We aim to promote an interest in Surf Lifesaving activities. We teach children water safety and encourage them through fun & good competition.

Nippers is an activity-based program run to educate young children about surf safety and awareness when visiting a beach. The nipper program also offers participants the opportunity to meet a new set of friends whilst they are being challenged in activities controlled within a learning environment.

Surf Life Saving (SLS) is the platform from which surf sports is based. All competitors are expected to fulfil their SLS obligations as a prerequisite to their competition. Mutual respect between competitors of all disciplines encourages participation and support throughout the club.

The focus on junior development and the loyalty of its competitors allows a long term approach to development and ensures long term success of the club.
