Welcome to Dicky Beach Nippers! 

Our club motto is ‘Developing Lives to Save Lives” and Nippers are a dynamic part of the Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club community.

Nippers offer a fun and active lifestyle choice for children between the ages of 5 and 13, as well as a solid base for learning and competition in beach and water-based activities. Nippers is held every weekend between September and March (excluding a break over Christmas) and children are taught everything from sun and surf safety, beach sprints, board paddling and lifesaving skills like CPR and water rescues.

Our Nippers program is not just about the kids, it also encompasses parents who choose to become involved with either teaching beach activities to the kids or who want to achieve their own milestones like completing their Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion.

We pride ourselves on being a family friendly club and encourage everyone to become involved in the club and its activities throughout the year. There are many ways of helping and in our experience, there is nothing more satisfying than being involved with your children as they learn and have fun.

For those interested in joining the Dicky Beach Nippers family, further information can be accessed below or via the Nipper Handbook
