Batemans Bay Nippers


Nippers is about learning, confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment.


For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the ‘tests’ of swimming, body boarding, beach sprints, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and discovering things about themselves.


The skills gained in nippers will stick to the soul like sand from the beach and be carried for life.


Of Surf Life Savings Australia's 166,923 members, over 62,866 are nippers (5-13 years). This equates to nearly 40% of our total membership and shows just how significant the junior movement is within surf lifesaving.


The nippers of today are the future of surf lifesaving tomorrow. Find out how your child can become a nipper.


Nippers is held at Malua Bay beach on George Bass Drive Malua Bay most Sundays from 10:00 – 12:00 through October to April.
