Swanny Nippers and Juniors
Nippers is a program that introduces children aged 5 to 13 to surf lifesaving. It is a fun outdoor activity that grows a child’s confidence, teaches valuable life skills and surf knowledge.
Our Junior program caters for 14-17 year olds and runs alongside nippers on Sunday mornings. Our Junior activities support our teenaged members as they move towards becoming qualified patrolling and competing members.
The youth of today are the future of Surf Life Saving, and the Nippers pathway teaches lessons and skills allowing them to continue in lifesaving and sport as they grow older. Nippers is a great way for children to make friends, be active and enjoy the beach in a safe environment. It is also a great activity all the family can be involved in.
Nippers at Swanny Surf Club runs every Sunday morning 8.45-10am from late October until end of March, with a break over the Christmas period and public holiday weekends.
NOTE: under 6 to under 13 nippers (as per age at 30/9/17) almost full. Registrations close 17th December 2017. Please Contact Us for more details.
(Bathers and rash vests can be purchased from the Clothing Officer online or contact the Club Administrator – Contact Us).
Parents allocated to water safety are required to have their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) or Bronze Medallion.
