What is 'Nippers'?

Every parent wants their child to be happy, healthy and active. There is no better way to encourage this than by introducing your child to surf lifesaving and Nippers at Dixon Park Surf Life Saving Club. 

Nippers is all about learning, confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence with swimming, body boarding, beach sprints, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, and having fun with new friends.

Nippers is a junior program that introduces children aged 5 to 13 to surf lifesaving. It's a fun outdoors activity that increases confidence, while teaching valuable life skills.

The Nippers Season usually runs from October to March each year. Due to COVID restrictions, a full season may not be possible. We will update our Nipper community as advice changes.
