Welcome Nippers

Welcome to the 2018/19 nippers season at Tacking Point Surf Life Saving Club (TPSLSC).

For returning nippers and their parents/carers, it's great to have you back. For new nippers and members, welcome to our club! We pride ourselves on being a fun and friendly club where everyone is valued and supported regardless of skill level or experience on the beach.

With nearly 170,000 members and 313 affiliated Surf Life Savings clubs, Surf Life Saving Australia represents the largest volunteer movement of its kind in the world. Surf Life Saving exists to save lives, create great Australians and build better communities.

As such, the primary aim of our Nippers Program at TPSLSC is to train young lifesavers of the future. Your child will learn many skills throughout the program, including surf awareness, how to perform a surf rescue, first aid, CPR, decision-making, problem solving, leadership and teamwork. Plus, they'll have lots of fun and make some great friends!

We'd love you to join in!

Nippers is held each Sunday morning from 8.30-10.30am with the help of our many volunteers. As with all programs involving young people, it's the parents and carers that make it a success, so we'd love you to join in! A helping hand with beach set-up and pack-up or nipper activities on the beach ensures the morning runs smoothly for everyone.

What's more, many of our parents and carers obtain their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) and Bronze Medallion qualifications so they can provide support and encouragement in the water with their kids. We need enough Water Safety Crew for our water events to go ahead, plus the kids love having their Mum, Dad or carer out there with them! SRC and Bronze Medallion courses are held throughout the season. If you're interested in gaining these qualifications, please contact me or one of the other Junior Activities Committee members.

Parent information session 4th November

A parent information session will be held on Sunday 4th November at 10.30am in the clubhouse. We strongly encourage you to attend this session to get a better understanding of nippers and our club as a whole.

Finally, I'd love to hear your feedback throughout the season, particularly ways to improve the nippers experience for you and your child. If I'm unavailable, please feel free to speak with your child's Age Manager or one of the committee members.

See you on the beach!
