Targeted at young children between the ages of 5 to 14 years old, Nippers is a fun and safe way to introduce the lifesavers of tomorrow to the ocean environment. With the beach as our classroom, your child will gain confidence with swimming, bodyboarding, beach sprints, learning how to detect and manage a rip and most importantly have fun with new friends.

Cooks Hill LS & SC has a long and proud history of Nippers. Our Surf Club is one of the largest Nipper community’s in NSW with close to 700 Nippers joining us from October to March of each year.

Parents please remember that Junior Nipper Activities does not teach your children swimming, but surf confidence!
