About Nippers

20121226-IMG_3455

The Inverloch SLSC Nippers Program is an intensive program run over two weeks after Christmas at the Inverloch Surf Beach. The short length of our program means that our main focus is on surf education and having fun.

The Nipper Program aims to teach children surf-safety awareness, surf skills, lifesaving skills, teamwork and limited competition skills. Nippers will learn to identify beach hazards such as rips and gain a basic knowledge of resuscitation and first aid skills. We follow the LSV Junior Development Awards for our programs.

We cover limited competition skills and encourage participation in at least one carnival per season. If you are interested in competing, please speak to our competition director.

WE CAP THE NUMBERS FOR NIPPERS AT 250. NO EXCEPTIONS. APPLICATIONS WILL OPEN 1ST AUGUST AND CLOSE 1ST NOVEMBER.
