Southport Surf Life Saving Club

Nippers are the Juniors, Under 6’s to Under 14’s of Surf Life Saving Australia, Junior activities can be very rewarding not only for the children but also for and the whole family. As the children are taught many aspects of surf lifesaving they also learn important beach and water skills and enjoy new found friendships that come with belonging to a surf club.


New Nippers

Southport Nipper days are held every Sunday from 8am between the months of September and March, with a break of a few weeks during the Christmas school holidays. Our program is very popular and places fill quickly. Southport Surf Life Saving Club Nippers will be celebrating its 50th year in the 2016/17 season and the Club has many exciting events planned!!

Grant Opportunity ‘Get Started’

The ‘Get Started’ Grant is one of three funding programs that comprise the QLD Government Sport and Recreation’s ‘Get in the Game’ initiative, aimed at helping Clubs grow by providing better sport and recreation activities at a grassroots level, and giving children who might not otherwise be able to afford it, the chance to get involved in sport.

Equipment Rentals

The Southport Surf Life Saving Club has a limited number of foamies available to hire this season. If your Nipper is attending board training or carnivals they will need to have their own board or an allocated rental from the Club. Board rental requests need to be submitted to the Lifesaving Office with payment.
