Nippers

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Nipper Season

Junior Activities Chairperson

Welcome to another exciting season of nippers with Coolum Beach SLSC.

From our Sunday morning program to junior carnivals we look to provide our young lifesavers with confidence, knowledge and excellent surf and beach skills in an enjoyable environment. Sportsmanship, teamwork and a healthy active lifestyle are all important skills that we promote to our young lifesavers.

Our Sunday morning program commences at 7.30 am with sign-on and 7.45 am for parent and nipper briefing, concluding at approx. 10.30 am depending upon your age group.

Some exceptions to regular Sundays might occur – please see our Calendar of Events for more information.

Our program encompasses both practical water and beach-based activities and includes education components that develop understanding, skills, and values relative to surf lifesaving. We encourage all of our junior lifesavers to consider the many and varied pathways that are available to them.

Each junior lifesaver will complete a surf education certificate relative to their age group and will receive a Certificate at the end of the season to acknowledge their achievement. Junior lifesavers must be in attendance for the majority of the season to be eligible to be awarded their relevant Certificate and to enable participation at carnivals.

This year we are going to communicate with parents and supporters all via Team App, so once you have signed up and become a financial member please add this app to your phone and apply to be a part of our group which is called 'Junior Lifesavers Coolum Beach'.

Thank you for joining our team and we look forward to sharing many fun and rewarding moments with you all.

Coolum Nippers Vision & Mission 2017 - 2018

1. Vision

We aim to be the first choice for children and their families wanting to participate in Lifesaving in a family-friendly environment.

2. Mission

We are dedicated to a program that is ideal for all children, to:

  • grow their skills to be safe at and enjoy the beach
  • become surf lifesavers
  • compete at surf carnivals

We cherish and encourage family participation and support every child to be their best.

We do not compromise on child safety.

3. Approach

During the Lifesaving season we:

  • Operate a Sunday morning program designed to teach surf and beach skills, improve general fitness, and introduce basic surf lifesaving.
  • Offer mid-week skills and fitness training for those children wishing to extend themselves.
  • Participate in local and state based inter-club carnivals.
  • Assist children to transition into Coolum Beach SLSC Cadets, senior competition, and Lifesaving patrols.
  • Train and develop the skills of our volunteers so they can be their best.
  • Have as much fun as we possibly can.
