Joining Nippers

Welcome to Black Head Surf Life Saving Club Nippers. Nippers meet most Sundays at 9:30am during the months of October to March each season.

To be eligible to join Black Head Surf Life Saving Club Nippers, children must be five (5) years of age at the 30th September each year. Nippers learn about surf awareness and safety through Surf Life Saving Australia’s Surf Ed program. This program allows children to participate in activities from beach sprints and flags through to swimming and board paddling as they progress through the age groups. The emphasis here at Black Head Surf Life Saving Club is for Nippers to have fun while developing surf awareness.

For the Black Head Surf Life Saving Club Nippers to be a success, parental assistance is vital. The program cannot run successfully without the support of the parents and guardians of these young club members. Each week people are required to assist with the set up and pack down of the Nippers beach activities.

The Club runs a BBQ following the beach events each Sunday to sustain hungry Nippers and their families, and as a fundraiser for the club. This is an important social activity within Black Head Surf Life Saving Club, and volunteers who assist with running this event are welcomed and appreciated.

Nippers is a wonderful experience for the whole family as it develops fitness, sportsmanship and teamwork amongst all children who participate. It is  hoped that families will come along to Black Head Surf Life Saving Club and enjoy the season with Club Members and local residents.
