Unfortunately due to an unexpected number of under 6 and 7 nippers we are unable to accept any more nippers in the under 6 and 7 categories this season.
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.
In addition to gaining vital surf safety and awareness skills the nippers learn basic carries, first aid and resuscitation skills.
For those nippers interested, the program also introduces the competitive side of lifesaving.
The Nipper Program will run:
November 23rd - Welcome Night
November 30, 2012
December 7, 14, 21, 28
February 1, 8, 15, 22
March 1, 8,
March 15th - Presentation Night
* As most of our members and Nipper Coordinators take holidays over the Christmas break, there will be no normal Nipper sessions during the month of January. However, if Age Managers for your group are not on holidays and they want to run session for your group, they will contact you and advise you.
