Training our Nippers

At Maroubra SLSC we encourage all nippers to get involved in extra training.

We offer several different training groups including board training, surf swimming sessions, beach sprints, March Past and R&R training for all our junior lifesavers. 

We have also developed a pathway for our nippers to progress into the senior competition training groups. This ensures that as their skills improve and they mature they have the opportunity to easily progress to senior ranks of competition and mix it with some serious athletes.

For all competitors, its a requirement that you support your  training by joining a swim squad with your local swim club for water competition or athletics club for sand competition.

 Maroubra has also introduced Grade Based Training which will focus on specific areas for our competitors to ensure the right training program is provided to develop their surf skills. Our head surf coach will assess each competitor and advise which training session(s) they should attend.
