Nippers Membership Requirements
At least one parent/guardian must join as a member for a child to join nippers, if you do not hold a Bronze or SRC you will need to join as an Associate. We encourage both parents to join the club however at least one parent per family must join the surf life saving club and accompany their child on the beach during nipper sessions. How to join
All Green Cap Nippers require at least one parent/guardian in the water up to their childs' knees, during water activities.
The annual pool swim evaluation is a requirement of Surf Life Saving Australia. Each season prior to participating in any junior activity, ALL junior members (nippers) must complete a proficiency swim assessment at a pool. Proficiency also assists in the management of junior activities. Nippers can do their proficiency pool swim at either a pool sign-on day, which their own swim coach (if they have lessons) or at your local pool. Please contact the pool first to arrange a suitable time. If you are arranging pool swim yourself, please use this form - Pool Evaluation Form
