Nipper Education Program

The major program for children at Life Saving Clubs in Victoria is the Nipper Education Program (5 – 14 years). This National program is structured specifically to their ages and abilities, and gradually teaches kids basic lifesaving skills required to be safe around an aquatic environment as well as developing their skills to compete in surf sports.

As the Nipper program is designed to teach lifesaving skills and safety around the beach, we strongly encourage all parents of children with limited swimming ability to enrol them in swimming lessons first. Upon registering your child with a Life Saving Club Nipper program, they will be required to pass a set of evaluation skills including a swimming assessment.
