Moruya Surf Life Saving Club runs an active Nipper’s program for children aged 5 to 14 years (inclusive).
At Moruya our focus is on educating and encouraging our nippers to gain confidence, respect and enjoyment for the beach environment. Skills are taught, practiced and assessed according to the age and ability of your child’s allocated group.
Children learn best when they are having fun, so while they are learning potentially ‘lifesaving’ skills they are also enjoying the teamwork and fun activities led by their age manager/s. Nippers is usually held at Moruya South Head Beach – our surf club beach. However, depending on conditions we may head over to Shelley Beach or on the river at North Heads.
As long as your child has turned 5 before 1 October, they can participate in water confidence, beach activities and occasionally joining in with the older kids to run relays and practice the ‘march past’, a traditional part of Surf Life Saving.
