Nippers was established at the Noosa Heads Surf Lifesaving Club in 1967. With 52 years experience we have grown to be the largest nippers program in Queensland. The program runs across both Noosa Heads and Peregian Beach. This gives families the flexibility of two different beach conditions. Peregian Beach has a small welcoming community. Peregian’s program is in its inaugural season and is continuing to flourish. Noosa Heads provides more sheltered conditions and an awesome competitive edge. Both locations have the same program, family-friendly environment and value for money.
The nipper program is designed to introduce children aged 5 to 14 to Surf Lifesaving. It is a fun outdoor activity that grows a child’s confidence and teaches valuable surf awareness skills. Our aim is to provide a safe, family-friendly and fun environment for our Nippers. Kids living on the coast should be equipped with the best skills and knowledge for safe us of Australian beaches. Our Nippers today are the next generation of Surf Lifesavers.
