"EVERY SUMMER, MEET NEW FRIENDS,
LEARN, SWIM AND SURF."
Nippers (Junior Surf Education)
2023/ 2024 SEASON
PLEASE NOTE -THE FOLLOWING NIPPER AGE GROUPS ARE NOW CLOSED DUE TO REACHING MAXIMUM NUMBERS- U6, U7, U8, U9.
Nippers is about learning, confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the ‘tests’ of swimming, body-boarding, beach sprints, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and discovering things about themselves.
At Frankston Life Saving Club we encourage parents to be involved, with opportunities to volunteer as; Age Managers, Officials, Water Safety and other Parent Helpers assisting set up and pack up, equipment care, BBQ and further social, event and fundraising activities, as well as the possibility of acquiring their Surf Rescue Certificate, Bronze Medallion and other awards.
