Nipper Sea/Beach training is not about teaching your child how to swim but rather teaching your child Surf Lifesaving skills.

These skills are taught in a competitive format and all Nippers get to display skills gained at competition in august.


Nipper membership is primarily dependent on:

  1. Competitors being confident in the open water.
  2. Competitors being able to swim approx. 100m front crawl, with face mainly in the water breathing to the side.
  3. Competitors committing to competing for their club at the Regional and National competitions (if they qualify for the National competition).

Registration will be through ClubZap. More info. on that to follow.
