Junior Activities 'Nippers' (5-13 years)

The fun of surf life saving starts when you join Junior Activities (Nippers)!

Nippers are on the beach each Sunday. At 0815am We will speak to all Nippers about coming events and news for parents so it is important nippers and their families are at the club at this time.

If you're thinking of introducing your child to lifesaving, then Junior Activities is for you. Lifesaving is something for the whole family to get involved in and there are many supporting roles that you can play as a parent of a child involved in Junior Activities.

Junior Activities has a minimum age requirement of five years to a maximum age of 13 years (age for a season is calculated as of midnight September 30 each year). Junior Activities has been operating in Queensland since 1965 and has grown to represent 35% of the total state membership. The Junior Activities program has become one of the most successful children's development and sporting programs in Australia.

The program is focused on participation and fun. Activities include surf safety, surfing, board paddling, board rescue, beach activities, basic resuscitation and first aid. Each age group progresses through a Junior Development Certificate and the program also develops skills in leadership and teamwork. The program is designed to provide an educational experience in a wide range of subjects and skills within the aquatic environment and prepares junior lifesavers for their eventual transition to the patrol environment of the senior movement. The program aims to promote the spirit of camaraderie and citizenship within the community. Before the start of the Junior Activities season each child is required to complete a Preliminary Skills Assessment designed to ensure that each child demonstrates a standard of competence in an aquatic environment. For more details on the skills assessment please refer to the Pacific Nippers handbook. Parents will need to take their children to a qualified swim instructor to be assessed and return the to their age manager as soon as possible form (the form as available to be downloaded from our website or just ask Tonya Pade (Registrar) for a copy.

SLSQ is committed to ensure the protection, safety and welfare of our young participants and believe that our policies must always place the safety and welfare of children and youth above all other considerations. For more information about the SLSQ Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy please the Surf Lifesaving Queensland Website. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our family friendly surf lifesaving club.
