Brunswick Nippers

Learn vital surf safety and survival skills while having fun on the beach...

Parent Involvement

Please introduce yourself to your child's Age Manager, we need all the help we can get in organising the children. Support from willing parents makes life easy for all and makes sure the children have a good time. We need judges, recorders and just good all round extra hands. Even if you can not commit to each week please try and fill in when and where needed.

Water Safety Help

If you are interested in doing your Bronze Medallion to help us with water safety, we are willing to train you. Please contact us

Club BBQ and Raffles

The Nippers run the club BBQ every Sunday as well as regular raffles as part of the fundraising for junior activities. Rosters will be prepared so that the work load is shared. You will be given the opportunity to nominate your preferred dates. Once completed the rosters will be available to view. If you are unable to help on your rostered day please contact somebody else to do your turn. Should you not be on a roster and would like to help please let a committee member know.

Officials for Competitions

We need parents that are willing to do training to obtain accreditation that will allow them to become an official at competitions. We are required to supply officials according to the number of competitors we send, so more assistance is always gratefully received.

Water Event Conditions

The safety of the children is our first concern. The Patrol Captain, Junior Activities President or Junior Water Safety officer are the only people authorised to allow water events to start or continue in the case of doubtful conditions. When children are in the water there is an official minimum ratio of water safety to children. If the level is not achieved water events can not continue.

Important Points to Note

The nippers are not a child minding service and parents/guardians are advised they should remain nearby should an incident occur or should events finish early. It is important for parents to remain on the beach for the children's safety and confidence. Parents should also be willing to get involved with their child's sport as helpers. The whole of the family can then enjoy being involved with Surf Life Saving.

Club uniforms, competition caps and other items are available for purchase through the club office on Sundays.
