Nipper Summer Program (U7 to U14)

Anglesea Nippers is a highly social physical activity and education program that aims to develop a basic knowledge of water safety and surf awareness including:

  • Water and beach hazards

  • Safe practices in the ocean

  • Basic surf swimming and board skills

  • Sustainability of the ocean environment

  • Introductory competition skills

  • Basic knowledge of resuscitation and first aid

Anglesea SLSC offers two streams of surf education and sport for a minimal cost. The programs are designed for children aged 6 - 13 years as at 30 September who have demonstrated minimum swim proficiency standards.​ Due to Covid restrictions limiting pool access, this will be done during the first session..

The first stream is an intensive surf education program (Nipper Summer Program) held over the two weeks following Christmas each year.

The second is a surf sport stream (Junior Competition Team/Dolphins) which runs all year round and builds on the skills developed during the Summer Program.

There is a strong focus on developing a sense of community and teamwork within age groups and across the program.

In addition Nippers will have the opportunity to extend themselves through informal and formal challenges and competitions.

The Nipper Summer Program concludes with an intra-Club competition (Club Champs) which is an opportunity for friendly competition in a relaxed Club atmosphere.

Nippers can continue on through the Club to complete their official Lifesaving qualifications including the Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) for Nipper aged 13-14 and the Bronze Medallion upon turning 15.
