Coolum Nippers Vision & Mission

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.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their continual support.
