NIPPERS

 

From 5-14 years boys and girls can join our Nipper program and learn surf safety skills that may save their lives.  Our Nippers have lots of fun and hang out with friends on Elizabeth Beach each Sunday from October to March each year. Nippers can compete in surf carnivals held locally and in other areas.


The kids are encouraged and instructed in all facets of Nippers including flags, beach sprints, swimming and paddle boards. Our Nippers participate each year at the Branch Carnival. Our program is very relaxed with enjoyment being key to the participation. We cater for all levels of competency.


Each year we have a successful transition of Nippers who have completed SRC to beach patrol, strengthening our club and beach safety program for the future.
