Nippers’ training involves loads of activities aimed at improving fitness, developing teamwork and life saving skills such as:

  • Surf awareness
  • Swimming
  • Board paddling
  • Wading
  • Beach running
  • Basic rescue techniques
  • Basic resuscitation
  • Lifesaving competition skills

All activities are conducted on the beach by parents who have trained as Age Managers to become volunteer instructors and are supervised by qualified lifesavers.
