About Maroubra Nippers


Through Surf Lifesaving Junior Development, we foster resilience, self -reliance, community spirit, teamwork, initiative and a sense of camaraderie to strike up friendships to last a life time. Surf Lifesaving is a truly co-ed organistation with a principal focus on respect for one's self and each other.


Nippers is held at Maroubra SLSC on Sunday mornings during the spring and summer period, starting with a roll call from 8am sharp for U6-U8 and 9am for U9-13. We usually open for online registrations in early August and conduct Preliminary Aquatic Evaluations for the younger children, and Proficiency Swims for the older ones in early September. For those wanting to compete they will participate in Open Water Competition evaluation swims in October.


Our season usually begins on the first Sunday after the October Labour Day long weekend. Then it takes a break over the Christmas and New Year period, and resumes in late January, winding up with the State Championships in early March.
