Freshwater SLSC Nippers



Nippers resumes this Sunday 19th January.  Please note that there will be NO nippers the following Sunday 25th January due to Freshwater club hosting the Australia Day Open Carnival.

Nippers at Freshwater Beach offers kids a safe environment to enjoy running, swimming and boarding activities while learning about the surf, safety and lifesaving.


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.

The Nipper program is held during the summer period on Sunday mornings.

At Freshwater SLSC Nippers, we aim to promote an interest in Surf Lifesaving activities. We teach children water safety and encourage them through fun & good competition.

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.
