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.
