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.
