What is Nippers?
Nippers is open to all Bermagui SLSC club members aged between 6 and 13.

 Whether your child is a talented athlete or someone with a fear of
water, Nippers provides a place for them to have fun, make friendships
and develop skills in surf survival. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by participating in beach activities such as swimming, body surfing, board skills, beach sprints, flags and surf awareness. They also learn skills such as body boarding, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip and first aid.
 Activities are designed to introduce your child to the surf and build up their confidence so that they learn to enjoy and respect the sea.
There are a series of carnivals throughout the season that Nippers can choose to compete in. The skills gained in Nippers will be carried for life!
Nippers Program for 2016/17
We Need Your Help
As always, we can't run a successful Nippers program without the help of parents and members.  If everyone pitches in we'll be able to provide a fantastic experience for our young members.
For every nippers session we need:
  • Age Managers - to direct age groups to their activities and assist with activities
  • General Helpers - to assist with the setting up and packing up of activities
  • Water Safety – to assist the kids to take part in water activities in a safe environment
  • BBQ Helpers – to set up, cook and sell sausage sangers and drinks
If you are able to lend a hand in any of the above areas please email to let us know where you think you can help.
