Surf Lifesaving Junior Development, better known as ''Nippers'' is an activity based program to develop "Young Surf Lifesavers of the Future".
At Maroubra SLSC we endeavour to teach children from the tender age of 5 through to 14 years about surf safety and awareness, basic first aid and lifesaving techniques.
We also introduce children to the competitive side of surf lifesaving as a means of developing, improving and maintaining their surf life saving skills and physical fitness.
Refer to our Weekly Activities, Competition Calendar and Training Calendar for our latest activity of events for our Nippers.
