The Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club Junior Activities Program is affectionately known as Nippers.
Nippers are aged between 6 and 14 years and participate in a range of fun and engaging activities designed to develop surf skills, boost confidence and train our Nippers to become the Surf Life Savers of the future.
The Nippers season runs from October to March with activities planned most Sunday mornings from 9.00am to 11.00am. Nippers takes a brief break for Christmas and New Year and Nipper Days are not held when a competitive carnival is scheduled. CLICK HERE for this season’s Nipper Calendar.
Nipper Days are packed with fun activities that offer children opportunities to make friends, be active and gain invaluable knowledge around how to be safe on the beach and confident in the water.
In addition, Byron Bay Surf Lifesaving Club offers opportunities for Nippers to compete in Surf Sports at Club, Branch, State and National levels. Surf Sports gives Nippers the chance to practice their skills at other beaches and in a wider variety of conditions. As well, Carnivals are a great way to meet other people from different Clubs as well as develop the skills be confident to enjoy the ocean at beaches beyond Byron Bay.
Nippers is a great opportunity for the whole family to connect and get involved with many roles available for parental participation so unlike many other sports, there’s no need to feel relegated to the sidelines.
