BRONZE MEDALLION COURSES : Nippers is a real family event, we love parents joining in. Anyone who has ever considered doing their bronze pop your name on the list at sign-on or let one of the committee members know, it’s a wonderful set of skills to have in & out of the water. The bronze medallion is also necessary for any parent wanting to help with water safety and being an official.

We will be running more courses during the year, put your name down and we will keep you updated with times & dates.  Check the Calendar for next course dates.
