Trigg Island SLSC has a proud history of developing children into excellent surf lifesavers and team members. The kids will learn valuable skills that will hold them in good stead later in life, whilst also achieving confidence in the surf.

The main objective of the Nippers area is to ensure the kids have fun, whilst getting fitter and learning new skills. The kids are encouraged to try all areas of surf club from water activities such as swimming, board paddling and board rescue, to beach activities such as sprints and flags.

Children are allocated to an age group, for the purposes of training and competitions. Age groups start at U/6, with the final year being U/13.

Please note that for safety reasons one parent or guardian must remain on the beach with their children at all times, while they are participating in surf club activities.
