Nippers

WELCOME TO KAWANA NIPPERS


 

 2023/24 NIPPER SEASON NOW FINISHED

Registration Date for 2024/25 Season TBA

Please note, Nippers is not a learn to swim program. All nippers are expected to have a certain level or pool swimming ability. Please see the pool proficiency link. If your child cannot meet the requirements, they are not ready for nippers this season or require intensive swim training prior to joining in.

For any general nipper enquiries please contact Greera in the administration office. The administration office is located on the west side of the Surf Club.

For child safety management it is required that parents involved in the running of nippers have a Blue Card. The volunteer card is free of charge. Forms to apply for a Blue Card can be found on the Forms page, link below. We encourage all members to Register or Link their Blue Cards pre-season to save having to do it mid-season if you become involved.

BEGINNERS BOARD CAMP

Our Beginner Board Camp is a new program aimed at U9’s and above who are new to board paddling. Nippers must be in U9 or older this season to attend. This 3 day intensive board training program is run by our Kawana Lifesavers and supported by Kawana Youth, who will teach your nippers basic board paddling skills like positioning on the board, paddling technique, how to pop and of course catching waves!

 

Next Camp will be in late 2024
