NIPPERS....FOR EVERYONE !
Welcome to our Thirroul Nippers Junior page. We hope that this encourages you to join or renew as we are proud to have such a strong community of nippers!
Thirroul SLSC has over 200 junior members who take part in SLSA's nipper program.
Registrations are now being taken online - please see the Registration tab for further details or email.
We have 3 simple goals we are striving for:
We produce our next generation of Life Savers.
Kids have fun while they learn
Pride in the Thirroul SLSC and community (appreciating the beautiful place in which they are fortunate to live)
Thirroul nippers is not focused on competition. Rather we try to focus on activities in which everyone can participate and learn essential skills. Every year we attempt to refine and strengthen the way we run nippers. So please send us any new ideas or feedback, it's all welcome
The Purpose of Nippers
Children learn about beach/water safety
Children learn essential life saving skills
Having absolutely great fun!
We are developing our future life savers that will take their turn on beach patrol for their community
It get's us all out of the house on a Sunday morning
