Woodside Nippers

Nippers is a surf awareness program that is offered for children from the ages of 5-13.

Nippers will learn about Surf Safety and Awareness in a fun activity-based program.

Nippers will help build confidence, whilst learning valuable life skills and knowledge in a safe beach environment. Nippers also have the opportunity to join our Competition Squad and participate in competitive events throughout the season. More information can be found by clicking on the Competition page.

Nippers must be 5 by the 30 September, this is a requirement of SLSWA.

All Nippers (except those under 7) are required to undertake a proficiency swim, please refer to the Nippers FAQ 2021-2022 for further information.

Woodside Nippers 2021/2022 Season

The Season commences Sunday 24th October 2021 and runs until the end of March 2022. We do break for Christmas, please refer to the Important Dates to Remember.

All groups are to meet at the Surf Club: 8:30am for a 9:00 am start.

Assemble near the wall at the front of the Surf Club, your Age Manager will be wearing your colour cap.

Have sunscreen on!

The Age Group Managers will call the roll and mark attendance.

Prepare for a morning of education, beach games, water activities, and fun!

No Woodside Nipper is to enter the water unless authorised by the Age Manager.

At the end of the session, all Woodside Nippers are to walk back to the club where the Age Manager, once you are checked off the attendance, will release you to your parents/guardians.

The club offers a Sausage Sizzle and our cafe is open for healthy food choices on Sunday morning after the session. Funds raised go back to the club.

How can we help you today?

Simply fill in your details and we’ll get back to you very soon.
