Welcome to the home of the Surfers Paradise Nippers, Gold Coast Nippers
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.
The skills gained in nippers will stick to the soul like sand from the beach and be carried for life.
If you're in the Gold Coast area and thinking of introducing your child to lifesaving, then Nippers is for you. Nippers is open to children from the age five up to 13 years (age for a season is calculated as of midnight September 30).
Lifesaving is something for the whole family to get involved in and there are many supporting roles that you can play as a parent of a child involved in Junior Activities.
