Proficient members form part of a rostered Patrol team which can include award holders of the Bronze Medallion, Advanced Resusitation Certificate, IRB Crewman and Driver Certificates, Operational First Aid, Radio Operators Certificate and Surf Rescue Certificate to name a few.
Each year around September the Coolum Beach Nippers commence their season of Surf Awareness and Training. Each year many of the Nippers also compete in local, state and national surf lifesaving competitions. Ages start from 7 years old as at 30th September. Click Here for more information.
