North Entrance Surf Lifesaving Club

What are Nippers (Jnr Activities) ?

Junior Activities Life Saving which is commonly known as “Nippers” is made up of infants, primary and secondary school aged children – Under 6 to Under 14 Age Group.

At North Entrance SLSC we have a unique program for our Tiny Tots from infants to under 4 age group. Learning to have fun at the beach and is the beginning of Surf Life Saving.

The aim of the North Entrance SLSC is to develop and educate Junior Activities Members where they learn about Surf Awareness and Safety, as required by the Surf Life Saving Australia ‘Surf ED’ program. Our focus is on participation and fun. We also promote progression and integration into the Senior ranks of the Club.

Nippers are on the beach each Sunday at 8.45am where we all meet in front of the Club House. Our Nippers are to line up in their Age Group where the Age Manager will mark off their Attendance.

Our JAC and or Water Safety Officer will speak to all Nippers about beach safety, surf conditions such as rip currents, sandbars and waves, upcoming events and news for parents so it’s important that everyone is there on time.

Our Rookies also learn some basic First Aid and may also learn CPR when they reach the age of 13. We may include our Nippers in learning basic First Aid, Surf Education if the weather conditions are not suitable to run Nippers.
