The nipper program is run by our Nipper Coordinators together with the members of our lifeguard team. Nippers starts outside the front of the clubhouse to put children into their respective age groups, go over important notices and ensure that key safety items are passed on to children and parents. Sign-in We suggest arriving at least 10-15mins before the session to get organised and signing in your children for each session using the sign-in page for their age group at the clubhouse.
Pink nipper vests and club caps are compulsory and need to be worn by all nippers so we can quickly identify everyone. These will be available to purchase before the sessions. Pink vests cost $20.00 and caps are $10.00 (cash only).
What to wear It is important that the children are well prepared for an evening or afternoon at the beach and some essentials include:
Bathers, Long sleeve rashie for extra sun protection or warmth
