Nipper Sponsorship

Why Partner With Us?

Our Club motto is “Developing Lives that Save Lives” and we recognise our youth are the future leaders of both Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club and the local community. Community feeling towards surf life saving is extremely positive and surf lifesavers are an iconic part of Australian culture. Supporting our Nippers aligns your business with one of the most trusted, recognised and well-loved organisations in the country.

Dicky Beach Nippers has a membership of around 400 children and their families and we operate one of the largest Nipper programs in Queensland. The children participate in Sunday training sessions between September and March each year where they swim, board paddle, beach sprint, dolphin dive, spot rips, have fun with their friends and learn about the surf environment. Nippers is a uniquely Australian activity and there’s nothing else quite like it!

How Does Your Support Help Our Nipper Program?

Our Nipper program is run by volunteers, who give their time freely however to operate successfully we require a large amount of equipment which is essential to keeping our children safe – for example rescue tubes, rescue boards and inflatable rescue boats. For our Nipper activities, we also need shade tents, ropes, beach equipment, Nipper
training boards, buoys and flags. A number of our volunteers require uniforms and it is compulsory that our Nippers wear high visibility pink rash shirts and caps for recognition and safety in the ocean. We deliver the Surf Life Saving Australia Junior Development Program and an important aspect is is ensuring our Nippers participate in development camps. Sponsorship funding is also vital in supporting these activities

Become a Lifesaving Sponsor

Why Partner With Us

Surf Life Saving is Australia’s major water safety and rescue authority and one of the largest volunteer organisations in the country. All surf lifesavers receive extensive training through completing their Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate. Whilst specifically tailored to a beach environment, these skills are transferable to everyday situations ultimately making our overall community a safer place. Consequently, community feeling towards surf life saving is extremely positive and surf lifesavers are an iconic part of Australian culture.

Supporting our Club aligns your business with a trusted, recognised and well-loved charity organisation. We currently have approximately 1200 members, of which over 42% are aged under 18. Between September and March each year we successfully operate one of the largest Nipper programs in Queensland. Our Club motto is “Developing Lives that Save Lives” as we recognise our youth are the future leaders of both Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club and the local community. Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Sponsorship Oppurtunities

To maintain our overall success, we seek the support of businesses within our community. Your sponsorship helps us to uphold our high level of service and grow our organisation for the benefit of our volunteer members and the community at large.

We offer different sponsorship packages for your organisation to get involved. Our sponsorship program is designed to positively influence the brand equity of your organisation, as the sponsor, by increasing brand awareness and reinforcing positive attitudes toward your company through association with Surf Life Saving and specifically Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club.

The contribution to the Dicky Beach community from sponsorship of our Club enhances the safety of Dicky Beach by providing the necessary training to develop the skills required to become a competent lifesaver. This also provides greater opportunities for the development of young members of the community and promotes the image of Dicky Beach as a safe environment. Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club provides organisations with several tiers of involvement for sponsorship with packages designed to meet the unique marketing requirements of each sponsor.
