The Nipper program is for children aged five to thirteen years. Junior activities can be very rewarding, not only for the children but also for the whole family. Nippers are taught many aspects of surf lifesaving, learning important beach and water skills, while enjoying new found friendships that come with belonging to a surf club.
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 celebrated its 50th year in early 2017 and we go into the next 50 in a position of strength and unity.
New registrations for the 2017/18 Nipper season will open from the 1st of August 2018. If you would like to register your interest, please submit an enquiry at the bottom of the page. We will keep your details on file and forward information towards the end of July, ready for new applications commencing in August.
We encourage all current members to renew their membership before this time as places are limited.
All Returning Nippers please submit renewal applications without delay to guarantee your place in Southport Nippers for the 2017/18 season – renewal information can be found in the links below:
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.
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.
