Nippers

Surf Life Saving Sydney Junior activites caters for more that 6,7000 young surf lifesavers, delivered via our fifteen surf clubs from North Bondi to Burning Palms in the National Park. Commonly known as "nippers", these members learn the following skills.
  • Lifesaving skills, CPR, and surf rescue skills
  • Surf safety and awareness, including how to identify rips
  • Surf Sports skills, such as how to catch a wave when swimming, paddling a board
  • Personal development and leadership skills, including teamwork and improving self confidence
Making up over one third of our membership, nippers are not only our future but they are our "young lifesavers in training".
 
Nippers covers the age groups from 5 to 13 years of age and is run between October and March at each of our clubs. This usually occurs on a Sunday morning from around 8:45 am for a couple of hours.
