager’s assistant, Water Safety Officer or BBQ helper.
Please be aware that Nippers is not a learn-to-swim program.
Nippers must wear Sunscreen (to be provided by parents), a rash vest and Cap (purchased from the Club). Please ensure your child has their drink bottle (named clearly) that can be put in the Age Group tub that is moved around the beach with them.
Nippers' is an activity-based program run to educate young children about water safety and awareness when visiting a beach or aquatic environment.
The nipper program also offers the participants the opportunity to meet a new set of friends whilst they are being challenged in activities controlled within a learning environment.
Through a fun and enjoyable delivery from our qualified instructors nippers are encouraged to learn about lifesaving.
Naturally each session is followed by a Sausage Sizzle
