Parents are the backbone of Yanchep Surf Lifesaving Club Nippers! We would not exist without the help of our dedicated volunteer parent helpers. Every parent has an important role to play in the delivery and support of our activities on the beach and in the water.

The more you get involved, the more your child will enjoy nippers. There are countless volunteer jobs around the club and you don’t need to have had any surf life-saving experience.

Yanchep SLSC Nippers requires at least one parent to join the club and offer support in running Nippers. We are all volunteers and are only able to offer our great program with volunteers and support.

If you would like to help out this year contact our Nippers Co-Ordinator,  Jason Maliphant,

For further information click on the Volunteers link above.

Please remember…..We are all volunteers!! 

ALL our Age Managers, Water Safety and Committee Members are volunteers – parents, just like you -  who have given up their time for your children. 

Please respect them, help them where you can and say thanks!

We really like that!!

 Awaken the lifesaver inside you today.
